Description

LA Police Gear is already known for breaking into segments with exciting, useful products that not only look good and function highly, but save you a lot of money too. Now we're breaking into the knives segment with an entire line. The best part is that you can get a high quality knife at very reasonable prices because we cut out the middle man and pass the savings on to you.

The LAPG TBFK S35VN EDC Folding Knife is made with high quality S35VN Steel. S35VN Steel is known for it's ability to withstand long-term use and is more than four times as tough as commonly used 440C and 154CM steel. This toughness ensures the blade will resist chipping and hold an edge. S35VN steel is also easier to polish and sharpen.

You may be thinking, what's with all the acronyms LAPG? Well we got so excited describing how awesome this knife is that the name got too long! The full name: LA Police Gear "The Best F***ing Knife" S35VN Every Day Carry Folding Knife. Now you see why we abbreviated it.

The LAPG TBFK S35VN EDC Folding Knife has a low-profile pocket clip that allows you to carry it with ease, and the ambidextrous thumb studs and flipper tab ensure a fast, smooth draw. The ball bearing mechanism ensures an incredibly smooth and quick draw. While this knife is not spring loaded, it opens so smoothly and quickly already you won't miss the spring at all. This knife is available in a drop point blade with a black stone washed or satin finish, all wrapped up in handsome G10 handles.

    Great knife
    August 19, 2017
    This is the second time I bought this knife. I somehow lost my first one and had to replace it asap. I'm not an expert on pocketknives. Being Butcher of nearly forty years I do know little bit about keeping an edge. This knife remains sharp and is easily maintained with a few passes down a steel. It's great knife at any price. By it!
    Pros:
    Quality, Price, Easy to use
    Cons:
    None

    Exceeded my expectations...
    August 18, 2017
    After hearing all of the positive press on this knife, I decided I had to try it. I'll admit that I was skeptical of getting anything of great quality at this price point, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The TBFK is a winner in almost every regard, and certainly the hands-down champion in value at its price point. The drop-point blade is ideal for EDC, and I personally prefer the texturing and contouring of the G-10 handles of this knife to the "grippier" (i.e., more abrasive) handles found many other knives. It's true that the fit & finish of the TBFK aren't as refined as a Zero Tolerance or even a Benchmade, but the overall quality is pretty remarkable for a $35 knife with a S35V blade. It is a tad heavy because of the steel liners, the that's a minor nit (for me). A not-so-minor nit is the truly unfortunate fact that the knife comes with a non-reversible pocket clip that is configured for tip-down carry only. I hadn't carried a tip-down knife for years, and a few weeks of carrying the TBFK has reminded me why. It's a potentially great knife that is severely compromised by this one issue.
    Pros:
    Great cutlery steel. Excellent overall geometry, in both blade shape and handle ergonomics. Incredible value...I know it's been said before, but I'm not aware of any other knife that is even remotely competitive with respect to materials at this price point.
    Cons:
    A little heavy for an EDC piece. The big one: a non-reversible pocket clip that only allows for tip-down carry.

    Great value folder
    August 3, 2017
    I've owned this little folder for over a year and used it as an EDC for the majority of that time, until I lost it in a tragic boating accident (overturned kayak next to shore lol). I perked up the factory edge with some sandpaper stepping up from 1k finishing with 2k grit and a good strop. Edge has held up great and hardly needed touching up. Never cut anything stupid with it, like 15 miles of manila rope, but for practical every day use it was perfect. Have taken it hiking, camping, boating, office, errans, everything. Has always been up to the tasks I asked of it, from cutting steak to making fire prep. I own a $300 knife but don't carry it out of (justified!) fear of losing it. I paid $45 for this, seeing it for $35 now I am buying a replacement. Might even buy a spare. This knife is inexpensive, but not cheaply made. Highly recommended.
    Pros:
    Easy to sharpen Lasting edge Easy to maintain Fantastic price Excellent practicality-to-price value Easy to use (one-handed open/close while in awkward situations like on a kayak) Good, generic blade profile that handles most common tasks perfectly well Never had a rust or corrosion problem despite being exposed to elements often
    Cons:
    Scales might be considered a bit slick textured, could use a little more "grippy"-ness Never really used the thumb stud, spur-assisted opening never failed on me. Vestigial feature in my opinion. Doesn't float :p Mine is sitting in the bottom of a river

    shaving sharp
    July 29, 2017
    great blade, comfortable handle. Would have gotten 5 stars except the spring on the "flipper" function is weaker than the third cup from the same teabag. Unless you do a wrist snap when you push the flipper the blade will not fully open much less lock into place.
    Pros:
    Blade steel usually only found on over $100 knives.
    Cons:
    see above

    This is a strong knife.
    July 27, 2017
    This knife was a little bigger than I expected, which works against EDC. What a knife for the price, though. This knife is so smooth, it compares well with more expensive knives. It came with a decent edge on it, ready to go to work, and held its edge while opening cardboard containers, cutting zip ties, and cutting fuel hose to length. I would still like a little less bulk, but this knife makes you enjoy using it. Three weeks in EDC, and I am happy.
    Pros:
    Appearance is good, fit and finish are really nice. A good edge from the factory with an extremely smooth action. S35VN blade is supposed to be super great steel, so far I am pleased.
    Cons:
    Size, when in my pocket.

