    Honestly, I don't really care about the whole kitchen folder thing. It just a badass looking folding knife. As others have stated, if I have access to a sharp kitchen knife or a dull one and a sharpener, logic dictates using that over any folder. But that misses the whole point. The point is this thing is cool, and if you prepare food with it, sure it might be 'suboptimal' but it will be more awesome-er. It might be harder to clean and not perform as well as a good chef's knife, but since when does much about knife collecting make sense? I sure don't drive a manual car because it's easier and optimal for my needs. I drive it because a perfectly timed downshift puts a smile on my face an automatic never could.

    They should change the name because a few people are just not getting it. They cannot make the connection that a knife called the Military can be something for other than THE Military for example.

    You are very likely right that it would be a good idea to change the name, and to instead market this knife as a very nifty general use EDC, as well as a kitchen knife.
    Personally, I enjoy using my Spyderco to do kitchen duty when employing a true kitchen knife would usually be more effective. It's just that the kitchen work is a rare opportunity to use the Spyderco.

    I plan on using it like I use my Military. Food prep is done at times, but isn't a main task.

    A Military is a decent kitchen utility knife, but a poor chef knife

    That AG Russelll Folding Cook's knife mentioned above is their company's second best-selling knife of all time.

    You're welcome. I'm usually immune to the charms of non-Spyderco knives, but this model is very tempting...most of my knife use is in the kitchen.

    Aside the polemics of using a folder in the kitchen( i do it quite often even if i have well maintened and dedicated kitchen knives), i think the design itself is really interesting as folders with knuckles clearance allowing to contact a cutting board with a large portion of the edge are rather rare and something that some of us could need even outside of the kitchen, at least i do...

    I dont like framelocks, so i would be reluctant to buy it but i would be pleased with any knife designed with that knuckle clearance and angled edge i also love the blade shape.

    I'd like to see a lightweight version of this with a H1 blade. I love H1 for kitchen duty when I'm not at home. I've ruined knives before by cutting salty or acidic foods and not remembering or being able to clean the blade properly afterwards. Wether you're cooking at a party or in the wild it's nice to be able to hold off on proper cleaning until you get home.

    I bought one of these at the Blade Show last year from A.G. Evidently, the celeb-Chef Alton Brown helped him design it. The design is pretty cool, the ergonomics are great, and the knife is stout with a 3mm blade, bolsters and G10.

    I thought it would be super useful on campouts, at the grill, etc. However, I don't find myself using it very much. After I've gotten it greasy/juicy, I really don't want to fold it up and slip it back into my pocket - yuck. So I keep it in my summer camp grub kit and will use it for food prep there. The great thing is that you can fold it closed after use so that you don't have to leave a large chef's knife open around the outdoor cooking area. Safety first.

    I do want one of those AG Russell folding chefs knives...it isn't a huge priority but I dig the design. Probably be more of a camping type thing...but it would make my camp cooler than the rest (like it wasn't already...)

    The Catcherman works great. Light and takes up very little space when folded. Nothing I'd carry in my pocket though.

    The knife in this thread is mostly cool and will be used for everything.. (a little food cutting as well..)

    unless you left the knife uncleaned for seven years I highly doubt you ruined it.

    I am confident I could leave a carbon steel knife untouched outside all winter and get it back to usable in fifteen minutes. people really over exaggerate just what happens when they get a bit of corrosion on a knife...

    I think that trying to market something as a folding kitchen knife would be tough, as it has no advantages over a fixed blade kitchen knife. That being said, this is a beautiful knife that I feel could hold its own without a gimmicky premise.

    dragging this one out. Thanks for the link to AG's folding kitchen knife 2. I used to own the folding hocho - it was great, far greater than any kitchen knife folder, including KW's ryback (too thick for real kitchen work and the the choil reduced the working edge by 25%). I do agree about practicality of folding kitchen knives but they're cool as hell at the barbie's, for the folder guys. I do use my FFG to cut a little food at camp cookouts or gatherings...just clean it up with water and some dishwashing liquid, dry it off and it's good to go. A lock back design isn't the best for this purpose though, an open back framelock is better.

    I love Marcin's design, but the knuckle clearance needs to be factored in. I personally like at least 2" wide baldes for kitchen work.
