While walking the aisles at the 2012 SHOT Show, I came across the Browning area and noticed a little area reserved for the Black Label knives by Browning. These knives are specifically labelled as â€œTactical Bladesâ€, but in reviewing them I think there are broader applications for many of the knives.
In this article Iâ€™ll discuss my findings of the new Black Label products I learned through my interview with Black Label sales representative Jared Wihongi. Jared pointed out three new knives in the Black Label line, and in this article Iâ€™ll be detailing the Arbitrator. In other articles Iâ€™ll be reviewing the Shadow Fax, and Perfect Storm.
This knife is a fixed blade, full-tang knife that takes on the appearance of a traditional dagger. In talking to Jared, he told me that this was one of his favorite â€œfightingâ€ knives. Personally I was looking at the Shadow Fax or Perfect Storm to fulfill that role, but Jaredâ€™s experience in knife fighting should put any knife enthusiast at attention.
