Crafting a workhorse.

With the Folsom we focused on designing a knife that would be at home from the city to the backcountry. Fluid arcs and simple forms give ample gripping power while the extra-slim profile won’t bulk up your pocket like other liner-locks. A triangular thumb hole and reversible clip also allow for left or right-handed configuration.

Folsom Road

I did not respond to your earlier email because I had not received the knife. I received it early last week. I have not had an opportunity to use it yet, but I am impressed by the apparent quality. It is very sharp right out of the box.

Is the clip reversible?

In addition to the quality of the knife, I am impressed with timely delivery and the follow up by James. My chosen title reflects my previous residence, still my billing address, which was destroyed in a forest fire.

The James Brand

Hi Larry!
Thanks for the review! The Clip is in fact reversible. You just need a T6 torx screw driver to get the clip screws out, then you can swap it over to the other side.

The Reigning Champion

I bought my first Folsom some time around when they came out—then I lost it. It was gone for at least a year...then I found it again! But time being a flat circle, the Folsom is back in the "lost" category, so I bought another and I'm keeping this one in the box, a blanket keeping my house warm in metaphysical ways too complex to go into. Two things you need to know about the Folsom: when I got my first one, I liked it so much, I made a painting of it, and the knife is so good I will buy another one even though the old one will doubtless show up.

My second Folsom

I love this knife… it’s a prefect EDC. The Damascus blade on this one just exceeded expectations. Great knife. My only suggested improvement would be have all the hardware match. The clip is polished while everything else was matte black but I’m nitpicking…

Quality knife

The Folsom is an understated quality knife. It feels solid and fits nicely into a pants pocket. It’s sharp too!
