Friction folders have increasingly gained in popularity. The extremely simple design of the mechanism does away with any form of locking or spring and features a freely hinged blade. The exposed blade spike when closed is not only used to easily deploy the blade, but represents a thumb rest when used, thus providing a level of operational safety similar to a lockable knife. Bastinelli applies this century-old principle to a modern-day pocket knife that without question meets the demands placed on a modern-day tool for everyday use. The blade is made from trusted Böhler N690 and features a clip. Shipped with a quiver pouch made from antiqued hide.
