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.

Specifications:

  • S35VN Blade Steel
  • Low Profile Pocket Clip

    Great Knife at very good price!
    Overall, this is a very good knife at a great price. It has a really good blade that should hold it's edge well. It is slightly heavier that my current EDC and I don't need the thumb stud. It came with a very sharp edge that would cut very thin strips of paper. I recommend it if you don't mind a slightly heavy knife.
    Pros1. Great blade steel S35VN 2. Scales are G-10 3. Liner lock 4. Flipper 5. Blade centered 6. Knife fits my hand perfectly 7. Optional Satin Blade or Black Stone Wash Blade
    Cons1. Thumb stud not needed (personal preference) 2. Slightly heavy (again, personal preference) 3. No option for pocket clip location

    Really nice knife
    What an awesome knife for the money. Very comfortable in hand with great blade steel. S35VN on a $35 knife. Whats not to like. The edge did need some attention and the pocket clip takes some getting used to but I think those are minor things. Overall I like more than I dislike. Buy one and try it for yourself.

    Made in China
    Excellent knife. I bought three because of the quality of the knife. However, made in China. Can I trust that the blade is made from s35vn? If it is made of S35VN it’s the best knife ever and I recommend it.
    ProsThe blade is S35VN
    ConsMade in China and can I trust them?

    So far it IS TBFK out there
    LAPG was great. Early delivery. No issues. Sharp out of the box with no flaws. I haven’t used the knife yet, but at $35 it will get a lot of use. It appears to be a basic knife design - no frills which is good. And it’s in s35vn.
    ProsIt’s an inexpensive daily user in s35vn
    ConsNone so that I can detect

    sharp knife but design flaws
    Horrible design on the clip. Can't change the carry position. The grips have no texture (pretty much smooth). The knife deployment is smooth. The knife is sharp. The price is good.

    Great knife!
    I just got this knife and really like it! I love the steel, the g10 scales, and the flipper. It's an incredible value. I will say though, that the thumb studs were immediately annoying, and caused the blade to open as I tried slide the knife into my pocket on only the second time, which resulted in the blade cutting right through my pants. So I cut the thumb studs off and now it's great! No more accidental opening. The only other thing I could ask for would be a back insert to protect the blade when folded.
    ProsAwesome price, great steel, nice handle/ scales, great speed!
    ConsThumb studs! Get rid of the thumb studs. And tape the bottom of the grip instead of the flare.

    Close to good
    I will admit the blade steel and quality of build on this knife are good, but it just feels a little awkward in the hand. It doesn't ride well in the pocket either- its as though they could have sanded quite a bit of material off for a more streamlined fit. Instead the handle itself feels slim in the middle and fat on the ends, making for a bulky fit in the pocket. But for $35, it's still a good deal although I would've liked to see assisted open as well...
    ProsGood steel Solid construction
    ConsClunky design No assisted open

    Can't beat the price
    Pros: S35vn for $35!!! Curved milled g10 Heafty weight Cons: steel(heavy) liners, Tip down only carry!!! Flipper stud that I don't care for and gets caught on my pants. You won't find S35vn for under $100 these days and it is truly great to work with, I'm considering ordering a bunch of these and then tapping the liner and g10 for a tip up carry, that was the only downfall.

    Super Knife Deal
    This would be one hell of a knife deal at $80, but at $35 it's super. You can't find a knife with this great steel anywhere near this price. It opens with just a slight flick of the wrist and is glass smooth. I prefer that it is not spring assisted. I am a professional knife sharpener and when I sharpened and honed this knife it got scary sharp. It was shaving sharp out of the box but I just had to put my magic on it.
    ProsS35VN steel G10 scales Very tight, no wobble blade when opened.
    ConsBlade stud is not removable Pant clip is not reversible

    Great knife at a great price. Solid blade to keeps its edge. Highly recommend if you are looking for a quality knife for every day use.

    Best for the money
    I haven't found anything comparable for such a low cost. The G10 handle is nice, the blade comes fairly sharp (though not razor), and the action on both the bearing and liner lock is smooth and solid. Knives at lower price points tend to skimp in the lock, so I am curious to see how it holds up. I will post again when I put this thing to the stone to get a really fine edge on it and we will see how well it takes an edge.
    ProsObviously cost Great action Nice feel and weight Deep carry clip is nice Flipper works well
    ConsConcerned about longevity I would love to see this with an assisted open. I would pay another $15 for that feature

    Great knife
    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!

    Exceeded my expectations...
    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.
    ProsGreat 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.
    ConsA little heavy for an EDC piece. The big one: a non-reversible pocket clip that only allows for tip-down carry.

    Great value folder
    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.
    ProsEasy 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
    ConsScales 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

    Is it possible to produce the knife with holes drilled for tip up right & left carry? These knife is great but I never carry it because the clip is in the terrible position of only tip down. I bet you would see significantly more knife people buying it if it were tip up. Please change it so I can buy another.

    What angle is the blade sharpened?
    5 Answers
    One primary taper of about 22 degrees and came very sharp. I reprofiled mine for 18/22 degrees to take advantage of the steel and the preset angles on my field sharpener. The steel is as hard as expected and took a nice polished edge to about 2000 grit and has held it for a while. I think you have to spend $200+ to get a better folder
    Todd
    on November 23, 2016

    That depends largely on personal preference and how you intend to use the knife. I sharpen my EDC knives at a 23 degree angle because they will hold the edge longer at that angle. If you want it to be the absolute sharpest possible - and you are willing to sharpen it more often - you could go as low as 17 degrees. That is where I sharpen my kitchen knives because I want an extremely sharp blade and I have a really nice set of Japanese whetstones that go up to 3000 grit.

    I do not know the angle on the sharpened edge. I will tell you that this this the nicest folding knife that I own. The knives I bought in the $25 range are not near the quality of this knife.

    I have no idea the exact angle. What I can say is I've been a butcher for nearly fourty years . The blade comes very sharp and holds its edge. The blade is very serviceable and shapens easily on a good steel. I bought this knife for under $40 and couldn't be more pleased. It's a great knife at a better price.

    Carried the knife for two days. Left side front pocket. Caught it on seat belt exiting vehicle. Clip sprung. Knife has been sitting on my workbench for over a month. Clip has never been a problem with Benchmade, SpyderCo, or CRKT when caught the same way. The liner lock is less robust than expected. Like the blade. It is excellent. Scales are fine, too. Not currently satisfied with this purchase. Regards, Frank

    Can you please include a picture of how thick the TBFK is? The profile looks good, but it is hard to tell if this is a front pocket only knife, or if it could fit in a back pocket comfortably.
    1 Answers
    At it's widest point it is 3/4 of an inch and it is about 4.5 inches long. I do not see any reason why it would not fit in a back pocket.
