Gambit

Jun, 13 2016
Background
Early in 2015 we realized that our custom line up needed a smaller knife. That year our table at Blade Show was right next to Serge Panchenko, whose shop in California is a couple of hours away from ours. We started talking and decided to collaborate on the Gambit, the 4th custom folder out of our shop. Serge’s peculiar yet attractive design is a perfect platform for a smaller handmade knife for either carry or collecting. To date we have made only 58 pieces and each one is unique.
Construction
We use zero CNC machining to make the Gambit. After cutting blade and liner outlines, everything is done by hand or on a manual mill. Wayfarers are full custom and are built one at a time by our expert team in Visalia, CA. The blades are hand-ground and handles are always contoured.
Ordering
There are tens of millions of ways to build a Gambit. Please take a look at the gallery below for some inspiration. To order one, fill out the build form (coming soon) or reach out to us by e-mail with what you had in mind. At the moment we are using CTS-204P blade steel. The liners are always titanium, but everything else can be customized. If you have a desired theme or favorite material, let us know and we can suggest a build that you're guaranteed to like.
