An ancient design dating back to Roman times, the friction folder has recently returned to popularity in the EDC community. The design is similar to a straight razor: To deploy the blade, push on the tang. By grasping the spine of the handle, you’ll manually secure the blade—no locking mechanism necessary. The Frikky is knifemaker and machinist Brian Fellhoelter’s take on the age-old design, and it features a bottle opener built into the tang of the 1.9-inch Wharncliffe blade.

Constructed from CPM-154 stainless steel, the stonewashed blade is housed in a textured carbon fiber handle, which strikes the perfect balance of tension. Jimping on the back of the blade provides secure grip and a natural position for the thumb once the knife is opened. Weighing less than an ounce and measuring just over 3 inches long when closed, this compact knife fits great in a pack or in the fifth pocket of your jeans.
After receiving his first Swiss Army knife when he was just 10 years old, Brian Fellhoelter fell in love with folding knives. And when he was given Bob Terzuola’s book on tactical folders in 2005, he developed the background to start making them himself. Known for combining premium blade steel with titanium hardware, Fellhoelter produces some of the most recognized and awarded designs in the modern knifemaking community.
