New from Battle Blades: Rail Mounted Knife

P1260323

Battle Blades is here at the NRA Annual Meeting showing off their new rail mounted knife. The idea is that a hunter can quickly transition from their rifle (or crossbow, or anything with a rail) to the knife in order to be able to finish off their prey, and never have to have that knife uncomfortably diffing into them as they’re sitting in the blind or get lost in your pack. It’s a pretty nifty idea, and the reversible design (camo on one side, black on the other) makes it even better. The knives come in either a drop point or tanto design, and look pretty bad ass. I might have to get one of these for my 300 BLK rifle.

  1. “The idea is that a hunter can quickly transition from their rifle (or crossbow, or anything with a rail) to the knife…”

    Why not just go buy wild game meat at the butcher shop?

  2. You’d have to be a ‘Tier One Operator’ to actually need or use one of those, but that doesn’t stop me from *wanting* it. That said, all of my black rifles already have bayonets, but they tend to draw unwanted attention at the range…

  3. Oh goody, something else to hang off the wanker rails. Won’t be long and your favorite rifle can weigh 40 pounds.

  4. I hunt with a 91/30 made pre-WWII and use iron sights. I do alright.

    I also left it sighted in for use with the bayonet, whose bore I trimmed just enough that it goes on without a pile driver and comes off without dynamite.

    Glad it’s there, too; I flushed a boar one time and that bayonet paid for all the flak I take at the range.

    I likes bayonets, I does.

    • Already bought one. Made by Ka-Bar for Laserlyte. Amazon for 19.95 not a real practical thing but a good conversation piece on my Springfield XD-40’s bottom front rail. It is a nice little knife though.

  5. Nice — now they need to tweak the rail mount so that the knife can be used as the angled / vertical foregrip so your hand is always on the handle…

  6. I think having my knife attached to my rifle is a bad idea. The knife belongs on *me* so if something happens to my rifle, I still have the knife. Survival 101 – keep critical tools on your person.

    I literally laughed aloud at the idea of Joe Hunter needing to rapidly transition from their rifle to whatever they just shot to ‘finish it off quickly’. You shot something with your rifle at arms length? Or you shot something that the rifle failed to kill, and you now think your knife is a better choice than say, a second round of rifle ammo?

  7. Seems UTTERLY pointless to me. Not that a knife wouldn’t be useful in such a situation, but if you have a good sheath, it won’t be digging into you. Something like this is just a way of showing off to your tacticool buddies…
