From Our Customers
“I've had this Italian-made one hand knife (stag scales) over a year, and it is, very simply, a spectacular knife, I have an original 1980s one-hand knife and I always wished for scales. When this one appeared with stag scales, I went for it. Fit and finish are superb. The blade steel is excellent. It takes an excellent edge with quite reasonable effort on a good sharpener, and holds it for quite a while. This is just a great knife.
Changes: very little, but one small-thing. when closed, the pointed corners at the very end of the spring would benefit from being slightly more rounded. I realize that when open these 'points' make it more flush with the blade, so conflicted on this. no big deal.

“You're folding cuisine knife or kitchen knife. which I love but can't seem to find in your catalogues anymore. Superb finish, wide blade, tapered blade. one-handed opening, very solid lock and easy sharpening.
Changes: The superb finished means that a lot of the edges of the handle a very sharp. These should be rounded off. (This was the only real fault. It made the knife uncomfortable to use because it was stabbing you in the palm of the hand. I wore these edges off with the sharpening stone and then it work fine for me) The blade works well it would be better if it were thined down. And lastly this is a very heavy knife maybe some effort could be put into reducing the bulk of the handle. I looked up a folding kitchen knifes because I travel through hostels and hotels and most knifes you find in them you could sit on. There were only two companies that made such a knife, yours and Boker. Yours for superior but the thinner blade on the boker was an advantage.

“A.G. Russell Funny Folder - This is the third one of these I have owned over the past few decades. I seem to be able to keep one for about ten years before I lose it. I love the design of this knife! It is extremely practical, occupies little space in my pocket, holds an edge for a really long time. Unfortunately, this new one from China has such sharp edges on parts of the handle that it will wear through my pocket in no time. I will have to smooth those out somehow to carry it. I would rate it a "10" if it were not for this problem. Changes: I would pay $10 more if you had it made somewhere other than China. Please hide the word "China" somewhere else so I don't have to see it every time I use my knife. The outer handle is missing one final step in the finishing process: all edges need to be slightly smoothed to keep from wearing holes in my pocket. I will include a photo showing how the sharp handle edges can scrape up fingernail shavings. Rating: 8/10 ”
