Outdoor Edge® Receives Big Rock Product Showcase Award for the New VX2 Advanced Carry Knife

DENVER (Jan. 12, 2024) ⎯ Big Rock Sports announced the winners of its prestigious Product Showcase Awards at the spring show held January 6-8 in Nashville, TN. Outdoor Edge’s new VX2 was awarded Best Knife and Tool. The category winners were chosen based on the participating retailers’ individual votes on each product. This ensures that the New Product Showcase winners are a true indication of the “best of the best” in each product category. Each winner, including Outdoor Edge, was recognized, displayed their winning product, and awarded in their category.

“We are truly honored to receive this type of recognition from our customers,” said Will Morgan, Director of Marketing and Product Management. “We are dedicated to offering market-leading innovative products to our valued customers. For decades, the Outdoor Edge brand has been a known leader in replaceable blade knives for the hunting market. We are now taking that technology and new materials beyond hunting with this new line of Advanced Carry Knives designed for the millions of consumers who carry a knife daily. 

“We thank everyone at Big Rock for recognizing this innovation. We will continue to bring our customers the best products,” said Morgan.

The VX2 is one of seven knives in the new Outdoor Edge Razor VX line. With more than 1,500 dealers voting, the Outdoor Edge VX2 won the title of Best Knife and Tool over Kershaw, Schrade, SOG, Gerber, and others. 

Merging functionality with aesthetics and style, OE’s new Razor VX knives seamlessly integrate the company’s patented replaceable blade system into an elegant everyday carry knife. This innovative approach effectively addresses the perennial issue of sharpening or touch-ups, freeing users to focus on their passions.

This new lineup of Advanced Carry knives features an assisted opening mechanism that can be operated with one hand. Convenient, useful, and quick, spring-assist open knives can be opened rapidly by simply pushing the thumb stud or flipper, making them a powerful, quick-response, one-handed opening tool — very much like automatic knives but they don’t suffer from all the same legal restrictions. These new Advanced Carry knives are beautiful to carry and show, but nothing meets the challenge better if you need a blade in a hurry.
