CINCINNATI, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Havalon Knives announces the new Piranta-Torch, an addition to its line of replaceable blade knives for hunting and fishing enthusiasts. The Piranta knives by Havalon have become the hottest-selling new knives for hunters and fishers in the USA because with Havalon, there's no more sharpening. When blades go dull, just snap on a new one and go.

The Piranta-Torch features the newly-designed #60A blade which is 20% thicker and stronger than the standard #60XT blade while still delivering the famous Havalon "crazy-sharp" surgical edge. The #60A blade also features an "easy-off" safety tab to make removing blades from the handle easier while keeping fingers away from the cutting edge. "We expect customers to be excited about the thicker blades, and also to learn that the Torch accepts three sizes of blades: #60A, #60XT and #22XT" says Paul Schwartz, division sales manager.
The Piranta-Torch, like all Piranta knives, is extremely light in the pack, weighing only 2.1 ounces. Yet the Torch features a rugged 6061-T6 aluminum alloy handle. Blade length is 2-3/4" while overall length is 7-3/8." The Torch comes in three colors: Light Copper, Lime Green and Brick Red. Each knife includes black rubber grip inserts, an open back for easy cleaning, ambidextrous thumb studs, liner lock and a removable pocket clip.
Havalon Knives began in 2005 with the release of the Piranta series of skinning knives with Quik-Change™ blades. Havalon has since become popular with hunters, trappers and taxidermists due to their true surgical sharpness and extremely light weight. Havalon's replaceable blades eliminate the need to carry heavy skinning knives, sharpeners and whetstones into the field. More information can be found at www.havalon.com.
