Outdoor Edge RazorCape Folding Knife

1. Outdoor Edge RazorCape
The replaceable blade RazorCape Knife from Outdoor Edge comes with the blades you need to completely take down game from the gutting start to a caping finish.

Outdoor Edge’s RazorSafe push-button blade changing system is fast, easy and, most of all, safe. MSRP: $37.95;

The set comes with three blade types (drop point, saw and tanto), and a hard-sided blade case. MSRP: $49.99;

A pocket clip provides an alternative to a belt sheath, and the added thumb stud makes opening the 110 Hunter Sport a one-handed operation. The 3¾-inch clip-point blade is made of heat-treated S30V steel. MSRP: $145.99;
