The AbelBlade Knife is constructed of only the finest components and materials on the market today. Made in the USA high carbon, high chrome, and 154CM knife grade stainless steel ensure that the AbelBlack Knife will perform flawlessly for decades. The AbelBlade itself has been hardened to 60RC and the handle or frame of the knife is cold finished 6061-T6 aircraft quality aluminum. For heat treating, Abel utilizes the world famous Paul Bos System.
Due to the success of the top selling AbelBlade, the new Large AbelBlade is constructed with the same high quality materials as the standard-sized knife. The design is identical, but 25% larger! Both the standard and large knives are offered with either a serrated blade and ported handles (scales).
How do you make the finest pocketknife on the planet even better? With a hand-painted blue marlin pattern! Melton Tackle has commissioned Abel to create a custom knife hand painted to match a blue marlin. Every knife is a one-of-a-kind design, anodized individually by hand using Abel's own artistic metallurgical process. These knives are produced in limited numbers and match the hand painted Blue Marlin Abel Pliers. Truly a must have for the serious offshore angler.
While the blades of some knives can collapse, the blade-locking mechanism – of fine heat treated spring steel – can’t close until you deliberately move it to the side with your thumb, thus allowing the blade to fold back. It is engineered for quick, single-handed use... absolutely vital when you are in an emergency situation.
The heavy-duty (removable) spring steel pocket clip has been designed to fit on the outside of your shirt, pants, wading shorts or wader pocket with the knife securely inside.
