PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--We’ve all been in this situation: a sharp knife in one hand and a flashlight in the other, trying to make a decent cut, one-handed, in a dark environment.
For safety, accuracy and peace of mind, customers can now purchase a single tool that combines a high quality knife with a powerful, high-output light. COAST Products has combined its 96 years of knife making with their industry leading flashlight technology to introduce the 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 job site situations.
Providing effortless performance, COAST’s new Light Knife 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 expensive, hard-to-find button cells), the Light Knife is truly a two-in-one tool – a high quality flashlight with an advanced optic with COAST’S Universal Spot Beam. It can be opened with one hand. The light projects a beam for 174 feet (53 meters) and will operate for one hour and 30 minutes on high, and over four hours on low. The Light Knife is also waterproof, rated to IPX7, and is able to withstand total water immersion for up to 30 minutes.
The Light Knife provides exceptional light when working in a challenging, darkened area, while on night patrol or when hunting, trekking through base camp, or in any low light or dark conditions. The Light Knife’s on and off button is easy and comfortable to reach with a thumb or one finger. The switch function lets users toggle between low and high power levels.
The Light Knife features a heavy duty, drop point blade, an oval blade cut-out for fast, easy opening and a liner lock that automatically locks the blade in the open position. The blade is made of high quality 7Cr17 stainless steel and has a partially serrated edge with glass bead finish that resists corrosion.
The COAST Light Knife meets ANSI specifications and it is backed by a lifetime warranty.
