Portland, OR -( We can all picture the situation: an adventure seeker with a sharp knife in one hand and a flashlight in the other, trying to make a decent cut, in a darkened, possibly dangerous situation.

If he or she is lucky, they’ll make a cut that’s “good enough”. That “good enough” cut may not be sufficient, however, especially while adventuring through an unknown, remote environment – where you need to have complete confidence in your gear. COAST Products customers have asked for a stand-alone tool that combines both a high quality knife with a dependable, high-output light – a tool that places emphasis on safety, accuracy and peace-of-mind.

With 96 years of knife making knowledge combined with industry leading flashlight technology, COAST exceeded customer expectations with the new LK375 Light Knife. For maximum versatility in a multifunction, one-handed, lightweight tool, this new knife is ideal for adventure seekers trekking through rugged outdoor environments.

The Light Knife will be featured by COAST at the Outdoor Retailer Show Booth 28045 from August 5-8 in Salt Lake City, Utah at the Salt Palace Convention Center. COAST products – including knives, flashlights and headlamps – offer advanced quality and innovation, the latest patented and proprietary features and technology, and are perfect for every camper, backpacker, climber, hiker or outdoor enthusiast.

Innovative Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Create One-of-a-Kind Light Knife

Providing effortless performance, day in and day out, COAST’s new LK375 is the first knife that includes a real, usable LED flashlight rated by the ANSI FL1 standard to 110 lumens. Powered by a single AAA battery (not button cells), the LK375 is truly a two-in-one tool, a high quality flashlight with top-notch optics, the COAST Universal Spot Beam, and a strong, one handed opening, partially serrated knife. The light will project a beam for 53 meters and can run for one hour and 30 minutes on high and over four hours on low.

The LK375’s 110 lumen output provides exceptional light that will not only illuminate the cutting area of the knife blade, but can also serve as a primary or secondary light source in the backcountry or around camp. The LK375’s on/off button is easy and comfortable to reach with a thumb or one finger. The switch function stays on momentarily and has low and high beam power levels. The LK375 is submersible and waterproof rated to IPX7.

Exceptional Craftsmanship, Built to Last

The Light Knife features a heavy duty, drop point blade, and an oval cut-out in the blade for fast, easy opening. It has a liner lock that automatically locks the blade in the open position. The blade has a partially serrated edge with glass bead finish that resists corrosion. It is 3.75 inches (9.5 cm) long, when closed, and 8.5 inches long (21.5 cm) when open, weighs 5.30 ounces and has a Polycarbonate handle housed in a stainless steel frame – sturdy, lightweight and easy to clean. The Light Knife has a removable pocket clip for convenient carry and the handle has thumb notching for added versatility and control. Resilient in all-environments and temperatures, the LK375 blade is made of high-quality 7Cr17 stainless steel, making it the ideal knife for a variety of adventure activities.

Providing a consistent cut each time, along with an exceptional LED light, the LK375 also meets ANSI specifications. And, as with COAST’s entire product line, the new Light Knife is backed by a lifetime warranty.
