Ed Brown Knife

So I got an email about this new knife by Jason Knight. He has been one of the judges on Forged in Fire.

I really like this knife. It's a great design. He used aspects from the Kobra Carry in the design. And, just like the KC, it's every thing you need and nothing you don't. Big enough to cut and wield, but small enough to be able to manipulate easily.

I am disappointed though. All the pictures on the website and in the email show it with a leather scabbard. However, the description says it comes with a Kydex sheath. I would be angry if I paid $400 for a knife and it came with a plastic sheath when all the pictures showed leather. Shame on you Ed Brown, you're better than this.

Edit to add:
I guess it was a mistake in how they wrote the narrative. It does indeed come with a molded leather sheath. That sheath has a metal belt clip on a Kydex backing. So, I stand corrected.

I'd be very angry if I paid $400 for a knife period!

Sweet knife. It looks like the same sheath that came with my Winkler/knight.
Molded leather sheath with kydex belt clip. Makes a nice addition to an EB pistol.

Sorry for the typo in our edit on the knife. It has always come with that same molded sheath and I guess somewhere along the way we missed that we had listed it as kydex. Sorry for the mistake, thank you for pointing out our error, please email me anytime you notice an error like this as I am sure you have my email.

Thank you for clearing that up. I didn't know it was an error in the listing. I've been bitten on things like this before so, I guess it was a knee jerk reaction from me. I've edited my original post.

Please accept my apology.

Interesting take. For me, I'm happy to pay a premium for something I'll have for the rest of my life. This is why I have two Ed Brown pistols. Yes, I can buy less expensive pistols, but they're not near the quality.

Certainly no beef with Ed for trying to market a knife.

Their brand, if they want to go this way. They should of course do so. My guess is that it is a quality product. I am not really in the market to purchase a knife from them. I purchase knives from other vendors on a fairly regular basis. But if it brings in business for them, I am all for it. I have several pistols from them that I am really happy with.
