There can be no doubt that folding knives sell better than fixed blade knives. They are easy to carry and use day to day. We currently make a friction folder. This is the oldest known design of folding knife and they have been found in Saxon graves in England back to the 9th cent and apparently even older than that 400 A.D. Rome. We will be coming out with a liner locking blade hopefully this summer or fall by the latest along with straight razors. Here are some pics of the recent models. All the blades are made from recycled files. Some over 130 years old. The company was bought out in 1890! Handles are micarta and one is buffalo horn.
