Question on Outdoor Edge 3.5 knife
So my daughter buys me this replaceable blade knife,,,,3.5 Outdoor edge. I had to do some skinning tonight, so thought I would try it. I literally had to put the blade on a diamond hone, to get it sharper??????? I have a Havalon, and never had an issue,,,,
Is it possible to get a batch of crap blades, she got it at a big box store. I even shot a squirrel to eat in the yard, and could not believe how dull, a new blade was.......
Is this typical?????????? I like my razor sharp fixed knives, but thought this would be nice...... I like how easy the blade changes out, I just think the blades are not that good...
Like a dull razor for your face,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
I use one and I’ve never had a less than razor sharp blade. They will easily dull on bone though because the edge is thin. I mainly use mine once, maybe twice and then replace it.
I got one as a gift for by birthday its been very sharp right on par with my Havalon. I think I slightly prefer to Havalon just because it has a more backbone. Both are great.
Interesting. Last weekend we used my Havalon and my buddies outdoor edge on his bull. His was every bit as sharp as mine.
I have never had one that wasn't scary sharp. But like said above, bone VERY quickly dulls them. I love mine
No problems here, you can put a boning blade in them, butchered my entire elk with a couple blades.
I’ve got the same knife. Scalpel sharp but dulls easily. I bet you got a bad batch of blades. I got a pack of Gillette razors replaceable heads for shaving once that we’re so dull they literally would not cut a single hair. Quality control failure.
that's what I am thinking.... went thru a few blades, and some are razor sharp, a few were not..... I wonder if they are made in China? thru the packaging away.
You musta got a bad batch of blades, they've always been scary sharp out of the packaging, in my experience. I'm the world's worst knife sharpener....I require replaceable blades.
Bone will dull any knife. Forrest
Yes they are “made in China”.
I think you got a bad batch of blades. Mine have always been razor sharp but I agree the blades do dull quickly.
I have the 3" model and have used it as my daily knife and hunting knife the last 2 years. I have never had a dull new blade and am impressed with how easy they are to sharpen after use.
She also bought me a field Work Sharp sharpener guide, that's really nice. for the dull blades I had, it was a quick touch up......
I 'd guess, like others you got a bad batch of blades. I've used Havalon knives and have always had sharp blades, but I never recall hearing bad things about Outdoor Edge.
All I know is every time I look at a havalon blade i cut my eyeball
The pop up add says there sharp
I am good now, but prefer the havalon. That field work sharp guide is slick though. Thanks everyone
