You could do much worse than keeping a Smith & Wesson in your boot. Luckily for you, the knives and accessories of the legendary personal safety brand have been the constant companions of law enforcement officers, military servicemen and women, emergency workers, and other brave souls for centuries.

This fixed blade boot knife is no exception.

Standing for Hostage Rescue Team, the H.R.T. Tanto Boot Knife is designed for the toughest tasks. The 4.75-inch tanto blade is 7Cr17MoV high carbon stainless steel, which is easy to sharpen and resist corrosion. Black coating on the blade not only reduces the reflection of the steel but also adds extra protection.

The knife measures in at an overall length of nine inches, which is just the right size for a work boot or Western-style boot, and its resilient sheath will keep it secure as you go about your day.

Get the jump on rattlers, scorpions, and other wilderness menaces with this super-sharp and devastating knife!
