Rucarta™ is a very durable phenolic material like Micarta® that I started using in the 1970s for our Morseth® knives. Rucarta™ gave me the ability to add color that I could not get in any other material. Coral has always been the most popular color with our customers, after black of course.
After the success of the Acies and the Acies2, I knew I wanted to design more Frame Lock knives, and to be able to offer them to my customers at every possible price level. I am well aware that not everyone who wants to own an Acies2 can afford to pay as much as it costs.
Browning's Black Label™ series represents a planned and focused move into the world of tactical knives. Historically, Browning® has focused on hunting, everyday carry and collectible knives. This move into tacticals was made with a great deal of planning and the introduction of a complete line of black knives.
John Benner, founder of Tactical Defense Institute, designed the TDI Knife. Using his experience as a 30-year veteran Police Lt. and Vietnam Veteran, he has designed a knife with law enforcement officers in mind.
