Smith & Wesson H.R.T. Coated Boot Knife with Leather Sheath
Your boots are made for more than walkin' -- but that's our little secret.
Standing for Hostage Rescue Team, the Smith & Wesson H.R.T. Tactical boot knife is the perfect choice for a last-ditch weapon when things get rough.
The double-edged 4.74-inch fixed blade made of 420HC stainless steel is sturdy enough to last through even the harshest conditions, while the black Teflon coating removes the reflective qualities of the steel and ensures it won't get stuck on its way out.
The handle is not only designed to feel comfortable and natural in the hand but it also offers a superior grip. Even in different conditions, you'll feel confident that the knife will stay firmly within your grasp. A crossguard prevents your hand from sliding up onto the blade when you're using it.
A pocket clip attached to the back of the sheath offers up a range of options for how and where it can be carried.
If police officers and military personnel can count on this knife's added security while working in dicey situations, so can you.
This item also available with individual name stamping. Please search for catalog number 374971 to view.

I gave this knife a 5 star rating because of the quality in ptice range. The product was good and the sheath for the price great.
It's lightweight and very well finished. The feeling of security that it conveys to its carrier is invaluable.
Exactly as described and ordered. I bought 2 as one was for a gift. I had already given my wife one for home protection. Sharp out of the box, timely delivery & great quality. This is just what I wanted - the size/comfort is perfect.
I absolutely love this knife. The double edge blade came sharp right out of the box, and fits perfectly into my boot. Its very well constructed and has a great weight to it, I never leave home without it. I would definitely recommend this knife to friends and family. I will be making more purchases from here. The service was great and the knife came in 2 days.
Extremely sharp! Nice compact knife.
I bought this knife as a gift and she loved it!! It's a great quality product at a very reasonable price. I'm consideribg buying another one for myself.
My knife shipped in a very timely manner, and upon arrival I was very impressed with the quality, especially considering the price. The blade was very sharp, and has held up very well for me over the past couple months. Everything is made very well, and I am very satisfied. I will definitely be coming back to Knife-Depot in the future.
Very sharp, the right size! I really like it!
This is a wonderful little knife. Perfect length for my boot, remarkably durable, and retains it's sharpness well.
I bought this knife about 1 month ago and have had no problems. It is sturdy and arrived sharp. The sheath is easy to open and access the knife when attached to my boot.
I have one of these from 7 years ago this newer model has a much wider blade and therefore unfortunately weaker and due to its blade being thinned out more than my older one its more prone to breaking. I don't understand why these changes were made by Taylor Brands LLC. It's still good but a big difference when I compared the two.
I am a firefighter paramedic and this is my go to fixed blade. I have three HRT's, one for each type of gear I wear. I keep the main one on my 5:11 boots and have used it to cut and pry. It has been used abused and put up wet. After 3 years of use it may be a little beat up, but I wouldn't trade it for a different one. If you are looking for a top quality fixed blade without dropping triple digit numbers, I recommend this one!
Excellent knife in every way just what I wanted
This knife is exactly what I ordered: solid, dependable, and, like everything else by S&W, built to last. It arrived very quickly, and was very sharp on both sides straight out of the box. It never falls out of my boot, it is easy to put on or take out, and is comfortable and discreet. An added bonus: though it is not meant for throwing, it throws quite nicely, sticking nine out of ten times. I heartily recommend this product.
Awesome knife have nothing but good things to say about everything I have bought from Knife Depot.
Absolutely LOVE this knife!
Excellent knife, especially for the price! I wear it everyday on duty.
You really can't beat it for the price. The knife fit nice inside a pair of 9' jungle boots. If your looking for a nice back up knife and don't want to spend alot, this knife will serve it's purpose.
I'm in the outdoors all the time. Anytime you need a Knife,this Knife is ready. Very strong and holds it's edge very well. Get one for your friend,they will thank you.
Comfortable to carry. Received many compliments on it from friends. Very concealable
Great knife for the money. Light weight, but holds an edge. Fits good inside the boot.
