Product Description

MICKAEL MOING 

I was contacted several months ago by a very good European Customer of mine who was excited to share his new acquisition ~ a Gorgeous Friction Folder from an Aritist in France named Mickael Moing.

When I saw the pictures of Mickael’s work I quickly contacted him and placed an order, he explained it would be a few months as he was just so busy.  True to his word I received the knives and I am extremely glad I was patient enough to wait for the order.

Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer with Mickael Moing


 ~ Direct from the Maker ~

I have seen one of these knives similar to this one, sell on another website for $295

 This is a traditional utility folding knife, what we may call a Friction Folder, the Europeans once called a Penny knife and if Forged the Japanese refer to it as a Higo-no-Kami.

 This entire knife, the Blade and Integral Handle was Hand Forged by Mickael Moing

The blade has an Exposed Rat Tail Tang that is often decorative ~ this folds discreetly back into the Integral handle when open.

The Blade was Forged from 1085 and given a Differential Heat Treat with Visible Hamon which leaves the Edge Hard and the Spine Softer.  Mickael also incorporated Copper and Brass into the exterior of the Blade for amazing artistic effect.

The thick Integral handle with abstract Natural Pattern is one of a kind!

A Robust, Hand Crafted Traditional tool with wonderful artistic attributes.
