The Frontier Folder Knife


The Frontier Folder Knife @2012 Michael H. Mara

This traditional style folding camp knife has a 3" blade of 1/8" 154CM, upswept tip, forged to shape with an as-forged finish, hardened to HRC58. Brass pommel and blade pivot pin with antler body. 7" overall when open. It opens and closes smoothly, and the slots are slightly offset to help it stay firmly open or closed. This is the old style, how folding knives used to be made. A very unique piece. $269 Sold

Note that 154CM is a high carbon, high chromium cutlery steel, so the finish on this knife will stay as is, and won't tarnish nor rust like a simple alloy steel such as 1080 may.

The blade as forged, ready for sharpening and assembly:
