Boot Knives

Are you looking for a knife small enough to fit your pockets or, in this case, boots? You do not need to look any further than this page then, as we have a large selection of products. Boot knives come in different shapes and design, yet all of them fulfill multiple roles, depending on the need. No matter the intended use, boot knives are multifunctional in every sense of the word.


Boot knives are of small size typically as to fit your boots while walking. However, many would typically wear these on belts or pant legs, due to safety reasons. Boot knives are similar to daggers in terms of length, ranging between 3 and 5 inches. They are also popularly called gambler's dagger due to their notorious history around the globe.

We would always advise for these types of blades to be carried around the belt, as to avoid unnecessary injuries. Blades can come in quite sharp, as their application is vast.

Brief History

Boot knives have a long military history around the world. It is unclear when and where did these blades appear first. However, their primary use lies in the self-defense and open combat. Unlike daggers, boot knives almost never head ceremonial importance and were mostly kept hidden from the view. Their sizes and design rarely changed during history, as their functions were quite limited in scope.

In the U.S., the term “gambler’s knives” became quite popular in the “Wild West” era. The reason is that gamblers hidden them in boots in case their card partners were never trustworthy enough. Hence the popular nickname for boot knives.

Use Case

Some might say that boot knives would serve only for a self-defense, what with many other blades in the market. However, the convenience of their size allows users to carry them around for a variety of reasons. You can use them in your construction works, home repairs or even as a trophy in your house.

However, their primary function is around the home for smaller works, such as material cutting. Self-defense is practically one of the major use cases but it sure is not the only one.
