Browning has added five new knives to its popular Black Label line: the Backlash, the Checkmate, the Fear Factor, the Trip Wire and the Strike Force. Each is designed with a rugged construction that's meant to make it ideal for everyday use or self-defense.
The Backlash is a double-edged fixed blade knife made from 440 stainless steel. It's handle is CNC machined G-10 composite, and is available in black or coyote tan.
The Checkmate is a folding knife with a false edge spear point blade. The blade itself is made out of hollow ground 8Cr13Mov stainless steel, and the handle features liner lock construction and has checkered G-10 scales.
The Fear Factor knife was crafted with self-defense in mind. It features a fixed hawkbill/talon karambit-style blade made out of 440 stainless steel and textured G-10 scales on the handle.
The Trip Wire fixed blade knife features a built-in three-position wire cutter, and is made out of N690Co stainless steel. It has a highly modified spear point, false edge and chopping grind on the spine and partially serrated edge.
The Strike Force fixed blade karambit-style tactical knife features a full tang construction with a finger loop. Its handle is textured black with G-10 scales and the blade is made out of 440 stainless steel.
