NRA American Rifleman Likes the Browning Wihongi Signature Tactical Folders.

Browning’s tactical knife expert Jared Wihongi.

The NRA American Rifleman magazine is a recognized voice of authority around the globe for all things related to hunting, shooting, self-protection and the great outdoors. Recently their respected writer B. Gil Horman took a close look at some popular tactical knives and really liked what he found in a pair of Black Label Wihongi Signature folders from Browning.

“This year I waded into an ocean of options and found a variety of practical and tactical folders with which to work,” Horman continued. “The prices are much more reasonable than one might expect considering the features these knives provide.” 

“New for 2017, Browning has teamed up with edged-weapon expert Jared Wihongi to release a series of signature tactical knives, including the two folding models shown here,” noted Horman. “Both knives have hollow-ground 7Cr17MoV stainless steel blades hardened to 56-58 Rockwell with artistically applied Maori motif etching. Other shared features include stainless steel screws and supports, bi-lateral assisted opening thumb studs, jimping at the base of the blade for improved control and removable Browning logo pocket clips.”

“The general-purpose Attachment Folder frame lock has a 3.75" clip point blade with blood grooves,” observed Horman. “The aircraft-grade aluminum frame has a titanium finish, a handguard and a choice of three interchangeable G10 and carbon fiber logo inserts that fit into the left side of the grip.”

“The combat Signature Folder offers a 3.60" deep-draft reverse tanto blade profile,” Horman continued. “The handle consists of full-length G10 scales with stainless steel liners and a decorative pivot pin. The back of the handle is comfortably curved with deep finger grooves along the front. The extended lanyard eyelet can be used as a striking surface or submission tool.”

“One of the tools most commonly found in every-day carry sets around the world is the not-so-humble folding knife,” stated Horman. “Whether you are looking for a gentleman’s folder, a heavy-duty utility knife or a tactical blade to back up your concealed-carry pistol, there's a quality folding knife out there that can get the job done.”
