Glock is a company that needs little introducing. An Austrian company, they've been making their popular model of handguns since the 1980s and everyone from US Police to the Swedish Army (and now British Army) have been using some form of them. Glock's idea of combining strong synthetic polymers with lightweight metals don't just extend to their Pistols and they've bought out several tools in the same style.

The Glock Knives are a great example of not changing a concept that isn't broken. The Field Knife 78 has a straight blade (plain) but also available with a Saw Blade (Survival Knife 81) and in either Tan or Black, the Glock series of Knives are fixed blade with full tang down to the handle. Keeping with the polymer tradition, the handles are ridged plastic that give a nice grip on the contours even when your hands get a little damp. The design is pretty faultless for a military blade and we have the Austrian Rangers to thank for that as they've obviously given plenty of thought into the design and worked closely with Glock to give us a great product.

Let's look at the features of the Glock Field Knife 78:

  • The Glock Field Knife 78 is perfectly balanced for throwing (though it's a nice knife, you might not get it back)
  • The cross bar protects the hand against injuries and can be used as thumb rest and as a bottle opener (an important feature in any knife!)
  • In addition to the above, Glock knives are sturdy enough to break windows or ammuntion boxes, requirements by the Armed Forces among many others.
  • Material know-how from the pistol development guarantees durability and reliability.
  • WEIGHT: 206 g / 7.27 oz
  • GRIP: Polymer (Available in Black or Olive)
  • BLADE: Spring steel HRC55, phosphate-treated

Personal Review by Drew @ UkmcPro

I've always appreciated a good knife (in a non-serial killer type of way) and it didn't take me long to note the Glock Knives as exceptional bits of kit. The steel keeps its edge nicely after long use and sharpens with little effort, the handle has a nice weight to it and as mentioned is easy enough to grip with cold or clammy hands. The only real downside is one of personal opinion, highly functional survival knives usually have little in the way of aesthetic value and the Glock knife probably won't win any beauty contests, but with a good blade and a good handle who needs to be pretty?  The knife edge on the Glock Field Knife 78 is perfect for stripping bark and ropes. The Sheath is the same polymer material that made Glock famous and has a nice locking system to secure the knife in place, not to mention a belt loop that should fit a 6 inch belt and is pretty much 100% secure.

Final Thoughts on the Glock Field Knife 78:

If you're looking for a good functional field knife that requires little upkeep, the Glock knives are perfect. The simple and affordable Gerber Ceramic Knife Sharpener is ideal for keeping the edge on the Glock Knife and as with any good bit of kit, if you take care of it then it'll take care of you in turn.
