SHOT Show 2016: Seen & Heard from Andre Forkert

New folders and fixed knives from FirstEdge for Special Forces

FirstEdge Knives & Tools (booth N305) debuts at SHOT Show 2016 and promise the hottest knives now in use by U.S. Special Forces. The company builds on innovation and problem solving. At a time when many are bemoaning the growing trend to move manufacturing offshore, one newly created American company is staying put. FirstEdge with 120+ years of knife making management experience, has created Knives together with and for the U.S. Special Forces. Brett Seber, CEO of FirstEdge explainsFirstEdge is a Problem Solver – We came into existence due to the fact that U.S. Special Forces had distinct issues with knives and sheaths in the field. Since we are well known for our ability to analyze and solve problems, we were called in to help. With Special Forces input, FirstEdge designed and rapidly prototyped both Fixed Blade and Folding Knives. Production began in 2015 with initial shipments to Special Forces only. Acceptance by Special Forces operatives in the field and in training lead us to expand production to select commercial markets.”

FirstEdge Knives & Tools owns different patents like the: firstedge tracklock folding knife locking system. Inspired by US Special Forces, FirstEdge folding knives are equipped with a New Patent Pending Opening and Locking System designed for military as well as outdoor extreme applications and environments. The TrackLock has a large steel locking pin that passes through the blade as well as the hardened steel liners, resulting in strength exceeding many times the industrial standard for knife-lock failure. The TrackLock allows for fast, safe and secure one-handed opening and closing. Available in Manual, Assisted Opening and Automatic versions. Made in USA with ELMAX Steel from Sweden the knives also have an extreme weather Kydex tri-composite sheaths. FirstEdge's Fixed Blade Patent-Pending Knife Sheaths were designed in partnership with US Special Forces to withstand the harshest conditions on the planet. The patent pending Tri-Composite construction allows for disassembly, cleaning and reassembly in minutes. The outer layers are precision-formed KYDEX panels. Two different sizes of 3" USA Made Poly-Pro Nylon webbing allow the user to choose between higher or lower carry.

The Material of the blades is ELMAX (by Uddeholm) steel from Schweden. ELMAX steel’s composition of metals results in a Superior Stainless Steel alloy with extremely high wear resistance, superior corrosion resistance and extremely high compressive strength. High wear resistance and high corrosion resistance together is very rare. ELMAX’s advanced powder metallurgy technology allows for this desired combination. The steel is hardened to 60-61 HRC resulting in excellent edge-retention as well as high impact resistance, yet as easy to sharpen and hold an edge as a good carbon steel alloy. ELMAX steel can withstand serious ultra-heavy use and is ideal for Survival, Outdoor and Underwater applications, where high durability, toughness, wear and corrosion resistance is critical.

FirstEdge has three new folders and two new fixed blade models are fully introduced at the SHOT Show 2016. All the models will be available for sale and delivery in the first quarter of 2016.
