NRA American Rifleman Features Two Black Label Wihongi Signature Knives.

Recently B. Gil Horman of the NRA American Rifleman magazine staff outlined the features of two of the most striking knives in the Black Label Wihongi Signature line from Browning.

“Working in conjunction with edged-weapon expert Jared Wihongi, Browning has launched the new-for-2017 series of Black Label Wihongi Signature tactical knives,” noted Horman.

For his article, Horman pinged Wihongi about his tactical background. “For the last two decades, I’ve been to almost every corner of the globe, teaching law enforcement, security and military about the function of knives as tools of combat and personal defense,” Wihongi stated. “In that time, I have learned there are many styles of tactical knives that can work well for the intent of their design.”

“This series takes a step beyond proper form and function with the incorporation of artistically applied Maori motif etching,” Wihongi continued. “The Maori designs on the Wihongi Signature line of blades are intended to honor the warrior spirit that lives in each of us.”

“The Signature Series fixed blade double-edge Dagger (320194BL) features a brushed finish 6" 7Cr17MoV stainless steel blade, sculpted and polished black G10 scales and full-tang construction,” notes Horman. “Patterned after the a traditional Nepalese knife, the Wihongi Kukri sports a 9" long, 3/16" thick flat-ground 8Cr14MoV stainless steel blade. With its distinctive inward curve, this knife can be used as a machete or camp knife as well as a defensive tool.”

“Both of these fixed-blade knives ship with rugged Kydex sheaths with quick release belt clip plus slots and eyelets attaches easily to a belt, back pack or web gear. Other series options include tactical folding knives and a tomahawk.
