Having a good pocket knife on hand makes sense for so many reasons. A sharp-edged cutting tool was one of mankind’s first inventions, and they continue to be useful to this very day. From do-it-all, everyday carry (EDC) knives to specialized knives for hunting or self defense, there is no substitute for having a knife with you when you really need one.

Bear Edge Knives makes affordable-priced knives for everyday use and carry, and now for 2021 the company is introducing the new Bear Edge 61123. The knife delivers ball bearing washers for smooth deployment, strong aluminum handles, and a unique Warncliffe blade profile for superior cutting performance. A lanyard spacer is included on the back of the handle that is for secure fastening and storage.

The Bear Edge 61123 is a pocket knife that features a 3-inch modified Warncliffe blade made from 440 stainless steel. The knife is built for reliable, on-demand action and features spring-assist opening and smooth-glide ball bearing washers for rapid blade deployment. The 61123’s black aluminum handles are comfortable in the hand and designed for hard use. A frame-lock locking mechanism keeps the knife securely deployed for the most challenging tasks. This 4¼-inch pocket knife includes a robust pocket clip for tip-up carry that can also be comfortably used as a boot clip. The open length for Pattern 61123 is 7¼ inches and the knife weighs 3.8 ounces.