Excellent knife. Fully meets my expectations. Knife Depot service excellent! Continue to increase my collection with you. They do their job very well.
The knife is great on the boot. The blade seems to be of good quality and very sturdy. Smith and Wesson is coming a long way with knives.
Great knife, very sturdy the only complaint I have is it was not very sharp out of the box.
This is a great knife. It is very sharp, balanced, and light. It looks great and has a good scabbard. Nice knife.
This is my first boot knife. I am extremely happy with it!! It is so comfortable to wear. (The sheath clip goes on the outside of your boot.) After less than a week, I had to reach down and feel my leg to be sure it was still there... it was. It is very sharp, has a good grip/feel, and a wonderful and crisp sound when thrown into a stump. Very easy to handle. I am happy with the sheath too. It still holds the knife in when mounted upside down on the shoulder of a pack. I definitely suggest it for those looking for a new boot knife, either for collection or security.
This is a must have for knives. I love it.
It is a great knife, use it for almost anything and it keeps a good sharp edge.
Great knife, everything I expected, thank you.
Very well made!
Excellent quality and excellent value. Highly recommend.
Very nice, well made and nice to handle. If the boot clip could be placed a little high for me then it would be a more comfortable fit.
An excellent knife and great value for money. Fast and courteous service.
It has excellent conceal ability, nice sharp blade, and the comfortable rubber handle doesn't rub or scratch my leg. You can't beat it for the price! What else would u expect from S&W?
This is a great knife, good materials, and good construction. It's as well-made as knives costing much more.
The knife is of good quality! I would recommend it to anybody interested in a boot knife!
This is a nice knife! The delivery was excellent too!
Nice Quality. A good purchase.
The knife was bought with self defense in mind for a tactical application. The knife is sturdy and comfortable to wear. It is a definite asset for duty in Afghanistan.
I feel the knife is a very good deal for the price and the quality! I would recommend this knife to anyone who wants a quality knife at a very good price!
This is a great knife and sheath and I highly recommend it!
My son loves it! It was exactly as described, and even surprised me with the quality of it:)
Everything was as described great in the product description. Great knife!
Lot of bang for the buck here. Spear point; double edge; non-slip handle; sheath has snap-strap for retention and strong metal clip to hold it in place!
It is just wanted I wanted!
The Knife exceeded my expectations!
It is fantastic and was bought for a friends birthday. H compliments how much he LIKES it everyday!
I love it so much! I always wanted to have one especially because I collect knives!
It has a sharp blade, good metal, comfortable handle and a very good price. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a boot knife.
This is excellent, beautiful, and high quality knife. It has a good balance and good feel overall. I fell in love with it immediately and I highly recommend it.
This is a very good value for the price.
I love this knife and case. Both are well made and easy to wear and handle. Comes with very nice edge. Knife was a little lighter than I thought it would be, but still great knife.
I Love it!
This is a great knife for the price. It has a nice non slip handle, a good nylon sheath with a sturdy clip, and it's size makes it a good back up knife.
I bought several knives for what then was an up-coming job. Of all bought, the SRT knife fit best on my drop-down holster. It has a great feel grip wise, easy draw and secure sheath. It's a great addition to my options when on the job. Only fault I can list is I wish it had a partially serrated blade, other than that nothing.
This knife is awesome! It is incredibly sharp right out of the box and it didn't take any time to arrive.
This is a very well balanced, sturdy feeling knife. It has a razor sharp double edge blade, that is masterfully ground into a point almost too sharp to touch. The handle design and material make it very comfortable to handle and grip. A very good purchase for the price.
I'm a Police Officer out of California and I wear this boot knife every day. The leather sheath clips perfectly to the inside of my 511 ATAC boot and has not fallen out after nearly 2 months of field use. I've used it to pry open glove boxes and cut seat belts without bends or breakage. The rubber handle and single button snap are both easy to manipulate with or without gloves. For the price, it is hard to find a better boot knife. Also, it sharpens well enough to shave.
