5.11 ® EDC K-USB Flashlight and EDT Pry
When it comes to EDC, knives embody “everyday” more than any other tool. The minimalist Base
1SF knife is a quick-access keychain edged tool. It features a 1.5-inch sheepsfoot blade constructed
from 8CR13MOV stainless steel. With a one-handed thumb stud opening and frame lock, it can

5.11 ® GTI Capsule
5.11 ® is also thrilled to announce new products in collaboration with special forces veteran and
leader in the tactical cutlery industry, Justin Gingrich, who pioneered the modern tactical tomahawk
and has developed some of the most sought-after tactical knife and tomahawk designs on the
Gingrich teamed with 5.11 ® to design the CFA Peacemaker with a heat-treated 4” steel blade and
pick head with full-tang steel construction that’s perfect for heavy field use. Best of all, the CFA
swings with the accuracy and feel of a hammer. Its skeletonized frame reduces the weight (1 lb. 12.2
oz), which helps make short work of large tasks. A textured handle with removable scales, finished
with a tactical pummel tip, provides a sure grip in wet and freezing conditions and it includes a
protective sheath with four position belt/MOLLE clip ($140.00).
Gingrich also led the design of the CFK 7 Peacemaker ($120.00). Thanks to the heat-treated steel
blade and full-tang steel construction, the CFK 7 Peacemaker can handle tough jobs that lesser
knives can’t touch. Blade perforations reduce weight to help make short work of cutting, batoning,
and carving. The textured handle with removable scales, finished with a tactical pummel tip, provides
a sure grip in wet and freezing conditions and it includes a protective sheath with updated two
position 3-inch belt/MOLLE clips.
“The new products in 5.11’s collection this summer offer our end-users with an ultimate sense of
preparedness,” said 5.11’s Chief Marketing Officer, Debra Radcliff. “Summer is about being outdoors
and active – from 5.11’s loadbearing items to our footwear and EDC gear, each of these categories
offer our customers the purpose-built gear they need to feel ready for the summer months ahead.”
