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


 Just Received ~ Direct from the Maker  

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

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

When the blade is opened the exposed Tang folds back into the handle and then the Thumb rests on it to help keep the blade in place.

  The Blade was Forged from 1085 and given a Differential Heat Treat with Visible Hamon which leaves the Edge Hard the Spine Softer.

The thick Integral handle has been carved into a Bamboo pattern which extends onto the Spine of the Blade as well.
