The Abel Blade 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.
We carry ported handle with serrated blade. Solid handle and non-serrated blades can be ordered upon request.
