Edgie2 description
Since the dawn of human history, man has dreamed of a knife that would sharpen itself during normal use. Here it is, the patented* brainchild of inventor Maj. Howard Pope (USAR Ret.), who collaborated with custom knifemaker and Knifemakers' Guild member Steve Jernigan. We call it the Edgie line, because they hone their edges every time they are opened or closed.

The Edgie 2 is a dual-edged Edgie lockback with a 3.25" blade. The "American Eagle Wharncliffe" blade grind tapers at the tip for better penetration and much easier cutting of thick materials such as corrugated cardboard.

Again, the frame is superstrong thanks to our stainless steel InterFrame build with glass filled nylon scales. A textured surface and soft grooved TPR insert give excellent grip under all conditions. Blue or yellow insert models are available.

The long blade slot allows easy one-hand opening. The lockback release is at the butt for exceptional lockup safety.

The secret is diamond-coated spring sharpeners built into the folder frames, placed at the precise angle to give the blades a sharpening stroke as they are closed and opened. Not only do you never need to sharpen the Edgie blade with stones or wheels, but you should not, because it may alter the blade's proper self-sharpening edge angle. Of course, it is important during a long cutting work session to periodically open and close the blade to maintain the edge.

A note about the cutting edge. The diamond sharpening strips cause a tiny burr to form, acting as a micro serration, which helps cutting action. This makes the Edgie tops for cutting cardboard boxes, rope, cord, garden stalks, and even ripe tomatoes. The more you sharpen Edgie models, the more pronounced this micro serration honing becomes. For those who are used to a traditional Razor-Sharp edge, it may be disconcerting, but it is the secret of why the blades cut through fibrous materials so effectively.

The Edgie 2 models feature removable stainless steel clips in satin finish.

That's the Edgie story. It's not too glamorous, just a tale of affordable and tough little work knives designed to take a lot of use and stay sharp. *U.S. Patent No. 6,643,934b2
