Locking Pocket Knife With Modern Look and User-Friendly Design Available From GearWrench

SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2016) - GearWrench®, an innovative hand tool brand known for tools that deliver speed, strength and access to automotive technicians, today announced the introduction of a new locking pocket knife (SKU 82882). Designed for all-purpose cutting, the 3 1/8-inch, drop point style blade has a modern look and stays sharp for tough cutting jobs.

The user-friendly knife is equipped with dual thumb studs for fast and easy opening by either hand, while a full-metal frame provides increased rigidity. The spring-assisted opening feature allows the blade to open and lock into place quickly and the smooth curve of the blade makes it easy to sharpen.

"This locking pocket knife was designed with performance, value and reliability in mind," said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench. "The titanium coating on the stainless steel blade of the GearWrench Locking Pocket Knife is three times harder than steel, resulting in a longer product life."

A slim, ergonomic handle allows for maximum comfort while cutting. The knife also includes a reversible pocket clip and a built-in lanyard ring.
