Coast Rapid Response 3.90 Knife Review

Recently the UPS driver brought a Coast pocket knife to my doorstep. It was in a handsome black box with red accenting. This immediately telegraphed to me the contents of the box might be something a military special ops team member might use. Inside the box was the sleek Coast Rapid Response 3.90.

I was right. I'm sure a Navy Seal or two has this knife. If not, they should.

This well-built knife sports a stainless-steel blade that’s just under 4 inches long. When closed, the blade is hidden inside a gorgeous textured nylon-fiberglass handle. 

WARNING: Do not allow the knife to leave your hands. Never permit your friends to touch the knife. This action may result in you having great difficulty getting the knife back into your pocket.

The Smooth Assist Technology roller-bearing design allows you to deploy the blade, once the safety is turned off, with a simple thumb movement. With a modest thumb movement, the blade snaps to attention ready to get to work.

You don’t need two hands to open the knife. It’s very slick.

The belt clip can be switched in less than a minute if you’re a lefty. Because the knife only weighs in at 4.8 ounces, you’ll not even feel it in your pocket. Traditional knives this size would make you feel like you had a rock in your pocket all day.

This knife, or really any one from Coast, would make an ideal stocking stuffer. Buy two of them today and treat yourself to one. I guarantee you that you'll love this knife!
