Elk Ridge ER-A003 Folding Knife Product Review

The Elk Ridge ER-A003 Folding Knife is spring-assisted, so it is easy to use even if it’s your first time working with a folding knife.

This is because it uses a liner lock mechanism, so you can be sure that the blade will lock securely in place and be safe to hold. Simply press the liner lock towards the left side of the knife, and push the blade closed, and your knife will be folded down to a compact size.

It measures 4.75 inches when closed, which is ideal for storing comfortably in your pocket or backpack for easy access. However, it is surprisingly quite heavy given its small size, weighing 7.2oz. At this weight, you’ll definitely feel it in your pocket even if it will inside.

It is a 440 stainless steel blade, so it should hold up well against potential corrosion and rust after prolonged use. The blade is a thick 3.2mm, so it will slice through many obstacles sharply and accurately.

At a budget-friendly price, this folding survival knife is a great choice that will perform well in a variety of survival situations. Its durability and design gives you good value for money and is definitely a product to consider.
