CobraTec Knives Small CTK-1 SBCTK-1SDS – Satin D2 Partially Serrated Drop Point Combo Blade – Black Aluminum Alloy Handle – Tactical Black Pocket Clip & Hardware – Double Action Out the Front Automatic
CobraTec Knives, based out of Texas, offers a number of automatic pocket knives, specializing in Out the Front autos. Our newest carry here at SRKT, seeing them for the first time in May 2022, we are absolutely blown away at the action on these OTF’s, as they come in at a very affordable price point. With most of their main-line OTF’s being available at less than $200, these are the best OTF’s we’ve seen that make a less-than $300 sized hole in your pocket, and they are certainly comparable to some of the more well-known and premium-priced out the fronts on the market. Many of CobraTec’s models feature tough D2 steel, offering great edge retention, and relatively-easy resharpening. Some other steels that the US-based company uses include Crucible 154CM and Bohler M390. Needless to say, CobraTec doesn’t skimp on their materials, especially considering the price.
Side-opening automatics, OTF and fixed pen knives, fixed blades, and wallets are also featured in CobraTec’s wide range of products. On top of that, they offer a huge number of handle finishes, including basic shades of black, white and green, brighter colors such as tiffany blue, pink, and red, and homages to first responders and American-flag finished handles. Some upgraded models also come with cerakote finished handles, giving them two tones and some extra style.
No matter what you’re looking for, CobraTec is sure to have something that will fit your style and needs. Dozens of models, multiple (and customizable) blade shapes, and a great no-hassle lifetime warranty round off this solid and underrated knife manufacturer. In our opinion, CobraTec offers some of the best automatic pocket knives for their price range. We highly recommend trying one of these guys out, especially if you’re looking for your first OTF, or to add something new to your collection. Be sure not to forget about their side-openers, pen knives, and fixed blades!
CobraTec Knives are all manufactured in Texas, United States. Materials for CobraTec are also all US-made, however, parts are sent as raw materials to China for shaping and milling, then returned to the US for manufacturing. Us at SRKT love the fact that most of the process that goes into making these affordable yet high-quality knives is based in the United States.
The CTK-1 collection by CobraTec, one of their two main out the front auto lines, features a ribbed aluminum alloy handle, allowing for far superior grip. The machined texture on the CTK-1’s make the smooth aluminum handle much more difficult to drop. As with many of CobraTec’s knives, and all of their standard collection knives, all of the models in this line come with tough D2 steel, which allows for a high level of edge retention, meaning you’ll have to sharpen your new blade a lot less than you’re used to. An incredibly smooth and enjoyable double-action mechanism, including a strong lockup and rapid action, the CTK-1 line knives make for incredible everyday carry’s, slicing through tasks with ease and allowing for fast over and over use. CobraTec offers an abundance of handle finishes and blade styles within the CTK-1 collection, so you’re sure to find one you fall in love with.
The small CTK-1 knives are a great size as a daily carry. Disappearing in both your pocket and your hand, the small CTK-1’s won’t let you down when it comes to getting things done. A bit heavier than most OTF’s it’s size, at 5 oz., the small CTK-1 is made for heavy duty use, while being small enough to forget you have in your pocket. Measuring in at 7” total including the glass breaker, this knife size is a favorite by EDC fans across the market. All of the knives in the CTK-1 collection feature a pocket clip, glass breaker, and black nylon belt sheath.
This specific model, SBCTK-1SDS, comes with a black aluminum handle. Blacked out hardware and a black pocket clip give this CobraTec a very tactical look. A partially serrated drop point blade allows for great versatility. Many daily knife-users prefer the combo/partially serrated blade, especially with the standard drop point shape. Manufactured in the United States, comes with a black nylon belt sheath and foam-padded plastic CobraTec branded case. Lifetime Warranty.
