Outdoor Edge has announced the immediate availability of the company’s Pivot fixed-blade knives. The Pivot represents a redesign of the company’s popular LeHawk and LeDuck knives. The new Pivot line is available with either a 2.6-inch Wharncliffe blade or a 2.5-inch drop-point blade.


The new Pivot offers an ergonomically redesigned rubberized thermoplastic rubber handle that fits safely and securely in the hand. It can serve as either a backup blade for a survival situation or as a primary blade when you’re traveling light.


The Pivot also features a 360-degree rugged polypropylene rotating sheath system with a removable clip that attaches to any belt, pack, flotation or diving vest. It’s compatible with any MOLLE system, allowing for a multitude of carry options. In addition, the sheath quickly converts into a neck knife with the included paracord.

When sheathed, the knives will also fit easily into a pants pocket, or inside the glovebox of your vehicle. The superior edge retention and performance on the Pivot knives, is afforded by the Blackstone-coated stainless steel blades that are precisely heat treated and hand finished shaving sharp, making them the perfect blade for a variety of cutting tasks.

Wharncliffe Pivot

Aside from the drop-point model, the Pivot is also available with a Wharncliffe blade.


The newly designed Pivot series is the perfect all-purpose, everyday carry knife that is simple in design but long in performance. They are in stock and currently available at retailers and conveniently online at www.OutdoorEdge.com for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
