SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2016) - Wiss, a 168-year-old brand known for durability and performance, today announced the introduction of a new folding pocket knife. Designed for ease of use, the tanto style blade features a piercing tip and includes serrated and straight cutting edges for maximum cutting capabilities.

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 open allows the blade to open and lock into place quickly. The Folding Pocket Knife has a 3.125 inch blade.

"The new folding pocket knife was designed with performance, value and reliability in mind," said Griffin Biering, senior product manager for Wiss. "The titanium coating on the stainless steel blade of the Wiss Folding Pocket Knife is three times harder than steel, resulting in a longer product life."

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