Your boots are made for more than walkin’ — but that’s our little secret.

The tactical knife gurus at Smith & Wesson have designed this Badass Knife of the Week to fit snugly and securely in your footwear for the utmost discretion.

Standing for Hostage Rescue Team, the Smith & Wesson H.R.T. Tactical Boot Knife is the perfect choice for a last-ditch weapon when things get rough.

The double-edged 4.74-inch fixed blade made of 420HC stainless steel is sturdy enough to last through even the harshest conditions, while the black Teflon coating removes the reflective qualities of the steel and ensures it won’t get stuck on its way out.

The handle is not only designed to feel comfortable and natural in the hand but it also offers a superior grip. Even in different conditions, you’ll feel confident that the knife will stay firmly within your grasp. A crossguard prevents your hand from sliding up onto the blade when you’re using it.

As with any last-ditch knife, the sheath is of utmost importance. This H.R.T. boot knife comes with a secure leather sheath that uses a snap fastener to keep the knife tucked away until you need it.

A pocket clip attached to the back of the sheath offers up a range of options for how and where it can be carried.

If police officers and military personnel can count on this knife’s added security while working in dicey situations, so can you.
