What Is Black Friday To You?
Black Friday represents different things to different people. Perhaps you see it all as a total mess; dozens of insane people fighting for a TV at the local WalMart. Or, maybe you see it as an opportunity to save lots of money on the very things you need to buy this year.
To us, finding the right deals on Black Friday and doing so in such a way that you DON'T have to fight the crowds is the best possible scenario. In fact, many retailers, Lyons Tactical included, realize this and have started releasing our Black Friday deals early, and online. But, even if you can find the sales, how do you know what to shop for?
After a full year's research on what is popular and what people want, we have out together out 2019 Black Friday Tactical Buyer's Guide. Pay attention: these are the things people prefer and the items that are sure to be a hit for you this year, oh, and the savings are spectacular too!

Spyderco Lil' Sub-Hilt Knife
Designed by renowned custom knifemaker Butch Vallotton, the Lil’ Sub-Hilt is a more compact, pocket-friendly expression of his first Spyderco collaboration, the Vallotton Sub-Hilt. Like the original, it features a beautifully crafted handle constructed with full skeletonized stainless steel liners and stainless steel bolsters. They are paired with contoured, polished G-10 scales and complemented by matching G-10 inlays in the bolsters. The result is a stylish sub-hilt-style handle with a custom-quality, seamless fit that accurately replicates Vallotton’s coveted custom knives.
The blade of the Lil’ Sub-Hilt is equally stunning. Painstakingly crafted from CPM® S30V® stainless steel, it features hollow-ground main bevels with contrasting flat-ground tip bevels for a superior balance of edge geometry and point strength. It proudly includes both Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™ and Vallotton’s signature thumb stud/stop pin to ensure swift, fully ambidextrous, one-handed opening and an ultra-secure lock-up of the knife’s stout LinerLock mechanism.
To support all possible carry preferences, the Lil’ Sub-Hilt includes a four-position pocket clip that provides tip-up and tip-down carry on both the left and right sides. A remarkably refined folding knife, the Lil’ Sub-Hilt faithfully distills all the custom-quality features of its larger counterpart in a sleek, pocket-friendly format that is ideal for everyday carry.
