It always makes us grin when we come across a new brand of pocket knife, so we were glad to discover Sarge. We’re not sure how long they’ve been around, but their small and relatively practical lineup leans a bit towards sports knives. The classy looking SK-403 gives us reason to stop and take a look.
The 403 measures three inches, with a 1-3/4″ clip point and 1-3/4″ razor — nothing special there. But take a look at the burl wood handle and glance at the price, and it starts to get interesting. At just under $11 it costs a lot less than you’d expect for a knife with these features. Even if it’s junk, it might be worth the money to find out.
If it’s not junk, then you just scored a great blade for almost nothing. If it isn’t up to spec, then you just scored a burl-handled shop knife –- which isn’t a total loss either.
