About

Enter the tactical cutting world with the Launch 16, featuring a partially serrated tanto blade and extremely high edge retention. This automatic opener withstands the toughest cutting tasks with a thick blade profile and high-end M4, a balanced super steel with superior hardness and toughness. The tanto blade shape is ideal for piercing cuts, and the partially serrated edge will easily saw through rope. Trac-Tec handle inserts, oversized jimping, and a finger choil offer a secure grip. This push-button rocket is all stealthy with a black anodized handle and a black Cerakote blade. Carry it comfortably on the go with a reversible deep-carry pocket clip. While discreet, the Launch 16 also makes a lot of noise with a standout blade and unbeatable ergonomics.

  • Made in the USA; tactical work knife with partially serrated tanto blade
  • Black anodized aluminum handle; Trac-Tec inserts, oversized jimping, and finger choil for extra security
  • Premium CPM M4 blade steel excels at edge retention, toughness, and hardness; black Cerakote coating helps prevent corrosion
  • Low-profile push button makes it harder for blade to accidentally deploy; deep-carry pocket clip is easily reversible for left/right carry

Comply with all local, State, and Federal regulations regarding the purchase, owning, carrying, and transportation of automatic knives.
