Love this! Any info on the maker?

Both fixed blades and folders.

He said it was a custom knife. If you're looking for an affordable friction folder have a look at the Svord peasent knife. I don't own one but I'm really tempted.

Beautiful knife MajorWinter. A non-locking folder makes my fingers squeamish, but I hear locking blades are a no no over in the UK. I guess they prefer you to injure yourself rather than risk someone do it to you.

Thanks to both of you...I will check them out more. I am a fan of the Japanese friction folders known as higonokami but am interested in a more western style as well.

Locking blades are fine, providing you have a reason to have it about your person (self defence is not a legal reason), I normally carry either a Strider SMF at work, or an Emerson CQC7. Of late though I have been carrying the friction folder, which cannot close on your fingers...

Mr Morris was happy to work with me and let me design the knife how I wanted it to look. I would imagine he would be able to work something out with you also.

Go back to harassing 'noobs' in WAYWT.

EDIT: Actually, fuck it. I'm going to start reporting you whenever you thread-shit.

Last year I referred to Jetblast as "jet" by mistake, I think that Jet got his panties in a bunch over that.

I had a knife made that looks a little like an oyster knife, with a finger ring. the blade is not very big, less than 2 inches. I carry it in my front pocket. I like to have a knife around, and I don't like folding knives that much.

I've carried BMs and Spyderco folders for decades and not once have I come close to using one for defensive/offensive purposes. That's not to say that they can't be used that way if necessary. However there are much better choices out there for this purpose. I use a knife to cut things like rope, boxes, branches and my steak from time to time not to mention field dressing small game. BTW how did you come up with saying these blades are hunting weapons? The blade length on these tend to be 3 to 4 inches long.

I carry a knife every single day, using it as a hunting weapon, or stabbing someone with it would be my last thought.

Yes a Swiss Army Knife would do the job, however they are small and very fiddly to open and are of limited use to me. I use a knife for many many things and a SAK just wouldn't do the job.

Opinel no. 7

reliable, cheap and fit in any pocket.
more useful then I ever thought.
post #327 of 485
what's the deal with spyderco's? i never understood their appeal
post #328 of 485
VG-10 steel and good construction and durability for a low price. Personally, I prefer the hole to studs. And the blade shape is sexy.

I really like those friction folders, but do you ever have issues with the bottle opener tang poking you in your pocket?

My dad's got something similar (but custom made many moons ago). I've always wanted something similar.
