Fans of NCIS know Rule No. 11 — Never go anywhere without a knife. It’s a pretty good rule to by which to live. Knives are extremely useful everyday tools that can also be used in self defense. This especially goes for assisted lockback knives such as the Bear Edge. These types of knives come out fast and easy.
This Edge features a black powder-coated 440 high carbon stainless steel blade fashioned to a 3-inch hollow ground modified drop point. It also comes with thumb studs for quick, ambidextrous opening. It’s ease of opening also comes courtesy of an integrated open assist. Then, the positive lock design keeps the blade in place for any cutting task.
While Bear used stainless steel for the blade, it created the handle from lightweight aluminum. The blade measure 3 inches, with a fully opened measurement of 7 1/2 inches. Because of all this the knife weighs a mere 4 ounces. This weight doesn’t affect its usefulness, and it absolutely helps its portability.
To start, the handle and spine features jimping for a no-slip grip during use. It also comes with a high-strength boot/pocket clip that keeps the knife secure in a tip-down carry position for quick retrieval and opening. It even comes with a lanyard hole integrated into the handle for storage convenience or added carry security.
This Made in America knife even comes in the Realtree EDGE camouflage pattern, which will impress most people.
