It brings my heart joy to see the rise in automatic knives. Major companies like Hogue are producing a wide variety of Auto Knives, the Infidel by Benchmade is a household name if you like knives, and we are seeing changes to knife legislation throughout the USA. It’s not always the big names who create the best knives. For example, you may have never heard of Conquest Tactical and the Fury OTF. If you have an interest in OTFs and automatic knives then it’s a name you may want to learn. The Fury is a full-sized automatic knifedesigned for one simple thing.

The Conquest Tactical Fury - It's for stabbing people

It’s for stabbing people. It’s for defensive use. It fills the realm of a concealed carry weapon that doesn’t fire a projectile. People seem to get uncomfortable when you say that first sentence, but it’s true. This is a defensive knife, made to stick people who need to be stuck. It’s really no different from a Ruger LCP or a J Frame revolver; its made for defensive purposes.

This isn’t a knife designed for cutting rope, or prying, or whittling sticks. If you are planning to carry the Conquest Tactical Fury I’d advise also carrying a traditional working knife as well for those EDC knife tasks.

How the Conquest Tactical Fury Functions

The Conquest Tactical utilizes a simple button that is pushed upwards to present the blade and pressed downwards to conceal it again. This means the knife can be both opened and closed with one hand in about half a second. The knives ‘trigger’ is heavy, but not heavy enough to tire the hand. It’s not going to accidentally go off in your pocket either. There is a slight take up in the trigger, and you reach a wall, pressing just a bit more sends the blade out with significant force.

Conquest Tactical advises the owner to lubricate the blade with lighter fuel, the same kind used for Zippos. Pour some in, dump it out and let it dry. That’s the only advised lubrication, and should be done every 200 opens. The Fury uses a locking mechanism made from D2 steel for heavy and rough stabbing. It’s far from fragile and truly designed for fighting.

Designed For War

The Fury is made from 154 Cm steel, a robust and multi-purpose steel. It can be sharpened and honed to a razor’s edge, holds a solid edge and is highly corrosion resistant. The blade ends in a tanto designed tip, which is, of course, perfect for stabbing. A tanto is really designed to pierce armor which may be overkill, but if you have to go through leather, winter layers or other thicker clothing options, it’s what you want. It’s better to have and not need, then need and not have.
