- For Size Reference
The GTX-025 from Guardian Tactical is their most compact, user-friendly build. You'll be hard-pressed to find a double-action OTF automatic knife with better action anywhere. Though small, it's not tiny, fitting larger and smaller hands comfortably. All of its components are made in the USA, and it includes a pocket clip to keep it secure and accessible by your side. Don't sleep on this excellent design!
Out the front automatic knives are as fun to fidget with as they are practical to use. One perk of OTFs is you can use them with one hand. If that appeals to you, make sure to browse our enormous selection!
Smooth open and closing. Razor sharp blade. I own a 040- ELITE (2)- a 035. And now the GTX-025. All purchased from BHQ. They are all very smooth. The 025 is nice to fidget with. All of my GT. OTF knifes have slight blade wobble. Not excessive though. (All of my OTFs have some blade play. Some more, some less.). But I believe it’s the nature of construction. If you want something with a very tight no wobble blade I would recommend the BM Infidel. This is in keeping the same price range. Guardian Tactical OTFs are so well built. I now own five. I hope this helps. Jef C.
This is my first time actually owning a Guardian Tactical. This little OTF is just too cool. It's super smooth to deploy and to close, very very fun to fidget with. The grinds were very even on either side and the factory edge was shaving sharp out of the box, I was impressed. It carries quite light and the pocket clip is secure in short, pants, etc. The two tone finish is just gorgeous. My one gripe, even though this is a hollow grind, I feel as though the stock thickness would be better around 0.1" or 0.11" for better cutting ability, all in all, I'm very impressed!
