Match your gun grips to your knife handle with the M1911 knife

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.

    I JUST found this post and while it was written in 2011 and I’m seeing it in 2017, I went to the site link to see some M1911 knives and/or grips but for the life of me I can’t find either.
    Any chance you can point me to them?

    Oops. My bad. I didn’t see the one link that takes me right to what I am seeking. Screen color if going out.
    Regardless, as this is an older article and I noticed that some items were runs of 30 or so, does the on-line site represent what types and kinds of blades you currently sell?
    Again, TIA.

    • Well, we (Knife Depot) no longer carry the knives, but you may still be able to find them on the Ultimate Equipment site we linked to in the post.

  3. Hi. I cannot find the 1911 knives or prices on your site.
