    Browning Speed Load Interchangeable Blade Folding Knife

    Saw this as a sale item in the Bass Pro flyer and caught my interest for I am a big fan of folding box-cutters. I talked myself out of it considering I have more than enough box-cutters but also the reviews aren't that great. With that said, I wondering if anyone here owns or even used this specific knife?

    Pretty short blade for such a heavy folder, I guess I'd prefer the Havalon series.

    But those ^^ same huge fonts are impressive.

    I have a few utility-blade holders but that one doesn't interest me at all, and the $35 price is way too high for what it is, IMO.

    Neat idea but if you're really having to stop and sharpen your knife when field dressing, you could probably do with a better steel. I don't think 420J2 is much to brag about with their blades either, because you'll definitely end up swapping out the blades if that's the steel you're using. I do like the idea of "knife blade shaped replaceable blades" though and I would love to have those shaped blades for my Gerber EAB.

    Font too absurdly large, didn't read... Shame really as i love knives with replaceable blades and havalon knives are hard to get over here.

    If I had a need for something like this I guess I'd try the Havalon Titan.

    AUS-8 is easy to field sharpen, if that's not enough you have a long and thin replaceable blade.

    It comes with a (main blade tip-down) clip but I guess such a knife is better held in a sheath with some extra blades (like in the Pro edition).

    What I like about the Browning is it can hold the standard razor blade that is pennies and you can buy packages of 100 at any hardware store.

    For those blades I guess I'd use a Gerber EAB and for real outdoor stuff any fixed blade with a sheath with included sharpener and/or fire rod.
