Sometimes you just need a knife you can beat down, a knife you don’t have to worry about babying, a knife that’s simultaneously dependable and disposable.

That knife is the Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops.

This liner locking folder is part of Smith & Wesson’s Extreme Ops series of well-built yet inexpensive EDC knives. This model has a 3.22-inch drop-point blade made from 7Cr17MoV high carbon stainless steel. It’s an alloy that’s easy to sharpen when it becomes dull.

The blade opens easily via dual thumb studs and locks into place with a liner lock.

Although the handle is made from aluminum, there is more than enough texture to keep the knife in your hand, regardless of the conditions.

Cutouts all along with the silver handle not only reduce the overall weight of the knife to a comfortable 1.8 ounces but also provide additional security when holding the knife.

At the price point, this Smith & Wesson is the perfect beater knife for any task.
