WORK & CASE STUDIES
In fishing knives, the name of the game is full tang knives versus partial tang knives. Full tang knives, which extend the blade all the way through the handle, are much stronger and more durable than partial tang knives. However, manufacturers of both types of knives used a similar, solid rubber handle that provided strong grip but covered up the distinguishing quality of tang.
Using a TPU insert mold we were able to include a see-through window in the back of the handle that allowed users to see the full tang of the knife while continuing to providing the necessary grip and ergonomics. In addition, users could also see that the knife was made with titanium through the window. With the knife’s best characteristics on full display, we sought even more ways to change the game and make Cuda knives the best on the market. Check out all the breakthrough innovations we made in our case study video.
Launching in Spring 2014 at the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST) our product line won a best of show award and generated a host of purchase orders. Currently, the knives are still in back order due to a consistently high level of demand.
