Whether you find yourself hiking in the depths of a dark forest, riding a ridge above the high plains or simply toiling in your suburban backyard, the extraordinarily versatile Elk Ridge Forester Pocket Knife is your ultimate companion - a Tonto to your Lone Ranger, a "Sundance Kid" to your Butch Cassidy. The Forester looks great, feels great and performs even better - it's a capable, solidly built all-arounder that's up to any task in any environment. Best of all, it's surprisingly affordable, easily rivaling pocket knives priced near 100. The 4" drop point blade is forged from resilient stainless steel with a chic, discreet nonreflective black coating. It deploys near-instantly with just a tug of the handy blade spur and/or nudge of the ambidextrous thumb studs, thanks to Elk Ridge's exclusive "Ballistic" assisted opening mechanism. Furthermore, opening the Forester only requires one hand - perfect for multitaskers who rarely have two hands to spare for any job. The Forester's durable injection molded nylon fiber handle is cleverly arched for increased leverage and control, reduced hand fatigue and and all-around improved wielding experience. Stylishly formed rubberized grips add a touch of "cool" to this smartly designed folder, while all but eliminating slippage, even in wet, challenging conditions. Add a convenient lanyard hole, stable liner lock and sturdy pocket clip, and you've got a practically flawless everyday carry pocket knife that won't cost you a lot of dough. The Elk Ridge Forester Assisted Opening Pocket Knife is one of those folders you'll love using so much, you'll find yourself constantly seeking out excuses to brandish it. It's a hell of an awesome knife. And we think that's reason enough to take it out any time the urge strikes.
