A Whole, New Rage! — Schrade Enrage Series With Rage Technology

Schrade Enrage Series with Rage Technology

Rage has long been known for its lethal broadheads, and now the brand is taking its innovative cutting technology to the knife world as it partners with Schrade on the Enrage Series of replaceable-blade knives. Designed with the innovation that goes into Rage Trypan broadheads, each knife features a scalpel-sharp, .024-inch-thick blade made from 420a stainless steel, with a narrow point and up to 20 percent more cutting edge than comparable models. Knives also have a proprietary locking system that keeps the blades in place no matter the torque or pressure placed on the locking mechanism.

Enrage knives come in three ergonomic options, with distinct handle configurations and two different blade lengths in each category (six different knives are available). The Isolate Enrage (pictured) has a full, non-slip handle and comes in 7- and 8-inch models with 2.63- and 3-inch-long blades respectively, while the Phantom Enrage includes the Phantom 6 (2.25-inch-long blade) and Phantom 7 (2.63-inch-long blade) models, with both supported by a single-sided, 2X2 carbon fiber handle with a steel locking frame. At the top of the line is the Stryche Enrage, featuring an ultra-durable, forged carbon fiber handle with steel locking frame. The Stryche 6 has a 2.25-inch-long blade, while the Stryche 7 comes with a 2.63-inch blade. $39.99-$74.99 |
