SwingBlaze Review

The SwingBlaze from Outdoor Edge is two blades in one, with a quick push of the lock button you are able to rotate between a drop-point skinner and the gutting knife. The blades are AUS-8 stainless steel. The gutting is 3.6 inches long and skinning blade 3.2 inches. The Blaze Orange handle is hard to miss and offers a non-slip grip for wet, cold, rainy weather and a rests in a nylon belt sheath. Both cutting edges are heat treated with Rockwell-C hardness. Chris, one of our testers, used the SwingBlaze on a Mule deer doe and reported that it performed as advertised. We were concerned that adding a button to the handle of a razor sharp multi-purpose skinning and gutting knife might not hold. Chris reported that it was a solid lock between skinning, gutting, and impressed with the length. The SwingBlaze is just over 8 inches total and easy on the hand. Chris tantalized us with his field test, the rest of us are anxious to try it we will keep you updated.

SwingBlaze(Orange Handle)

Never lose your knife again!

This innovative, rotating blade knife features a drop-point skinner on one side. Then, push the lock button and the blade changes to the most efficient gutting knife for big game. The gutting blade cuts beneath the skin to open game like a zipper and eliminates the chance of cutting hair or internal organs. The SwingBlaze is hand finished shaving sharp from AUS-8 stainless steel and subzero quenched for superior edge retention and performance. The rubberized blaze orange handle makes the knife easy to locate at all times and ensures a positive, non-slip grip, even when wet. The SwingBlaze comes complete with a quality nylon belt sheath and is lifetime guaranteed.
