Due to the success of our top selling AbelBlade, we've increased our lineup to include a new larger model.
The Large AbelBlade is constructed with the same hi-quality materials as our standard knife. The design is identical, but 25% larger! The Large knife will cater to not only anglers but also, campers, hikers, rock and mountain climbers.
Both the standard and large knives will be offered with either a serrated or non-serrated blade and also solid or ported handles (scales). See below photos.
Our files are filled with stories from anglers (both fly and conventional) who used a knife to get out of trouble: from the guy who stabbed a rogue bear in Canada to the fellow who tripped in a steelhead river and used his blade to cut himself free from loose flyline that had wrapped his feet.
The AbelBlade knife is constructed of the finest components and materials including Made in the USA high carbon, high chrome, 154CM knife grade stainless steel. It has been hardened to 60RC; the handle or frame of the knife is cold finished 6061-T6 aircraft quality aluminum. For heat treating, we use the world famous Paul Bos System.
While the blades of some knives can collapse, the “liner-lock,” (the blade-locking mechanism) – of fine heat treated spring steel – can’t close until you deliberately move it to the side with your thumb, thus allowing the blade to fold back. It is engineered for quick, single-handed use... vital when you need to hang onto a rod while cutting a snagged anchor rope, cut away brush while float-tubing or cut through a streamside tangle. It’s a must while camping, or on a float trip.
The heavy-duty (removable) spring steel pocket clip has been designed to fit on the outside of your shirt, pants, wading shorts or wader pocket with the knife securely inside.