    Great Knife for $35
    July 26, 2017
    So I got this when it was on sale for $35, it's a solid folder, smooth action(didn't flip open easily without a little wrist action, so I adjusted the pivot slightly now it's just fine), sharp out of the box(I still polished up the edge because I'm a little OCD). Finish is good for the price, obviously like you may see in some reviews there are some unfinished edges on the liners which I don't have any issue with since it doesn't change their functionality. I got the stonewash black and it looks good. I like drop point blades, so that's good for me. Slightly smaller profile than my Kershaw 1986 yet noticeably heavier, but still manages to have a tad more blade real estate. Grips are fine for what it is, not the most secure gripping scales but if you don't pull a blonde moment and limp grip it when for some reason texting while cutting you'll be fine.
    Pros:
    > Sharp out of the box. > Price... I mean $80 no thanks I'll spend $130 for a serious folder instead but for $35 hell yes this is a good deal. > Smooth action(may require a little tweaking or working in for the finger flick open). > If it's really S35VN, which I guess it'd be ill advised to sell to U.S. populace a falsely advertised blade as a U.S. company, then it's well worth the measly $35-$45 dollars.
    Cons:
    > After extended opening and closing for an hour or so(multiple times a minute during extensive use) I find the pivot screw loosens slightly and I get a slight amount of blade play until I tighten it a tiny bit. > Can adjust blade centering and liner lock depth using either side of pivot... Good short term but makes me wonder about long term reliability and future blade play. > Not a very solid detent, if not even just a friction detent(haven't taken it apart yet). I can force the blade open with a sudden up down motion(fairly forceful but I have had it open slightly in my pocket when I didn't use the clip I think I maybe have dropped a few feet to the ground from a ledge and that movement opened it slightly). You're paying mostly for the blade itself, not the construction. While it's not horrible construction and with a little more tweaking I might get it just the way I want it; It's effective and I approve of it in it's current state.

    Good knife
    July 10, 2017
    As stated in other reviews it wasn't sharp out of the box but with that said I always resharpen new knives anyways. I'm never happy with the factory' edge. It's a little tight but is loosening up with use. Good finish and attention to detail for a Chinese knife at this price point. Bottom line is it is a good EDC for work.
    Pros:
    Good all around knife
    Cons:
    Not made in the USA.

    Quality materials, excellent price.
    Pros:
    S35VN Perfect blade centering. Solid lockup. Nice G10. Ultra smooth pivot bearing. Excellent fit and finish. Least expensive S35VN with pivot bearing that you'll ever see!
    Cons:
    Not shaving sharp out of box. Liner lock acceptable but could be thicker.

    Blade steel ain't everything.
    June 22, 2017
    I was anxious to get this knife, as it looked a lot like a knife that WE knife Co. would make. Plus the blade was in the much hyped S35VN steel, which did come with a nice edge. Unfortunately upon receiving the knife, I realized the detent was so weak that it was very hard to flip without focus and a good bit of wrist action. It was easier to misfire than to get a good deployment with the flipper tab. I am an old grandpa with a large and varied wide spectrum collection of knives. I know how to work on and adjust knives and was able to adjust the pivot, bring the blade to the center and a bit of lube improved the knife somewhat. But I would not recommend this knife at this price. I almost sent it back for a refund, but didn't want to bother.
    Pros:
    Nice looks, styling and shape. Great blade steel with a razor sharp edge.
    Cons:
    Hard to deploy with flipper-weak detent.

    Good knife, could use a few refinements
    April 29, 2017
    For the price this is an awesome knife. Lock up is about %40 and is consistent. No wiggle or wobble in the blade. Deploys effortlessly with ether the studs or the flipper. Came shaving sharp. Needed cleaned badly. Also the loctite is industrial strength.
    Pros:
    Sharp out of the box Good fit. Great shape and design
    Cons:
    Liners have a lame splotchy anodizing Lots of grit that needed cleaned out of the pivot Bevel is a little un-even

    Better than I imagined.
    February 1, 2017
    This knife is very well made. Built to last with great well fitted parts. The steel is actually s35vn And not cheap fake metal. I would like it better if The pocket clip was reversible, but it is acceptable. All things said, it's a nice practical everyday knife. I put a different edge on it too see how it would take some hard work and it performs up with some benchmade knives I own. It's worth the low price I paid.

    High quality steel
    January 27, 2017
    S35VN was formulated specifically for use in knives. Highly recommended by many knife nerds. Handles are well fitted and knife deploys and licks smoothly
    Pros:
    Nothing about this knife raises eyebrows.....rock solid, no disappointments.
    Cons:
    If I had to pick out one thing to complain about is the G10 handles are a bit too smooth and could be improved with a more aggressive texturing.

    Use Caution
    December 21, 2016
    The materials and construction are well above the price-point, but the design has serious safety issues. Due to the position of the clip, the tip is point down and when clipped to the right pocket, the blade can open inward. The flipper could be inadvertently bumped hard enough to start the blade open or the opening stud could get snagged on the pocket or something inside the pocket, opening the blade while in your pocket. There is minimal tension on the blade, while allows it to pivot quickly and easily out of the handle, but makes it that much more likely to have an unexpected deployment. It would be nice to see this design altered, but with the same materials. As it is now, I can't recommend it for pocket carry, especially where it's likely to get bumped around.