This knife is flawless! The quality of the blade is just outstanding, it is extremely sharp (right out of the box!), and looks great. The handle is comfortable and fits right into your hand. The sheath is of excellent quality and fits nicely in my boot, or on my belt. I mainly use it when I am hunting. This product is amazing, this should be the only boot-knife you should get! S&W/your website is the best!
I love it! It fits in the boot comfortably and snugly.
This knife is excellent. It has a nice edge and is very sharp.
I am incredibly pleased with this item! I ordered one for myself and one for my sister and we are both very happy with them. We do a lot of wilderness hiking and they are perfect. They maintain a keen edge. I have not only already used mine to skin a timber rattler (in which it did a perfect job, she was pregnant and I was able to slice her belly without touching the sack), I have also used it to fix a fuel hose and it sliced threw it like butter. Thank you and I highly recommend this knife to anyone!
It was a very nice knife to own! It is a very nice product!
This is a great knife! I noticed people have been complaining about the sheath of the knife and how it's uncomfortable. Something I think needs pointing out... this is an inside-the-boot knife. The clip part should be on the outside of the boot while the sheath should be inside the boot on the in-side part of your leg, snugged just behind the ankle joint and ahead of the Achilles tendon. This makes it nearly impossible to see, but keeps it accessible. Excellent knife overall!
The knife was given to my son who is serving in the U.S. Army. My son was exceptionally pleased with this gift!
Great item, fast shipping - tremendous vendor! The only drawback, if it is a drawback, is that I was surprised that the knife is Chinese made. I ordered a name brand assuming it would be American made.
I like it very much! Works great!
This is an excellent knife!
Very nice knife. A perfect fit for the field boots and it doesn't chafe at all. Great feel and better quality. Only thing I found that was even remotely wrong with it was the sheath. It was either slightly deformed or a bit too narrow for the knife. A 5 minute modification took care of that. Other than that, 5/5.
Great quality! Best knife I've ever owned and that's saying something.
This knife is very nice, well balanced, and sharp.
Top quality knife and prompt customer service.
This was a gift for my daughters boyfriend, he said it was a good quality knife, and was very pleased with it. Thank you!
I received great services and a great product!
This is a very sharp knife.
This is an excellent quality product! It fits well in my boot and other places. I am a former knife tactical instructor and it is the next best thing to a gun. This is an exceptional value. Be careful this thing is sharp!
I am currently on a law enforcement SWAT team. This knife is a great tool that is needed for this type of work.
I am currently working patrol in law enforcement. This boot knife is comfortable and a need tool for the job I am performing.
Everything works fantastic and the service was too!
The knife is very light and in obtrusively fits in my boot. The grip is a nice rubber and feels quite manageable in my hand. It does a good job going through Kevlar when you get rushed by SWAT.
It is fantastic!
The knives I bought seem to be of good quality and I am pleased with the purchase.So many things you buy today are misrepresented just to get a sale.That is not the case with the knives they are good quality knives and do exactly what I wanted them to do.
I am very happy with my purchase!
This is definately one of the best boot knives you can buy, the rubber handle makes for a great grip and the knife is extremly sharp. Everything you should expect from Smith & Wesson
Slick low profile design fits nicely inside my boot. Factory blade good and sharp, and I've had no problems.
I was a bit wary about buying this knife at first. But once it arrived, I was truly amazed at the quality and overall structure of it. Extremely durable and well built. I would definately reccomend this knife to anyone.
I was extremely surprised at the quality of the steel and the super sharp edge, you have to be careful when handling. I have purchased other boot knifes of differnt makes and this S&W is the best by far, a very weighty product.
I love it. Knowing you have something descrete and comfortable makes you feel like you are well protected. I love this Knife. Its worth buying
Order was processed quickly and arrived in perfect condition. HRT knife was as advertised. I have not used it for anything, as yet. It may become a gift. It certainly is a value for the money. (As usual for S&W products.)
I like this knife alot. I purchased it for concealment. I am happy with its design, The sheath does make it a bit hard to be a true"boot" knife. Other than this it is as sold and I am happy with it.
I like the weight and feel.
