ISAK Blue: Israeli Folding Combat Knife

The ISAK ‘Blue’ folding combat knife has a distinctive look, far different from most U.S. market ‘tactical folders.’ American knife guys seldom go for oversized pommels and forward-angled blades, but the Blue’s look signals its design heritage and its intended use. It was designed with, and is carried by Israeli SWAT units.

I tend to take these kinds of ‘combat’ demonstrations with a grain of salt, because an expert in military-level Krev Maga can make any weapon look incredibly effective and lethal. (And that’s because just about any weapon becomes incredibly effective and lethal in their hands.)

YouTube videos may not prove anything, but I take Israeli military endorsement at full face value, because the IDF only carries top-quality kit. Steelophiles might be unimpressed with a 440C knife that costs a full Benjamin, but this $100 knife made the grade with one of the world’s most experienced militaries.

And it just looks like a beast. It’s nearly six inches long when closed, and the 4.7 inch blade is a hair shy of a quarter-inch thick. At eleven ounces, you’d better put on a rigger’s belt before you slip this in your (very large) pocket.

The ‘Blue’ is way too big for anything resembling EDC use, so ISAK also sells a downsized 3.5 inch ‘Red’ model for $85.

    Probably more knife than most need, or are capable of using, as designed.
    One thing is sure, Israel doesn’t use or issue equipment that doesn’t work.
    If it passed their tests, it will likely pass any tests you can come up with.

    They stole the cold steel narrator.

    Wait, I’m confused…. If they want a super strong, 11 ounce knife for military applications why not go with a fixed blade?

    This looks like a fairly badass knife to me. The Isrealis damn sure would not use or endorse it if it was not badass. Agree that 440C is not that impressive in a 1/8″ American/Chinese blade, however 1/4″ 440C is at least adequately impressive, if not truly badass. $100 is not out of line for a knife this size if it is quality construction. They do also have a fixed blade model. I note that their web page processes order payments through Paypal, and I despise Paypal.
