$169.95 MSRP

Technical Specs

Custom knifemakers are more than simply steel junkies. Ed Schempp is a wheat farmer, metallurgist and celebrated knifemaker whose Persian Folder introduces Classic Western with Exotic East. Persian knives traditionally are fixed blades but Ed integrates this indigenous shape into a folding knife. Comprised of graceful curving lines, the new smaller Persian Folder 75mm is eye-catching with black Micarta handle scales capped by polished stainless bolsters. On the handle a series of finger choils position the hand for complete control over the cutting edge. Its Eastern inspired blade arches into a curving belly and ends in a graceful upswept tip. The 2-15/16" (75mm) blade is made of high-performance VG-10 steel (hollow-ground) with a prominent hump positioned above the hole as a thumb leveraging spot. The pocket clip positions the folder to carry right-handed tip-up. A small portion of steel removed from the locking lever offers additional lock safety and is called a David Boye Dent. It permits tightly gripping the handle without grasping with enough force to inadvertently disengaging the lock during use.
