The Titan Bravo double action OTF (out the front) knife is perfect for those who want to carry a full-size knife without any extra bulk. The Titan is nearly a half an inch smaller than our RCT-1 Raven OTF Knife, but make no mistake the Titan is a true workhorse and a favorite of many.
Like all RavenCrest Tactical knives, the Titan Bravo is built for hard use. Each Titan comes standard with a 3.5-inch 440c blade that is meticulously hand sharpened to a razor's edge ready to cut right out of the box. The smooth ergonomic handles on the Titan are made of high-quality Zinc Alloy that is individually hand coated with Cerakote which gives them maximum hardness and corrosion resistance. The button placement along the spine of the handle allows for lighting fast ambidextrous openings right from the operators pocket. The Titan Bravo also allows for right and left-hand users to pocket carry with its stainless steel reversible pocket clip. If that wasn’t enough the Titan Bravo OTF knife also comes equipped with a “battle tested” glass breaker pommel.
The inner workings of the Titan Bravo don’t disappoint. “Under the hood” you will find all stainless steel precision parts and our proprietary coated high-performance spring. The Titan comes with our famous lifetime warranty giving you confidence and peace of mind.
All RavenCrest Tactical OTF knives are extremely safe to operate and use. RavenCrest Tactical OTF knives come with a built-in safety that will not allow the blade to fully deploy if anything is obstructing its path. Once in “safety mode” the blade will need to be reset by pulling the blade all the way into its locking position making it fully functional again.
The Titan Bravo OTF Knife is available for full customization.
