We are working on a small batch of our custom linerlocks, this time with CTS-XHP blade steel. So far this is limited to the Wayfarer Classic (4″ blade) model. Contact us directly or fill out the build your own form if you’re interested and want to get started.

Following the similarly styled Wayfarer 247 (August 2019) and Busker (May 2019), the latest limited exclusive with CountyComm is the Whippersnapper. This variant is limited to just 24 pieces in each blade style and is serialized xx/24 (on the inside, unlike standard Whippersnappers). The main distinguishing feature is three prominent curved fullers in show side … Continue reading Whipsnap CC Limited

Today we are launching our latest folding knife, the Whippersnapper. It’s a follow-up front-flipper to the Busker, also designed by Andrey Kolesnikov. This one will be available with American-made CPM 20CV steel from Crucible metals and feature our proven framelock DNA. The pocket clip has been updated to a full 3D design that offers easier … Continue reading Whippersnapper Launched

One of the most sought-after exotic steels is Bertie Rietveld’s Damascus. Perfected over decades, his steel is unique and offered in very limited quantities. We scored some at Blade Show and used it for a matching set of knives pictured here. You’ll see that there are two different patterns, they are called “Dragonskin” and “Nebula”. … Continue reading Exotic Damascus

After working with an outside contractor for Gunkote application we decided to bring the process in-house. So far we are very happy with the results and can offer quicker turnaround time. We decided to use 2400 Series Gunkote (by KG Industries) after experimenting with a number of other coatings.

Just in time for Blade Show we completed a few knives with a brand new steel. What you’re seeing is our proprietary in-house High Carbon Vanadium Damascus but with Mokume-style layers of copper and nickel. This is a new process for us that took months and months of trial and error to formulate. Just a … Continue reading Mokume Damascus

We are in a new location this year: booth #607. It’s our first time having a booth instead of a table and when this spot became available we couldn’t say no. This year we are planning to officially release the new Rainmaker framelock as well as announce two other new models. If you are attending … Continue reading Blade Show 2019

This knife will have the same DNA as our other framelocks with features like a caged bearing system, floating backbar, all titanium construction, and M390 blade. Blade Options (June 2019) … Continue reading Rainmaker Framelock

We have recently added a brand new Hand Carved Series. It is called Art Homage and the idea here is to use hand carving to pay respect to famous art styles, images, painters, sculptors, and the like. The first such piece is a Busker pictured here. It is done in Art Nouveau style, paying homage … Continue reading Art Homage

A limited run of compound grind Tanto and Sheepscliffe blades for the 247 is now available. This is a hollow grind and the style is inherited from our original linerlock Wayfarer and Wayfarer Compact models. You can use the Wayfarer 247 build form to reserve yours.

Pictured here is the biggest fixed blade that we’ve made. This tanto sword is 19″ overall with an 11.5″ blade. The steel is our High Carbon Vanadium, sandwich’d on carbon steel. Handle is hornbeam wood matching the sheath with an HCVD bolster. This is the only made so far and it sold after being posted … Continue reading We made a sword

We just completed a batch of our fixed blades. These are fully handmade and all feature our in-house Damascus. There are two main types: High Carbon Vanadium Damascus (HCVD) and Nickel Carbon Mosaic Damascus (NCMD). This time we’ve incorporated a number of rare and challenging patterns on Voykar HT, Voykar Scout, Suna, and utility skinner … Continue reading New Fixed Blades

We wanted to make something fun and have had this idea for awhile. The pocket axe was first shared via a playful giveaway on instagram (link) and then revealed fully (link). After an overwhelming response we knew that it was time to bring this project to reality. It will be released in October, sign up … Continue reading Pocket Axe
