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.

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...
Delica Rebuild: Copper, HAP40/SUS410, Signet and Fang
Starting with a nonstandard Delica.
In this case, nonstandard in two ways: it's got HAP40 cored SUS410 clad steel, and a Wharncliffe blade:
That faint line you can see running parallel to the edge is where the SUS410 ends and the HAP40 begins. SUS410 is very stainless and HAP40 is very strong -- it's a Hitachi steel with the same formula as CPM Rex 45. It will patina with light use, unlike the SUS410, which is pretty much just there to be stainless and to keep the core layer from cracking from stress. You can try and stop it if you like, the patina, but most people just let it go -- once a patina forms oxidation of the base steel stops.
To break any knife down I usually start with the clip.
Clip fasteners are nearly always T6. Grab a Torx T6 and undo the clip screws. One of them will probably have some threadlocker on it and will take additional grunt. Not much, tho. Spyderco's generally cool about not daubing on threadlocker like they're...
I'm glad I finally pulled the trigger on (Mass)Drop's Terzuola CTF after 8 months of thinking it over. The knife is well-made, easy to carry, and the blade shape is highly functional. I love Terzuola's mark and the anodized titanium hardware.
I ordered the CTF last December for just $87 using Birdshot IV's $50-off coupon code combined with the site's $25-off promo :)
