Outland’s Kryptos knives were developed in cooperation with America’s Special Operations Forces for optimum concealed carry, swift and natural draw, and reliable retention. The prominent pinky hook locates your hand and gives a secure location for a quick draw, while the heel on the handle gives a solid base for assisted thrusting. The G10 handles are secure even when wet, and the handles have jimping for additional bite.

Kryptos is available in both single and double-edged versions. Know your local laws and choose the version that is legal for you to own and carry. An optional aluminum trainer is available that has blunted edges for safe training. The trainer handle geometry and sheath draw match the live knife.

  • Full tang CPM 3V steel construction
  • Single or double-edged versions
  • 3.7 inch primary cutting edge
  • G10 handle grips
  • Deep finger choil and aggressive jimping for a secure grip
  • Pinky hook allows for fast, sightless grip acquisition and sheath draw

Two sheaths are available for the Kryptos knives:

The Scout Sheath uses two adjustable-length straps for horizontal carry on belts that range in width from 1.5″ to 2″. The Scout Sheath is ambidextrous for right or left-handed draw and can be positioned anywhere around the belt.

The Covert Sheath is a slim sheath with mounting points for attaching a variety of accessories and for endless customization and integration options. The holes on both sides are in a 1/2″ grid, making the sheath compatible with accessories such as Blade-Tech’s Small TEK-LOK™, Large TEK-LOK™or MOLLE-LOK™ for mounting to a belt or PALS gear. For simple in waistband carry, we offer Pitbull Tactical’s LOCKJAW IWB Clip.

    An outstanding blade in design, function and execution. Purpose-driven and built like swiss watch. Well worth the wait ( I ordered for the original K2 production run). Frankly, I would have paid more.

    Absolutely love the blade. I got the single-edged with grey coating, and it came in a padded zippered case with the Outland logo. The attention to detail is outstanding. I would echo the previous review. I would have paid more. Pick one up. You won’t be disappointed.

    Fantastic knife! Workmanship is amazing and quality outstanding. Very unique design that feels great in your hand. Also really like the sheath. Feel like I got a steal at $195. I look forward to purchasing more as new designs are introduced!

    I am really glad I came across this knife. It is a purpose built tool that hopefully will never be needed. It replaced my Strider DB in 3v as my concealed fixed blade. The design of the grip allows for superb ergonomics and manipulations allowing for variable holds and styles. The precision this blade affords you is a huge advantage in a self defense situation. The sheath(s) are good to go from day one, no need to have a custom one made. The blade steel is perfect for the intended use of this knife. There is really nothing about the K2 that I do not like. The price is fantastic as well. I got the single edge to ensure I had the best chance of being able to legally carry it depending on where I am as I travel a lot. My search for the perfect urban self defense fixed blade is finally over. The Kryptos K2 is form meets function perfected.
