From Our Customers
“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.

“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.

“I have already offered what I considered to be constructive criticism. Now I'd like to say how beautiful the design! The knife is practically flawlessly executed! Lines are crisp and elegant, with an action like butter! I can one hand open it with just a rapid down and up motion. Closing it is just too smooth. The back lock functions flawlessly,, no sticking or extra effort. I've been rubbing the stag with some polishing cloth and paper bag and it is starting to develop a great 'used but gently handled' patina.
It is a great hearkening back to times when titanium was only something on the periodic chart of the elements!
Yes, it could be much lighter with ti... but I think it might mess with the time frame/authenticity. I will still carry mine and use it! It is a beautiful example of the knife-maker's art!
[What would I] Change about it? Well, now that you ask, as I have mentioned elsewhere, a chamferring of all bolster exposed edges would be much easier on the pocket and hands! Chamferring the inside edges would eliminate the annoying pains of handling razor sharp metal edges while attempting to avoid the sharp metal edge of the blade. And it would take so little...
Speaking of the blade, what a slicer! Wouldn't it be nice if it would slice more than a sheet of paper before having to resharpen? A bit higher quality steel?
A certain amount of thought goes into ergonomics, lets put some more thought into the end user experience.
