Bear And Son Cutlery has released another outdoor focused folding pocketknife model, the new Bear Edge Brisk 2.0 Pocket Knife. The business end of this affordable pocketknife has a three and a half inch drop point blade that is made from 440 stainless steel to hold its edge. This blade material choice makes the Brisk 2.0 suitable for a wide range of outdoor and field related chores, from slicing to chopping and other task. The drop point design provides a robust tip for piercing and cutting, while the curved edge allows for precise slicing and skinning.
