PEOPLE ARE ASKING

What is a Button Lock?

A button lock is a push button allowing the blade to lock in place and not move until the button is pressed again. Upon pressing the button, the lock disengages allowing for blade deployment.

Are Button Lock knives safe?

A button lock is usually considered better and stronger than a liner lock. Additionally, it does score extra safety points for never requiring you to put your hand in the blade’s path as it closes.

Why Do You Add Titanium Coating?

Our titanium coating process increases the corrosion resistance of our blades while at the same time providing the blade with a deep matte texture.

Does the blade arrive sharpened?

Yes, all Tekto knives are sharpened before they leave our facilities. However, all blades lose their edge after prolonged use and must be eventually resharpened.

My honest F3 review..

This is a second knife I got from Tekto. I bought the first one, this one I received as a gift. The F3 is a much larger knife than the other folders put out by Tekto. The blade is much bigger and you feel like it can take a punishing. The scales are G10 and are pretty comfortable, they fit well into my hand. I have no use the lanyard hole, thats not for me. The coolest thing about the F3 is the button lock, its addicting. Very smooth opening and closing, probably due to the ceramic ball bearings. I have not used the flipper much as I use the button lock, but they both work. Great knife, I recommend it.

Great Knife!

The Tekto F3 Charlie folding knife impresses with its striking black tactical design, enhanced by the distinctive white skull logo, adding a bold touch to its appearance. This knife isn't just about looks, though; it combines form with function seamlessly. Its D2 blade is incredibly sharp and durable, perfect for a variety of tasks. The ergonomic handle ensures a secure grip, and the knife's smooth opening mechanism is reliable and easy to use with one hand. It's lightweight and features a rock-solid pocket clip, making it convenient and discreet to carry. If you prefer however, you can also use the sheath it comes with! Overall, the F3 Charlie offers exceptional quality and versatility, making it an excellent choice for anyone needing a reliable folding knife. Also check my video. First video I ever made for a knife :-)

F3 Charlie Gets It Done!

I first saw the F3 Charlie in a feature article and went to the Tekto website to find out more about it. I like the company back story, so I made the decision to order the F3 Charlie! I have read all the specs and the design story and when I received it, it truly exceeded my expectations! It came razor sharp and much more lightweight than my Benchmade I have been carrying for the last two years. I was surprised by the size of the blade and thoughtfulness of design. It went right into my pocket as soon as I got it out of the box and will be there for a long time. It is a tool that can be counted on to get any job done you need! The price is right and the quality is excellent! I highly recommend this model, even for people with larger hands!

Best EDC to date

Not only is this F3 Charlie aesthetically pleasing, it has great action and just feels amazing in the hand. The weight of the knife is absolutely perfect. I own several reputable brand knives, however, those are now in the knife roll. The F3 Charlie will now be my number one EDC and I look forward to what Tekto has to offer in the future. When they say they design "purpose-built knives", they mean it.

Well done and thank you.

Solid EDC

The F3 is a solid easy to open knife with a solid locking mechanism , closing the knife is very simple depressing the lock button it immediately releases the blade . The blade is very sharp care should be taken when closing the knife.
