    New blade design for 2012!

    In our quest to always improve, Abel has re-designed the blade by
    increasing the thickness from .095 to .120 of an inch.  In addition to
    the improved thickness,  we've also increased the cutting edge by 20%.
    The blade is available with a flat grind and non-serrated only.

    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.

    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

    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.

    This is essentially a custom knife that is available with or without a
    serrated blade. These knives are produced in limited numbers in our shop
