When you need a knife that opens up lightning fast, won’t break the bank, and makes you feel ready for any conceivable disaster, it’s hard to beat a Smith & Wesson knife. Just take a look at the latest Badass Knife of the Week.

The Smith & Wesson SWMP1B Military & Police Knife is a tough folder that will perform so reliably it’ll be your new favorite everyday carry in no time.

It starts with the wicked sharp blade. The scooped back design and modified clip point create a unique profile that’s both functional and badass. A slight recurve on the edge offers more strength and versatility while an aggressive point at the tip allows you to make penetrating cuts with ease.

Black coating on the blade helps reduce the overall reflective properties of the steel and complement the aesthetics of the knife.


But the real magic of the knife shines through the assisted-opening mechanism known as M.A.G.I.C. (Multipurpose, Assisted, Generational, Innovative Cutlery). Once you begin to open the blade with the dual thumb studs or flipper, the M.A.G.I.C. mechanism does the rest. The liner lockup on the knife is swift and reliable. A safety switch ensures the knife never opens accidentally.

The handle may not look like something you want to grip for hours on end, but once you get the knife in your hands, you’ll be singing its praises. Although the handle scales are made from aluminum, strategically placed rubber inserts provide comfort and tactility.

A few bonus features adorn the knife, including a glass breaker at the butt and a pocket clip for easy carry.
