Welcome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we spotlight the best discounts and deals on tactical gear, outdoor equipment, and everything in between.

As you know, we at Task & Purpose are here to be a supportive force for our fellow knife addicts. As with a stock portfolio, your knife collection should be diversified to ensure that you remain prepared for a variety of unforeseen economic and slicing conditions. That means acquiring knives across the price spectrum — and today, we’re taking a look at some bear-market opportunities to build a durable collection of your own.

On the affordable side of things, Ontario Knife Company is a regular in Task & Purpose gear guides simply because the company’s solid, reliable blades fit an entry-level budget and far outperform the kind of crap you’ll find at the base exchange. The RAT II is one of our go-to folders, and right now it’s almost half price on Amazon. If you’re looking to indulge your taste for the finer things, you can get the job done at a hefty discount with the Cold Steel AD-10 and Recon 1 as well.

All three of these knives are great additions to your collection, and they’re all marked down between 40 and 50 percent on Amazon right now. Deals this good don’t come around every day, so picking one up now would be a smart move – not that we’re giving financial advice.

These prices were valid at press time, but prices can change and deals do expire.
