10 Products You Didn’t Know That Smith & Wesson Makes

smith and wesson lesser-known products, knives

All of us in the gun community are very aware of the gun options from Smith & Wesson.

(If you haven’t heard of a J-Frame revolver, you have definitely been living under a rock.)

The newer M&P line of pistols and ARs, for example, have been solid performers for quite a while.

I even have a slightly modified M&P Pro 9mm on my hip as I write this.

The commitment to high-quality items from S&W doesn’t stop at firearms, however.

Here are 10 lesser-known items that Smith and Wesson makes that you might not know about:

1. Tactical pens

The Smith & Wesson® Delta Force® PL-10 LED Penlight is a tactical pen on one end and a flashlight on the other.

This tactical pen has a crenelated tip for durability as a defensive stabbing tool.

That tip also acts as a DNA retention device to assist law enforcement after the fact.

The flashlight end has a 105 lumen LED bulb.

2. Knives

S&W® S.A. Red Liner Lock Knife: a liner lock knife with a tungsten window breaker and a seat belt slicer.

At 4.7 ounces, with 3.25” semi-serrated black steel 8Cr13MoV blade and rubberized aluminum handle, this lock knife does the job.

3. Headlamps

The Smith & Wesson® Delta Force® HL-20 LED Headlamp has side and over the head straps, settings up to 870 lumens and weighs in at less than 4 ounces.

4. Tactical flashlights

The M&P Night Terror is a beast of a rechargeable flashlight.

This model boasts seven power settings, from low to Turbo 2.

Low has a run time of 34 hours. High has a run time of two hours, but the beast mode is Turbo 2 setting with 12,500 lumens.

It comes with wall and vehicle chargers.

5. Money clips

Why not show your commitment to firearms every time you pay with cash?

With the Smith and Wesson Trillium Money Clip, a silver two-tone money clip, you can.

6. Shooting glasses

They come with a zipper protection pouch and a microfiber cleaning cloth

7. Handcuffs

The M-1H Hinged Handcuff N Carbon Steel Hinged Handcuffs feature a smooth-action, double-lock mechanism.

They’re great for simple, one-handed cuffing and solid retention.

8. Magazine pouches

The M&P Pro Tac 8 Pistol Magazine Pouch is made from ballistic nylon and is a double-sided pistol magazine pouch. There are four slots per side.

It also features the Smith & Wesson logo and one closure pouch has an external hook and loop for a personal morale patch.

9. Left-handed holsters

Even southpaws have holsters available for their 686 revolvers from Smith and Wesson, as the Left Hand L-Frame Tan Leather Silhouette Holster aptly illustrates.

10. Tomahawks

This Tomahawk is durable as well as being ready for blade or pick usage.

The TPE overlay on the handle provides a durable grip surface.

About the Author:

John Bibby

John Bibby is an American gun writer who had the misfortune of being born in the occupied territory of New Jersey. His parents moved to the much freer state of Florida when he was 3. This allowed his father start teaching him about shooting prior to age 6. By age 8, he was regularly shooting with his father and parents of his friends. At age 12, despite the strong suggestions that he shouldn’t, he shot a neighbor’s “elephant rifle."

The rifle was a .375 H&H Magnum and, as such, precautions were taken. He had to shoot from prone. The recoil-induced, grass-stained shirt was a badge of honor. Shooting has been a constant in his life, as has cooking.

He is an (early) retired Executive Chef. Food is his other great passion. Currently, he is a semi-frequent 3-Gun competitor, with a solid weak spot on shotgun stages. When his business and travel schedule allow, you will often find him, ringing steel out well past 600 yards. In order to be consistent while going long, reloading is fairly mandatory. The 3-Gun matches work his progressive presses with volume work. Precision loading for long-range shooting and whitetail hunting keeps the single-stage presses from getting dusty.

  1. The question is whether S&W actually MAKES this stuff, or has it made overseas somewhere with their name on it.

    There was a time when S&W made alcohol-testing Breathalyzers, ammo, leathergoods etc. I have a stainless steel boot knife with their name on it I bought back in the ’80’s. You can sharpen it today and tomorrow it will be dull again. The steel isn’t right.

    There was also a time when S&W made real quality firearms, and the parts were fit and finished by competent gunsmiths, but that was back before they thought revolver safeties and internal parts were made from granular steel. Sorry but the products they sell today are not the quality the old ones were.

  2. I knew they made Hand-cuffs and pocket knives (as I own a set of S&W Cuffs, but was unaware of some of the other products. Reminds me a bit of when my Grandfather passed. As the only Grandson, most of his tools and guns werd left to me. When I was going through his tools, I ran across a 6 inch wooden Folding Ruler. Marked in 32nds and very well made, I was surprised to see the Winchester Logo heat stamped or branded into the wood along with a serial number. A few emails to Winchester, prompted quite the response. Apparently they had produced the rulers between the Wars, but had no records as to how many, or why they were produced, as those records were lost at some point. Their resident historian was quite excited and we sent him a number of pictures of the ruler, which he was very happy to get. Whether they’ll ever do a product History or not, it was a surprise to find. Makes you wonder what other products the various American Gun Manufacturers produced through the years that are now lost to history.
