What makes a knife "tactical"? The design and look of a knife can lend to a tactical feel (darker colors that are not reflective), solid build, high quality steel, well designed handle that is ergonomic and has a good grip. Fixed blade is more durable than folding, though folding knives are easier to carry and are usually lighter weight and smaller.
Some come with sheaths, and some knives have pocket clips instead of sheaths.
