This friction folder is the simplest form of pocketknife, having no springs or locking mechanisms. A stop pin prevents the blade from opening or closing too far, but has free range of motion everywhere in between. The blade is hammer forged from high carbon steel, hollow ground, then hardened and tempered as required. Each friction folder comes with a leather pocket sheath, which prevents the blade from opening in your pocket. The blade has a blackened forged finish near the spine that reveals the hammer marks from forging. The pins are peened and the action will be very tight, however it will loosen up over time with use.
