Combat knives are very handy because they are small in size and are very easy to hide. These knives are mainly designed for self-defense, but can also be used for plenty of other activities, like cleaning fish! The blade used to make combat knives is usually made of pure stainless steel, but may vary in cases where the usage of the knives is not only self-defense. The handles offer a very firm and secure grip. Some handles contain holes for fingers to ensure that the knife does not slip out when the palms are sweaty.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the demand for Combat boots, especially in the civil sector, as they are very useful, waterproof, durable, and comfortable for rough terrain activities. Different varieties of boots are available depending on geographical locations and climatic conditions, namely for desert conditions or extreme cold weather. The heels and soles are carefully molded so that the boots offer a high level of comfort and stability along with ample support for the ankle. Combat boots with rubber outsoles are considered more comfortable than those without them, since shocks are better absorbed and movement is very easy. One of the most important companies that produce soles for combat boots is Vibram, a leader company in the market.
