Designing a folder you can't refuse
more_vert
Hey everyone, Emrose represents a couple ‘firsts’ for Drop: It’s our first knife inspired by a stiletto blade profile, our first knife with inlays in the handle, and our first time working with Matt Degnan. The history of the stiletto dates back a long time, but their popularity in the modern era can be attributed to US soldiers returning home from Europe, and subsequent depictions in movies as the go-to knife for (Italian) gangsters. Naturally, that made every rebellious teenager in the 1950s want one more. Most people think of these knives as ‘switchblades’ and for the most part, they’re right - that’s one more reason why Emrose stands out: it opens manually via flipper tab, instead of automatically via spring as an “out-the-side” (OTS) or “out-the-front” (OTF) folder. While the stiletto does have some rather unsavory history in its origins, Emrose is a highly refined design that is much less likely to conjure those images many people have of little black switchblades. With anodized titanium liners and micarta or carbon fiber inlays, this presents more like a gentleman’s folder. Originally the stiletto was long and pointy with a little edge, made for knights in combat aiming to stab through each other’s armor. Emrose keeps the long, straight, slender design elements of yesteryear, but trades the thin tip for a full edge that’s really useful for common tasks like trimming threads, slicing food, opening letters and packages, etc. Matt was a pleasure to work with and I think he did an incredible job updating a classic profile for modern everyday carry. We hope you like the result. Let us know what you think in the discussion! Carry On — Jonas Heineman Drop Studio Team, Blades/EDC

Should be available for purchase after the initial run, which has shipped. They are probably running into delays due to COVID

Ya'll should make an automatic option, and just ship it to the 40 states where it's legal. Contrary to popular belief, even Amazon's selling legit OTFs these days. 8)

What do you mean “legit”? That’s a knock-off microtech

Oh, perfectly valid response. I’m an IP litigation guy, so believe you me when I say I despise knock-offs. I just meant that they’re selling real switchblades on Amazon now.

If possible, please consider making the blade double-edged.
