Just a couple of days and the dream of some fans of friction blades will become a reality ...
A classic knife with a friction mechanism and an advanced fastening system. Titanium linings and a retro logo font resemble the early design of the Porsche 356 ... many will like it.
Within a month you can buy this pocket knife here ...
The knife market has long been waiting for an inexpensive unique friction knife.
For 2 days, the knife pretty well raised the money for kickstarter. There are still several samples available for purchase, but the author claims that the series will be very limited due to manual assembly, exactly like retrocars.

Blade material: 440C

This picture shows the solid stainless steel liners. The stop pin is part of the blade, and you can see the liner cutouts behind the rear of the blade that the stop pin rides in.
About a 1/3 - 50% lockup, depending on how hard you flip the blade. There are no cutouts to access the liner lock, you have to wedge your thumb between the stationary liner and the liner lock to unlock the blade. Not as difficult as it sounds.
I like the kwaiken type blade design, but I feel that the Boker Kwaiken is a little too delicate in my large...
Pocket knives are some of my favorite types of knives. They are so unique in terms of designs, versatility, functionality, brands, etc. Each pocket knife is good for certain situations based on their blade type, size, accessories, and materials. I tend to carry cheap pocket knives with me on my hunting and camping trips, as i'm not as afraid to lose them relative to my damascus steel blades. Here are my favorite pocket knives. You can get any of these at frontierblades.com
This first knife is an 8.25" Elk Ridge spring assisted pocket knife. This knife screams heavy duty, and is the best portable hunting knife. I personally use this knife all the time when cleaning and skinning deer. The single edged stainless steel blade is pretty sharp for an elk ridge knife, and is great for making clean and accurate cuts. The simulated bone handle feels pretty good as well, and provides a rather comfortable grip. The great thing about the simulated bone handle is, after several years...
Wherein I have a surprisingly easy time rebuilding an axis locker with copper scales.
Most people know the Benchmade 940 as the 'Osborne'. Widely regarded as one of the best production pocket knives in the world, the Osborne probably isn't new to most of you.
Warren Osborne has actually designed several knives for Benchmade, but this is the one that people call the 'Osborne'. It's a hell of a knife - light, but long, with exquisite balance and a beautifully smooth flip.
As you can see by looking at the variations in texture of the G-10 scales, 940s are subject to a whole lot of finishing work before they leave the factory. The handle gives excellent grip.
I knew I wanted to make a Copper Osborne when I saw the aftermarket scales were available for them... but I'm sort of partial to my 940-1 as is, so I ordered this one, a 940-2 from KnifeWorks. KnifeWorks offers engraving services. I like customizing stuff so I often make use of these sorts of things when a...
We are sick of the same design we've seen on the internet!
Thus we created this POKER CARD with the spectacular design in CARBON FIBER.
What do you think?
We've also created a poll here. Which version you like the most?
~$50 for price I'm looking for a better(smaller) EDC light that I can more easily bring to work when my pockets are pretty full as is. For reference I have an Eagletac D25LC2 clicky, I love a lot about it, the moonlight "secret" low mode is great to start at in low light, and the medium level is just right in my opinion. One of the biggest boons for it is the pocket clip, and size...which is great for an 18650 light but not quite small enough for me most of the time.
Anyways, if there's one must beyond it being small around 18350/cr123 battery size, it's that it have a neutral white LED, not a fan of the cool white...also a deep carry pocket clip as I don't like my eagtac light's tail sticking out. As I'd be using this at work(IT crawling under desks, etc.) max throw isn't the absolute most important thing, but I would like it to be decent.
Beyond that here's a few preferences that boost value to me:
-A nice really low "moonlight mode" ~1 lumen or less and if possible to start...
You can't buy it in stores but you can make your own.
1) Get 1 Skyline with G-10 and 1 set of copper scales for it. These are from Flytanium. The Skyline's the one I bought from Drop.
2) Break it down. The pivot is T8 and the fasteners on the clip and spine are T6.
Don't miss the fact that two fastener bolts are embedded in the thin G10 scale that you need to pop out and then set into the thin copper scale, so the long T6 fasteners running through the spine and backspacer have some steel threads to bite into on the other side. Be aware that these can be tricky to pop out. They're easier to 'rip' out by taking a pair of needlenose pliers and ripping away nearby G10 which of course ruins the old scale, but it won't be usable without the bolts anyway.
Aside from that it's a simple breakdown that I believe I've documented elsewhere on this site already: you're just disconnecting Torx fasteners and the pivot and it all pops apart after that. Here it is all broken...
