The M1911 pistol, designed by Utahan John M. Browning, was the standard-issue firearm for the military between 1911 and 1985. It was carried in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, The Vietnam War, and by some special operations units in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It is, undoubtedly, one of the most badass guns ever to exist, a slim, single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated stunner, good enough for capping guerillas in the jungle or protecting your home from intruders.
Now, you can buy folding knives and tactical knives with the same grip designs that the M1911 has.
Made by Ultimate Equipment, these knives come with standard 1911 pistol bushings, grip screws and grip panels, allowing you to customize your knife with whatever grips you need. You can even match your gun grips to your knife, like this:
The knives are available in three different types: standard folders, officer compact knives and fixed blade knives.
For every blade type, you have a choice of satin-polished or black-titanium-nitride finishes, and a variety of grip panels. Additionally, the knives come with a hammerhead lock, which enables users to open and close the knife with only two fingers.
The knives, which range in price from $100-$150, include a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.