This is a good knife for the price. The sheath is well constructed of leather with a metal clip for the boot and a snap that goes over the hilt of the knife to hold it in place. The first thing I did was sharpen the edge of the knife some more. Again, for the price it is a good buy.
As of yet I have not been able to use this knife much. My primary reason for buying this knife was for my Boy Scout Camp outs. Otherwise this knife is just what I wanted and needed. I am very pleased with it and with the speedy service. I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone who needs a boot knife.
Great product for the price. Arrived quickly as usual. Knife depot has yet to disappoint on any or orders.
Works very well, and is a great product.
The HRT boot knife is a great purchase. It can be thrown with a good amount of ease, and is just too easy to conceal. It's compact size makes it a perfect companion when you're on your own. The blade is very well made and very sharp. The one criticism I have is that the leather sheath seemed a little loose inside, without the loop on top the blade would just fall out. All in all, a great find that I recommend to anyone.
Very nice. Arrived promptly. Great service.
I haven't used this knife much. I bought it as a last resort tool for when I work the road. I needed something sharp and compact and this seems to do the trick. It's not as sharp as my SOG, but the plain edge on both sides will definitely get the job done if I find myself in a tight spot. Like I said, I don't use it much. This is a last resort life saving tool for me. I work in law enforcement and find this boot knife to be a good fit for my needs.
The knife will be very useful for our search rescue group.
As a U.S. Marine infantryman, I know my way around a blade. I was a little hesitant to buy this S&W due to previous experience with one of their folders falling apart on me. However, this boot knife is exceptionally well made. Its only drawback is it loses its edge a little bit too quickly for my taste when compared to other knives I've used, but it isn't hard to bring that back up. Definitely a great tactical knife for the price.
The handle could be more grip friendly. The blade is a 10 handles is a 5 or 7 .
This is a good product and at a great price!
The knife is great. I would like to take two and make one. Would like the rubber handle on it, and just a little smaller, but again over all, I am pleased with it!
I like it very well!
I like the balance and the feel.
I bought this knife based on the reviews others have made for it. It is a very sturdy knife and of good quality construction. However I have two points not noted in the product description: This knife has a double edge blade. This could be a problem depending on the laws of your city or state. Also the sheath is pretty uncomfortable when you wear it in your boot and because of the placement of the belt clip it rides very high. All in all it is a good knife and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good boot knife.
This knife is a little long for a boot knife. However, it is a nice knife for the price.
Excellent knife. I liked the thumb break and the double edge is very sharp. It was a little long for my boots, but 8"+ boots would be great. I have it attached to my shoulder holster instead, and the clip has not allowed it to come off even though it is upside down.
This knife really is a good knife, It has a good feel to it. It is well crafted and well balanced. This knife is preaty sharp, and has a great look to it. The reason I gave this knife a "4" is because of the handle. it is not the best, but if I lost this knife I would buy another.
I love the knife, it was made very well and very sharp also. The sheath is okay but the spring clip broke the very first day.
I do like the knife but it could have been much sharper. It was OK but I compare it to a KABAR military knife I bought and it was like night and day!
Overall, a nice knife, but EXTREMELY dull edge right out of the box. Spent a good amount of time sharpening it.
Great Knife but the clip broke right out of the box. It a small thing since I can still use the knife.
The product is fine.
I love the knife but it's too long for normal use. I was hoping for a shorter blade for "legal" street wear and may have to order the other knife that has a shorter blade. But it's a great boot knife. Balanced and sharp!
The overall knife is not bad, itâs quite sharp, has good balance, thick blade and a good grip. The only downfall of this knife is its sheath. Itâs supposed to be a boot knife and that is why I bought it, Iâm a pilot in the armed forces and wanted to have a knife that I can have readily available. However, the clip incorporated into the sheath digs in into the calf. It has a lip to make it easier to clip down, but it become a hinder. To resolve the problem I had to just put the whole knife into one of by flight suit leg pockets. If it wasnât for the sheath, it would be a great buy for the price.
Horrible knife, blade snapped under normal use
You sent me the cheaper model with the rubber handle. Very unhappy.
