Browning Ceramic Speed Load Folder
Item #: BRW-117
Browning® has added to their Speed Load line a folder with replaceable Ceramic blades. Because they are ceramic, they will need to be replaced less often than if they were steel. Ceramic blades will break if you try to do any kind of prying or if you drop the knife on a hard surface with the blade open, but the longevity of the edge far surpasses any inconvenience with breakage. Just make sure you always have a replacement blade (available from Browning through A. G. Russell – item # BRW-117V).
According to designer Russ Kommer, he field dressed four deer and a black bear with one of the blades. Browning's Speed Load knives feature a quick-change blade design, so you always have a sharp edge ready to go.
Ships with three blades, perfect for field dressing, cleaning or skinning, that can be substituted in a snap. The three interchangeable ceramic blades consist of a 3" drop point blade, a 3" guthook blade, and a 2-7⁄8" caping blade. The handle is muted Camo-patterned, injection molded plastic with black rubberized grips. Has a single position, tip down pocket clip and a liner-style lock. Comes with a black nylon sheath with a hard plastic storage insert for the extra blades. Measures 4-1⁄4" closed and weighs 2.9 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail is $39.99.
