Yes.  Because The HIT Dagger Has All of the Features You Need in a Boot Knife

Boot and neck knives are popular with those wanting an easily concealed weapon ready in a moment. They date pretty far back; from Civil War soldiers, to outdoorsmen, to gangsters. Whether you need something to make you feel safe walking downtown, or a last ditch defense against a bear attack, having the DPx HIT Dagger at the ready is a great idea. Why? Because it has all of the classic attributes sought after in a boot knife, with a few modern touches.

Experienced boot knife users opt for the following features:

  • conceal-ability
  • light weight
  • quality blade steel that holds an edge
  • ergonomic handle, for confident grip
  • stabby blade design

The DPx HIT Dagger checks all of the boxes when it comes to having the features that make a good neck or boot knife.

It is a compact, lightweight push dagger made in Italy by LionSTEEL and comes with a black leather sheath and adjustable chord/lanyard. You can use the lanyard and eyelets to secure the sheath to a boot or inside a concealed area of your choice. The easy to use sheath simply snaps open and closed, while the flat surface sits nicely and does not rub.
