Friction Folders

Friction folders are a favourite in the EDC (every day carry) community as generally they meet the specifications set in UK law for what knife can legally be carried.  My standard and tanto model are EDC UK legal knives as standard, the Goliath can easily be made EDC UK carry friendly at request by having a slightly larger ricasso to allow for a sub 3" blade.

 

From time to time I will have knives available here, but please feel free to contact me to have a truly custom friction folder knife made to your own specifications.

Current wait is 10-12 weeks

 

Standard

A pocket friendly friction folder.  The standard model comes with a stainless steel blade with a sub 3" cutting edge.  The handle materials on this knife are endless with knives out in the wild with both natural and stabilised wood, micarta, G10, Juma, C-tek.  Basically if you have seen something you like, or have a crazy idea I can probably make it happen on this knife.

 

They all come with a veg tanned leather pocket slip, and padded presentation case.

Prices start from £145 and I can ship anywhere in the world.

Goliath

The Goliath is a beast of a friction folder.  This is a knife that makes jaws drop, and is guaranteed to raise a smile.  it has a cleaver shaped blade, and a heavily shaped handle that is comfortable choking up front, or holding in the full hand.  As standard the blade comes in at just over 3" so is not UK legal carry friendly, but this can be adapted by starting the grind further along the blade.  This gives an extended ricasso and brings the cutting edge in at under 3" making for a superb EDC carry blade.

They all come with a padded presentation case.

Prices start from £160 and I can ship anywhere in the world.
