Case & Sons Cutlery announced the introduction of the Case Besh Wedge, a fixed-blade knife designed by Brent Beshara of the Canadian Special Forces and inspired by the V-42 knife made by Case during WWII for the First Special Service Force, a joint Canadian/American commando unit.

The Besh Wedge features a unique blade design that uses two diagonally opposed bevels that come together to form a third edge. This design also works to give the knife a stronger point that prevents the blade weakness found in other knife designs.

The knife features a 6.5-inch blade made from the company's Tru-Sharp surgical steel. The blade features a proprietary grinding treatment that is unique to the Besh Wedge and comes with a matte finish. The knife also features a full tang and a protective finger guard that is designed to provide control and stability.

The overall size of the knife is 12 inches, and it weighs only 6.5 ounces. The Besh Wedge comes with a sheath made by Blade-Tech, which features an integrated attachment that allows users to carry the knife on belts with a width of up to 0.25 inch. The knife also features brown handles made from G10 wood laminate.

The knife will be available to consumers in Fall 2017, and the suggested retail price of the new Besh Wedge knife is $390.
