What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Tac Force TF-662 Edition

Tac Force TF-662 Assisted Opening Folding Knife (courtesy amazon.com)

One-click ordering with Amazon is like those experiments where a rat gets a line of cocaine when it hits a bar. The rat ends-up tap dancing on the damn thing, long after the money’s run out. So there I was, looking at blades for my personal collection editorial coverage for The Truth About Knives when I came upon this little beauty. Not only is the 1911-shaped Tac Force TF-662 perfect for airplane journeys (YMMV) but it’s also an assisted folding knife. Which makes it fast opening and ridiculous. Still, the TAC Force TF-662 was $18.41 (the year President William Henry Harrison prattled on and on at his inauguration, caught a cold and died after one month in office). The Speedster Series variant is now $7.08. Such a deal! And that skeletonized trigger? Schwing!

    Nothing like slicing off your trigger finger to curb this gun violence epidemic.

        I second that. You need to step away from the computer for a little while RF.

    Mexican nail trimmer?

      If you Mexican carry that, it wont be your nails getting trimmed!

    So basically it’s a handgun with a bayonet, except the handgun isn’t really a handgun, and a bayonet on a handgun is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

    How quickly did they sell out?

      What if I were to tell you I saw this weekend at my local gun show a Zombie green bayonet for pistols. My nephew tried it on his 1911, I laughed so hard I almost peed on myself. Like, really what is it with the idea of a bayonet for a pistol, better yet how do you now fit it in your holster? My nephew did not buy it.

        “My nephew”…….
        Now That is making me laugh even more!!!

        I’ve got an almost-functional flintlock pistol with a folding bayonet. Looks awesome, but the flintlock is crap materials and crap geometry and would need major rework to become functional. But the bayonet is functional other than having dulled edges, which is fine with me.

  5. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Weelll… I can see a bayonet on a handgun.

    I cannot, however, see a use for this thing. Thanks for playing; go home now.

    Some things are just too stupid to comment on.

    I had the TacForce Speedster. Saw it at a gunshow for $10, and figured what the hell. For the price, you get what you pay for. Blade loosened up after a couple of months of habitually flicking the assisted opening blade, the “glass breaker” and “seatbelt cutter” were of less than stellar quality… But it worked well for light duty, and for $10 scratched my assisted opening itch until I broke down and bought a quality blade.

    I saw these novelty 1911 knives, and even some AR-15 ones from TacForce. For what they are, the price is right and you get a cool conversation piece if nothing else. If you’re looking for a work knife or SD knife I would look elsewhere

    cigar cutter.

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      Xikar has that covered already. I keep hose little scissors and stogie tools on my key chain. It’s still cutting cigar ends off like a champ after nearly ten years. GET ONE.

  9. avatar Sam Wright says:

    Man, if they could just make it a cigarette lighter too, I would be sold. It needs a safety though.

  10. avatar Ron Burgundy says:

    I like the Wayne’s World reference!

    By the way, I see the slide comes ribbed, for her pleasure. Ewwwww!

  11. avatar SightPicture says:

    Don’t want one, at least until they make the trigger release the blade

  12. avatar 16V says:

    You guys missed out. Back in the 80s, when middle school and HS was far more sane, kids would have been carrying these by the dozen.

    Talk about dorky highschool cool.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      In 1970 you could walk across the studen parking lot at the local high school and see pickups with racked long guns in the window.

  13. avatar Ensitue says:

    Too many knife reviews to continue to call this place a gun review site

  14. avatar SD3 says:

    Am I the only guy in the world who doesn’t have disposable income to waste on stupid, useless crap like this?

    Life is hard enough the way it is.

    I wish all presidents would follow Harrison’s example.
