We have developed a new ordering method for the newly-released Wayfarer 247CF. This is our long-running Wayfarer 247 model, but for the first time with a non-titanium show side. We have opted for various styles of Fatcarbon carbon fiber for its durability and consistency. All 247CFs will have the latest blade shapes in CPM S90V. … Continue reading Wayfarer 247CF Livebuild
Our new Appetizer model is a fidget-friendly non-locking folder that’s just shy of 4.5″ overall with a sub-2″ blade. In addition to many of our style and finish options this model also includes a modular backspacer component.

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
We just released a new lanyard bead to go with our latest Whippersnapper model. The idea was to have something to symbolize the meaning behind what a whippersnapper is and so for inspiration we used the popular purple devil emoji: 😈 . For more photos of the end result, more details, and to purchase you … Continue reading New Lanyard Bead!

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
A few times a year we make a few of these neck knives. They are mini fixed blades in a number of different designs.

We very … Continue reading Stag Neck Knives

Every once in awhile we like to make something different, or at least new to us. In a way it’s something to challenge us. This particular batch of fixed blades is the latest iteration in that endeavor. We wanted to have that classic style of matching wood sheath and handle. Here we are using Hornbeam … Continue reading Tanto w/ Matching Sheath
In 2016 we released our first bead, the Skullhunter Owl, to a great reception of both knife and non-knife people. Today we are following up with another bead design, but this time a bat.

This coating is applied via vapor deposition and is extremely durable. As is it is matte and non-reflective and on top of that we can also do a … Continue reading PVD Finish for Wayfarer 247
We have received hundreds of requests for a smaller model. It’s said go big or go home… so we did, except we went small. The Busker has a 2.25″ blade that’s deployed via front flipper or blade cutout. This means it’s legal everywhere and makes for a perfect EDC. On top of its practical size, … Continue reading Busker: New Design
Olamic began in 2010 with handmade Damascus hunting knives forged and built in Russia. We have always been proud of our in-house steel, specifically High Carbon Vanadium Damascus (H.C.V.D.) and its various patterns. In 2013 we expanded into folding knives and began using modern powder metals while our line of hand-forged fixed blades continued to … Continue reading Long Time Coming
