I'm new to knives and am confused why this knife is so popular. Anyone care to explain? Thanks
I can't really speak for everyone, but there does seem to be a lot of comments below that may shed some light on the situation.
The reasons why it's so popular are that:
A) First off, Ferrum Forge is a known custom knife maker, meaning that their knives tend to be of extremely high quality with excellent designs and materials. This is a collaboration using a FF design, a third-party manufacturer (WE Knives), and a third-party distributor (Massdrop) which significantly lowers the cost.
B) The materials that they have listed are extremely high quality knife materials. S35VN is a highly regarded steel for edc knives, as is G10 for the handles and titanium for the frame. Just those 3 things together typically are used only in higher-end knives as they are expensive (not so much the G10, but the S35VN and the titanium are). Normally, knives using these materials easily run upwards of $200 USD (see Spyderco and Benchmade knives for comparable prices using these materials). This collaboration is only $80 USD (somehow...)
C) It's an extremely clean design. It's not tacticool, but is a genuine edc knife with the perfect size, look, and materials.
Thanks for clearing this up for me
Agree about the blade steel, s35vn around $80, last knife I purchased with this steel at this price was the House Of Blade exclusive Kershaw Link 1776 made in the USA with Aluminum handle.
For me the 3 inch and under blades I prefer., the Link is 3.25 inches blade. A great knife, in fact the regular USA Verizon is a Nick Shabazz Gem.
Will this be my gentleman knife, no...
That is the slip joint Italian made Fantoni Dweller 2.5 inch mod Wharncliffe in Cocobolo scales but was also around $125.
However my son prefers flippers, so this FF design knife will be a gift
