You would want to consider the Original Handgun Safe over the FTK-PB IF portability is important to you. Since it has a handle, the Stealth Original Handgun Safe is more portable. That might work better if you move often, or sometimes take your handgun with you in a vehicle.
Some sample configurations I know you can do with the Stealth Original Handgun Safe include… Two M1911s, along with extra ammo. Two Ruger SR9Cs, along with extra ammo. Inner Dimensions: 3? H x 10-1/2? W x 9? D Capacity: 0. 164 cubic feet Outer Dimensions: 4-1/4? H (5-1/4? H with knob) x 12-9/16? W x 10-1/4? D (11-1/2? D with handle extended) Construction: 10 gauge steel body, 3/16” steel wrapping around door, chrome-plated thick locking bolt.

No lifetime guarantee. Pluck foam interior might not be most durable, but that’s a pretty small expense to replace.
AMSEC PS1210HD Review American Security (AMSEC for short) is another well-known safe manufacturer. The PS1210HD pistol box/handgun safe is a heavy duty product that is also quite similar to the Fort Knox FTK-PB. Its dimensions and materials are quite similar to both the FTK-PB and Stealth Original Handgun Safe.
However, there are a few differences if you look at the AMSEC PS1210HD v. Fort Knox FTK-PB or AMSEC PS1210HD v. Stealth Original Handgun Safe. Compared with the FTK-PB, the AMSEC PS1210HD is more portable. It has a handle, whereas the FTK-PB does not (similar to the Original Handgun Safe).
The polypropylene handle is comfortable even after extended use, and the tapered handle tackles rocking tasks such as mincing garlic with ease. The blade wasn’t as sharp as the other knives we tested, and-despite its significant heft-didn’t tackle the heavy duty tasks with as much ease.
Durable- Not very sharpWhile the Tojiro DP Gyutou 8. 2-inch knife wasn’t the worst knife on the list, it also didn’t measure up to the other Japanese hybrid knives we tested. It was as lightweight as the MAC knife, but lacked the strength to make it through heavy-duty items, sticking in the squash and only going through with concerted effort.
While it was sharp enough to cut paper, it made jagged slices of tomatoes and bruised the delicate basil. The blade itself was skinnier than most of the knives we tested, positioning my fingers closer to the blade than I wanted, and it lacked the finer control that a wider blade offers.
Sharp and thin- Very lightweight- Not well-balanced- Not very strongThere is no denying that the Dalstrong Gladiator Series knife wins for presentation: besides the sleek look of the large blade and beautiful pakkawood handle, the knife comes in an impressive box with a hard plastic blade cover, a polishing cloth, and a keychain (I’m not sure what I’m going to do with that!).
Unfortunately, the knife is too heavy at 10. 5 ounces, lacks control, has an uncomfortable grip, and is sharper towards the handle and duller towards the tip. It struggled on all of the tests and wasn’t sharp enough to make it through the tomato test.
Very beautiful design- Too heavy- Lacks control- Uncomfortable gripI usually love J. A. Henckels knives, but unfortunately, this knife missed the mark. Made with Spanish steel instead of the traditional German steel, this knife wasn’t strong or sharp enough. It failed to be impressive in any category.
