Outdoor Edge Introduces the RazorWork Utility/Work Knife in 2.5-inch Blade

DENVER – When Outdoor Edge, the leader in replaceable blade knife technology, introduced the trendsetting RazorWork™ Utility/Work knife in 2020, it offered a reliable, safe 3-inch utility blade with Outdoor Edge’s patented RazorSafe® blade change system. Answering its customers’ demands, for 2023 the RazorWork is now available in a more compact 2.5-inch blade option.

Like the 3.0 RazorWork, this new compact workhorse knife has been made from Japanese 420J2 stainless steel that has been heat-treated and hand-finished to achieve a long-lasting razor-sharp edge. The straight edge design of the utility blade transfers power directly to the cutting edge, making this a great knife for tradesmen and everyday carry, offering a huge cutting advantage when compared to a standard utility blade. When the blade dulls, it can be quickly and safely exchanged with a push of a button for a new blade thanks to the proprietary Outdoor Edge RazorSafe system. The blade is securely seated in a black oxide coated steel blade holder, providing the strength of a traditional knife. The handle is constructed from a lightweight, one-piece, non-slip glass/nylon polymer. Each RazorWork knife comes with two utility blades and is compatible with all 250 blades from Outdoor Edge.

The new 2.5-inch RazorWork is now shipping to retailers across the country and is currently available online at for a suggested retail price of $30.95. For more information on this product and the full line of products from Outdoor Edge visit or  Click Here.

What do the numbers mean?

New for 2023, you will notice all RazorSafe blades and blade holders are marked with a number. This is put in place to ensure you purchase and pack the correct blades. Packaging will not only have the number system but will also have a color-coded system matching knives and blades – just another way to ensure that everyone is getting an accurate match of knife and replaceable blades.
