Ledge EDC Knife
Meet the Ledge
A modern take on the classic slip-joint knife (and designed to be as rugged as it is handsome!).
The Ledge is an “EDC for Everywhere”, meaning a knife designed to meet some of the strictest requirements with many countries’ knife laws. We at StatGear have many types of knives, and adding a slip-joint to the arsenal was a no-brainer. It also assures that if you live in a country with strict knife laws, you’ll never be left out!
What is a slip-joint?
If you’re unfamiliar with what a slip-joint mechanism is, it consists of a handle and a “non-locking” folding blade. The blade is held in position by a strong “backspring” which will hold the blade closed until it has been pulled past a 90-degree arc from the handle. Because the blade does not lock in the same way as a back, liner, or frame lock (one of the main requirements regarding legality in countries like the United Kingdom (UK), it's incredibly simplistic in its design.
The LEDGE boasts a modified sheepsfoot, flat grind, D2 steel blade that makes light work of any daily cutting task while maintaining a razor sharp edge with excellent corrosion and wear resistance enhanced by the stonewashed finish. Heat-treated to an HRC of 59-61, you can rely on the edge of your Ledge to be ready for action!
Contoured G10 handles offer a light texture for a secure and comfortable grip. With its dual layered CNC routed scales, the LEDGE gives a modern spin to a classic gentleman's knife. G10 is a thermoset laminate produced from fiberglass that is impregnated with an epoxy resin binder. G10 is commonly used for knife and gun handles due its incredible dimensional stability to withstand any shrinkage or swelling from extreme temperatures and its superior strength while staying lightweight. The textured pattern on the LEDGE help provide a non-slip surface to the ergonomically designed handle for a comfortable, controlled grip.
The reversible, deep carry, tip-up stainless steel pocket clip allows you to carry the LEDGE inconspicuously for right or left-handed use. The pocket clip is made from heat treated stainless steel with two Torx screws to keep the clip from over bending, breaking or pivoting. This all just means that you can carry your LEDGE on your preferred side, deep in your pocket, out of view and you can rest assured that it will stay securely clipped until needed at which point it is easily removed and ready to deploy.
The Ledge is perfectly sized for every day tasks. With a blade length of 2.5” (64mm), and an overall length (open) of 6.1” (155mm), the Ledge is a solid, comfortable everyday carry at only 2.0 oz! (57g).
