Story

Though you can find British standard-issue jack knives of this design dating back to the 19th century, our British Army Clasp Knife is a NATO update from the 1990s. The all-stainless construction of our British Army Clasp Knife is built to weather the elements over land or water, and the two folding tools are only the essentials. The blade is a sheepsfoot shape that can easily be deployed, even with gloved or cold fingers, and is particularly adept at slicing cord. The locking spine keeps the blade safely open until it is ready to be returned. Beside the blade is a classic can opener that we don't mind doubling as a marlinespike when needed. The hinge side of the body has an extended tab that comes in handy for large slotted screws, but even more so as an oyster shucker. Made in Sheffield, England, our British Army Clasp Knife is both a classic piece of militaria and a piece of cutlery history whose toughness is beyond doubt.
