Browning is now offering a new knife under its Black Label line: the Speed Dial Pocket Deploy. As the name suggests, the knife has a fast blade deployment that happens as it is drawn from the pocket. This is the same technology used by Krudo Knives in that company’s SNAG system.
The blade is 3.625″ long and has a Tanto point. Browning does not state what kind of metal is used for the knife blade, but does say it has a color matched stainless steel finish.
The blade is held open by a liner lock, and the handle has machined G-10 scales to provide a good grip on the knife even when wet. Browning includes a folding thumb ramp that folds out over the index finger ring. This ramp can provide better leverage when using the knife. A similar ramp is used in some of the knives that Krudo Knives makes. Although Browning does not state so in their press materials, I would guess that these knives are being made by Krudo.
The included pocket clip can be arranged in one of two positions. The suggested retail price on the new Black Label Speed Dial knife is $44.99.
