When your are out in the backwoods two of the most important pieces of gear are a sharp knife and a powerful light. Recognizing the need for these essentail tools, COAST Products created a stand-alone tool that combines both a high quality knife with a quality, high-output light.
COAST has combined its 96 years of knife making with their industry leading flashlight technology to introduce the brand new LK375 Light Knife. For maximum versatility in one tool, this new knife is ideal for those who work, adventure, trek or engage in all-terrain or jobsite situations.
The LK375 is the first knife that includes a real, usable LED flashlight rated by the ANSI FL1 standard to 110 lumens. Powered by a single AAA battery (not button cells), the LX375 is truly a two in one tool, a high quality flashlight with a top-notch optic, the COAST Universal Spot Beam, and a one handed opening, partially serrated knife. The light will project a beam for 53 meters and will run for one hour and 30 minutes on high and over four hours on low. The LK375 is also waterproof rated to IPX7.
The LK375’s on and off button controls the on/off function and is easy and comfortable to reach with a thumb or one finger of the hand the knife is being held in. The switch function stays on momentarily and has low and high selection levels.
The Light Knife features a heavy duty, drop point blade, an oval cut-out in the blade for fast, easy opening and a liner lock that automatically locks the blade in the open position. The blade has a partially serrated edge with glass bead finish that resists corrosion. It is 3.75 inches (9.5 cm) long, when closed, and 8.5 inches long (21.5 cm) when open, weighs 5.30 ounces and has a Polycarbonate handle housed in a stainless steel frame. The Light Knife has a pocket clip for convenient carry and the handle has thumb notching for added versatility and control. Resilient in all-environments and temperatures, the LK375 blade is made of high-quality 7Cr17stainless steel, making it the ideal knife for an indoor or outdoor jobsite.
