Browning has released a new folding knife design, and it's a pretty creative concept. Inspired by the utility knives and box-cutters found on job sites throughout the world, the new Browning Speed Load uses interchangeable blades for instant adaptability. Rather than carrying different knives, or making do with a single blade that's not ideal for every scenario, now you can swap one blade for another in the field.

Better yet, it can accept the standard utility blade design found in most hardware stores, so you'll always have a supply of sharp blades on hand. And, if the other three blades become dull, replacements can be purchased without altering the rest of the knife or relying on sharpening tools.
Here are the rest of this blade's specifications:
