Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a dealer for Serge Panchenko
~ Direct from the Maker from Blade Show 2017 ~
Serge has brought another of his extremely clever smaller knives to market, this is a Friction Folder with a nice Detent semi Lock that he calls the Thorn
A Friction Folder is the oldest of folding knife designs, ancient Friction Folders have recently been discovered in Rome where they were a standard item for men of wealth and privilege!
The action on this knife is VERY Smooth. It has not one, but two Detents that serve a purpose.
While this one is a Friction Folder it also has a Detent on the Inside of the Tension Bar that helps the blade stay in the open position, while not quite a lock it is a nice innovation.
The blade of this friction folder is made from CPM154. The size of the handle insures room enough for a Three Finger Grip, also the Full Titanium scales have custom 3D Circles on the front to help improve the grip of the knife.
The action just right on this knife, the pivot can be loosened or tightened but this one is perfect the way it is.
The extended Tang sits completely down into the handle to insure a comfortable grip. Plus the Clip can be used to clip the knife to your pocket or as a Money Clip to hold your Cash.
An affordable well built knife that has amazing versatility.
