Outdoor Edge, a designer and manufacturer of knives and tools for outdoor enthusiasts, handymen and others, has upgraded the classic box cutter found in Dad’s toolbox.

The new B.O.A. (Bow Opening Assistant) is a folding utility knife that is ergonomically comfortable and powerful. With extensive jimping on the stainless steel blade holder, power from the hand is delivered directly to the cutting edge, and the force of the cut goes exactly where intended.

An ingenious yet simple mechanism, a safety-guarded thumb button allows quick and safe blade replacement with the flick of a finger. Constructed of 420J2 stainless steel with a sure-grip textured glass/nylon polymer handle, it’s durable and lightweight.

The B.O.A. has an overall length of 5.75 inches with the blade extended, and folds down to a pocket-friendly 3.6 inches for carrying between uses. Weighing 2.7 oz., the B.O.A. is light enough to be nimble, but it is constructed tough enough to withstand years of use. Available in blaze orange or black, the B.O.A. includes three standard utility razor blades.

Suggested retail price of $16.95.
