What’s the allure of the friction folder?

What are the scales of?

How do you get that color/texture on the blade? Acid, cerakote-type?

Just curious, James

what is the allure? don't know you'd have to ask my customers
my suspicion is not everyone needs a high speed tacticool knife all the time
sometimes a simple knife, just to sit and do a little whittlen is wanted
or open a bottle, or strike a ferro rod
but that would just be my guess, you'd have to ask my customers who have them
i'm sure each of them would give a different reason

scales are g10 on all my friction folders

the blade is acid washed / stone washed,, a forced patina,,,
it's a natural process that helps tie up some of the surface iron
so that its not available for rust,,, doesn't make it rust proof
but simply aids in making it a little less susceptible

curious is good, thank you James

Looks like they would be real hand for filling deer feeders. Pop the cap on a cold one, flip the leaver and slice open a sack of corn... nidea

Or at least that would be a good place to start... cheers

hey Mike, thank you
the bottle opener and 90 degree spine on the tang are mine,, not sure if other people are doing it also or not
but since i had the room in this design, i thought it'd be a nice little additional feature
