Browning Knives 2008
Release Date: 1/1/2008
When big game animals go down, out come the Browning Knives. They have taken care of skinning, cleaning and thousands of other jobs for over 37 years. They are reliable and strong while always looking good. When you put a Browning knife in your pocket or hang one on your belt, you’re packing a few ounces of sharp confidence that you know is going to perform, hands down, over the closest competition. A Browning knife also makes a much-appreciated gift because it bears the most respected name in outdoor products and can be trusted to take care of a myriad of camp chores and duties around the home. And with the Browning name on it, it will be less likely to get lost.
New and exciting knife models are available for 2008. For instance, the most unique Crowell/Barker Competition knife. This 10” fixed blade is a joint effort between James Crowell and Reggie Barker, the only two men to have won an American Bladesmith Society (ABS) World Cutting Championship. This knife is approved for select International Cutting Competition Trail (ICCT) events. The new Hunting Traditions Series knives in either the Whitetail or Mallard issue would make an excellent gift. New Escalade Series Fixed Blade Knives feature a Skinner with either brown box elder burl wood or Krayton rubber handles, or a Drop Point model with gray or brown box elder burl wood or the Krayton rubber handles.
Three stunning new folding lockback Scrimshaw knives feature a mallard, pheasant or turkey, framed in scrimshaw with a laser-engraved Buckmark logo.
The Prism Knives will be a smash hit with Browning fans, perhaps more so with the ladies. They are all folders with 420JI stainless steel drop point blades. Each anodized handle is a different color. Select pink, orange, blue, green or turquoise. Give one to your mother, girlfriend, wife or daughter. They’ll love it!
A new knife joining the Eclipse Classic Series is the new Carbon Fiber model. It has a carbon fiber handle and protective coated 440-C stainless steel.
Easily catching your eye are the handles on the new Aztec Pocket Knife Series. They are crafted from striking zebra wood and genuine stag with a Buckmark inlay. Here are the perfect gifts for the person who carries a handy pocketknife. Three models are available with the Congress model having four sharp blades at the ready.
Also new is the Gaucho knife. This fixed-blade has 4 3/4” blade made from 440-A stainless steel with an ebony and stag handle. The leather sheath makes it easy to pack along as a fine tool, especially when you need a sharp knife for those camp chores.
Browning takes great pride in our association with five of the most prestigious knifemakers in the country: Jerry Fisk, Bailey Bradshaw, John Fitch, Joseph Keeslar and James Crowell. We call these special knives the Mastersmith Collection, and you can own a magnificent knife designed by one of America’s premier knife designers.
If you know a knife collector, the classic Living History Series would make an excellent, much appreciated gift. This unique series features handles made from trees taken from historic grounds. Of special interest is the Crazy Horse model’s 4 1/2” blade made from volcanic hand-knapped obsidian. Or the Vietnam knife, with a handle made from Khan Hin wood from the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Browning’s Living History knives received the Shooting Industry’s “Knife of the Year” award.
Check out the new Stag handle fixed-blade model with brass bolsters and a fine leather sheath. This handy blade is 2 1/2” long made from tough 440-A steel that holds an edge during any tough job.
To own a Browning knife means you value quality, precise fit, finish and pride. A Browning knife will be a tool you’ll be pleased to use again and again for years to come. Select the one model that is right for you. Present them as a prized gift to those who appreciate fine cutlery.
