    Great. I like the plain backspacer. I look forward to getting one of these. And I like how this knife continues the unique Olamic aesthetic. Thanks.

  2. […] These are all one-offs, hand-carved. We’ll also have prototypes of the recently announced new Appetizer model. And of course a small selection of show specials. And if you’re attending feel free to leave […]

    These look very interesting.

    Due to the tiny size and low grind, I would prefer the blade to be of thinner stock though.

    Love the design, like a folding kiridashi. The bottle opener is just outstanding. Are you planning on a lefty version eventually?

      we should be able to do our handmade 3d clips reversed like we do on 247s/Buskers. and there’s no lock so that’s a done deal already.
