Excellent knife. Would recommend to everyone looking for a great knife
Bought the Swingblaze (orange) in August and very impressed 1Elk and 2Deer without sharpening and still going!
The swingblade is a GREAT design! It has everything you may need and it's all put together in a compact package. It uses AUS 8 stainless steel that has proven to be durable and long lasting. Thats what I wanted. The open face hook is very easy to use and does not jam up on you in the field. Super easy to clean also.
This knife is by far and away the best and most well thought-out product for field dressing game animals that I have ever used.THIS QUALITY PRODUCT FROM OUTDOOR EDGE IS OUTSTANDING.A MUST HAVE KNIFE FOR ANY HUNTER!I have the knife/saw combo,LOVE IT.5 STAR PRODUCT FOR SURE.
I wasn't sure about this knife, but after skinning 4 Elk I couldn't recommend this knife enough. it really does open up elk like someone installed a zipper.
Bravo Outdoor Edge, bravo! Whoever came up with the idea for the Swingblade deserves a raise. Anyone who has ever used a gut hook knows how cool they are, and how much time they can save you cleaning an animal. Most of those people also know that a ""traditional"" guy hook has some serious limitations. The opening on most gut hooks is so small that the thick hide on many animals pretty much won't fit in them. The Swingblade is the answer to that problem. The gut hook side of the knife is completely open, and works with a pushing motion instead of the regular pulling motion. The knob at the end of the gut hook prevents you from cutting stuff that you don't want to cut, and the edge is so sharp right out of the box that it requires very little effort to cut. And since it has an open design, you can actually sharpen it when it needs it! The regular knife end of the blade is a very nice drop-point blade, with just the right amount of belly. The blade on the Swingblade is high-quality AUS 8 stainless, so maintaining an edge isn't a problem. I have always preferred a fixed-blade knife for animal cleaning. They give me peace of mind that there's no lock failure possible, and I can focus on cleaning. The cool thing about the Swingblade is that it basically two fixed-blade knives in one. There's a push button on the side of the handle that releases the blade so it can swing, but when you are using the knife, you're effectively holding the back of the blade you're not cutting with, so there's no chance of cutting yourself with the other blade. Very clever! The handle has a rubber coating over Kraton, and has a nice sticky feel to it, even covered with blood. It comes with a very nice nylon belt sheath, and the handle is either black or bright orange. Overall, I think this is a fantastic knife, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a hunting knife.
