    This is a large version of our small Friction folder ;) it has an oil impregnated bushing, a bolted pivot (so you can control tension on the blade), a 3.125" blade (5.25" if you include the tang bar bottle opener) and a 4.5" handle. Blade is 5/32" 1095 and the handle is course textured black G10 with an orange back spacer. The blade has a hollow grind with a convex edge.
    Thanks for looking guys, feed back is always welcome :) (sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, better picture will be uploaded when i finish cleaning up the blade and adding logo.)

    That's hot! A hollow grind convex sounds like a real slicer!

    That is a damn fine looking fricky!
    Nice proportions and design.
    I like friction folders, but many of them are ugly and not real functional looking, but you took care of that problem.
    Nice work man, real nice.

    I was lucky enough to pick up one of these from Brian a few months back. I don't think he really wanted to let it go, it was his personal user, but I gave him the puppy dog eyes and also had my 12 year old son ask too. The oil impregnated bushing is a very cool feature. The blade will not migrate open but smoothly deploys when commanded. The curvature of the handle flows into the blade and just melts in your hand and boy is it sharp. Grab one if you can, you won't regret it. Thanks guys for putting out these great tools at affordable prices.
    Joe

    We appreciate that Joe, and glad you are enjoying your knife :) (and it was the puppy dog eyes that really did it for me lol)

    Really like the design. The orange makes a nice contrast with the black. And that bottle opener feature? Sweeeet.
