I designed this knife almost 30 years ago. The one seen here is a Chinese knock-off. The frame-lock is made of stainless steel and the blade is made from series 400 stainless. The entire unit is coated with a preservative similar to Duracoat. I checked the hardness and it and it appears to be 55 -56 Rc. It’s the size of a Car key when folded. It has a good clip on one side which doubles as a money clip. This was designed to be an emergency knife; small but useful. The Chinese version is made with a single bevel and no waverleys (serrations). I modified this unit to provide the 3 serrations.
“Bulldog” Only one available. Modified with serrations. $25.00.
Diamond sharpeners usually mean someone waved a diamond or a photo of a diamond over a whetstone and proclaimed it a diamond sharpener. I’ve wasted hundreds of dollars on these ‘false sharpeners.’ I was reluctant to ‘bite’ again. Fortunately, I did. These portable units are the real deal. The diamond wash is just the right consistency to move from dull to sharp – and then to remove the burrs. There’s a flat side, a round side, a hook sharpening groove. Turn it around in the aluminum holder and you have a ‘rat tail’ for sharpening serrations.
Diamond sharpeners-Three (3) available.
This small automatic I designed as well. The Chinese knock-off missed the basic concept. Small, quick, and designed to cut rapidly. Again, they left off the serrations. They also missed the half-click safety. Although I was proud of this design, I’m not that keen on these Chinese version.
Automatic ‘gentlemen knife’ Two available with standard blade. $19.00 each.
One available; modified with serrations. $25.00.
