The Bear Edge Knives 61123
The 61123 builds on a black aluminum handle/frame and offers durable hard use performance. Standing out from the otherwise tactical aesthetics of the 61123 is a red back spacer. The spacer runs from the butt, forward to approximately the mid-point and additionally includes a lanyard hole. Also, running along the spine of the spacer is an exposed section of jimping, promoting enhanced grip and control.
The 3-inch blade is constructed of 420 stainless-steel, preventing undo rust and corrosion damage. In addition, the 3-inch length is legal in most jurisdictions. Featuring a modified Wharncliffe blade profile, the 61123 is ideal for both self-defense and general EDC utility. Utilizing a flipper design, the blade smoothly rides on ball bearing washers with the help of a spring-assisted opening mechanism.
Due to a hollow saber grind, the 61123 is a keen cutter, while a top swedge helps reduce drag. During use, the 61123 remains in lockup via a frame lock. However, it does not include a steel lock insert, so the aluminum lock will experience wear over time.
At 3.8 ounces, in part because of lightening holes in the handle, and 4.25-inch closed length, the 61123 presents little footprint in the pocket. The 61123 also remains deep in the pocket, thanks to the deep-carry pocket clip. Correspondingly, the pocket clip is set up for right-hand tip-up carry only.
The Bear Edge Knives 61123 is available now with an MSRP of $65.99. For more info, please visit BearAndSonCutlery.com.
