Kore Essentials DEFENDER S35VN Fixed Blade Knife

The DEFENDER fixed blade knife is a collaboration project between Kore Essentials and Toor Knives. 100% made in the USA from premium CPM S35VN steel, this blade is designed as a self-defense knife for concealed EDC (everyday carry). The included molded Kydex sheath is compatible with several different mounting clips, including IWB, OWB, belt clips, MOLLE clips, and more. The knife can be mounted horizontally or vertically with a number of different options available on the market.Ā Ā 

The ring design allows for better retention as well as preventing your hand from sliding down onto the blade. You can use this with either a forward or reverse grip comfortably.

Normally, these knives ship without mounting clips so you can choose whatever style or carry option you’d like (sold separately). I don’t know about you, but I hate ordering something and then realizing I have to order something else for it as soon as it arrives to actually use.Ā 

To avoid that headache, we’ve opted to include a 1.5″ Quick Clip Pro with every knife. These are also 100% made in the USA (including the screws) and are included at no additional charge. The Quick Clip Pro is designed for IWB carry and fits perfectly on any 1.5″ belt. The Kore Essentials EDC gun belts we carry are the perfect companion for this blade and your daily carry.Ā

Kore Essentials

Welcome to KORE, your ultimate destination for innovative men's gear that's not just built to last, but also carries a unique style statement. We take immense pride in our products, never settling for good when we can strive for great.

Our journey began in 2013, with a mission to redefine men's accessories. Our starting point? The classic men's belt. Our philosophy was straightforward ā€“ blend innovation with superior materials to create products that are not just unique, but also exceed expectations in every way.

Conventional belts, despite their thousand-year-old history, seemed to lack the perfect fit. With holes spaced an inch or more apart, they were often too tight or too loose, leading many of us to create our own holes just to achieve a decent fit. And over time, these leather holes would stretch and crack, diminishing the belt's lifespan and appeal. We believed there had to be a better way.

Fuelled by our passion for product design and a desire to revolutionize men's fashion, we embarked on creating a new kind of men's belt. A belt that functioned better, used superior materials, and boasted a great style. Why? Because we believe that's what a man's belt should be ā€“ perfectly fitting, high-quality, and stylish.

At KORE, we live by the motto: "What makes the best the best, is that they are always getting better." This ethos drives us to continually evolve, improve, and innovate. So, when you choose KORE, you're not just choosing a product; you're choosing a commitment to quality, style, and innovation.

Welcome to KORE, where greatness is just the beginning.
