If you fish, hike, boat, hunt, bird watch or just walk in the woods, you absolutely, positively should carry a good knife, that can save your life in an emergency.
This is the finest, fastest, easiest, sharpest, hardest-working tool you will ever own. It's large enough to do the job, yet small enough and light enough to carry all the time.
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 6061-T6 aircraft quality aluminum. For heat treating, Abel uses the world famous Paul Bos System.
The blade is hollow-ground by hand.
The "liner-lock", that is, the blade-locking mechanism of fine 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 fishing rod while cutting a snarled 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.
These knives are produced in very limited numbers in Abel's shop in the good old USA.
