A knife is one of mans first tools on earth and for the longest we have been trying to better this tool in all possible ways. From the ergonomics of the knife, steels composition, edge retention, weight distribution, the list never ends on key factors makers are trying to perfect in order to achieve what they believe is the best performing knife. My designs and concepts of what a knife should be is constantly evolving. I incorporate my roots and the urban lifestyle I live into the knives I make. Below are some of my designs and show key benefits as to why the are made the way they are.
The Nanogrid was one of the most unique designs I have created as I initially started by drawing a pyramid on a piece of paper and the pyramid gave birth to the extremely compact Nano design. The Nanogrid incorporates a 2 finger grip combo that uses a lanyard to create the remaining portion of the handle in your palm. The Nanogrid is what I call an international knife as you can travel to almost any country and through any airport with this folder. Regulations cannot restrict your when you carry a Nanogrid. Comfortable in both forward grip and reverse grip makes this an ideal edc tool including for defense situations. Frame lock is made of Milspec 6AL4V titanium and scale side is composed of either 6AL4V, Carbon Fiber, or G10. Blades are made of high carbon steel which are great performers in the knife industry ideal for hunting blades due to its edge retention and durability. Handmade in the USA.
The MCU stands for Multi Chisel Ulu. On a trip to Alaska I came across what is known as an Ulu knife. An Ulu increases dexterity and leverage, making fine cuts simple and chopping easier. I was inspired to make a multi tactical version on the Ulu. The MCU will not fold in your hand due to the large safety choil on the blade. Just grip the knife and you are ready to cut or stab. All MCU's come standard with a chisel tanto style blade or can be requested in a 3/4th grind as pictured.
