NEW Titanium Knife (“Friction Folder”)

Yes, the rumours are true...

I'm just about to launch a NEW knife - here's a little video I just uploaded on it:

​In the video above I mention a new website I've created specifically to launch this NEW knife. The website is: www.EpicMake.com

One more thing (before I get into some details on this knife):

The reason for mentioning this new EpicMake website is because I want to keep this knife separate to my main MagnusX.com website ...because I have a feeling I'll be making more knives.

​Right, onto the good stuff...

The knife below is the final prototype of something I've been working on in the background for a little while.

I should be launching it on Kickstarter in the next day or so (yes, that soon!). The project has been approved by Kickstarter - and so I now just need to buckle down and put the project page together.

​The knife is a friction folder and has some cool features - including:

  • ​Titanium scales (these are pocketed out from the inside to reduce weight ...it's all about the "little details"!)
  • ​Pocket clip integrated into the blade
  • ​Ultra-practical "finger choil" (that's the semi-circle between the handle and the blade where you can place your index finger)

​Here's a little bit of the "behind the scenes" of the making of the knife (prototyping, etc.):

​And that's all I have for you today I think.

​This knife is something I personally wanted for myself ...and so, selfishly, it's made exactly how I want it (how arrogant is that! :-P).

In saying that, from past experience of other products I've designed, there is a good chance others will like this design also ...hence the Kickstarter launch for it. And, well, I've REALLY been wanting to make a folding knife for a long time now.

​If you have any comments or such then fire away.

    Does it have a locking mechanism and if not (which is presumably the case), how easy or otherwise is it for the blade to fold back

What type of steel are you using Magnus and why?

When is this folder available. I want to sell them here in Europe

There is no mention of the knife blade alloy.

If this is a knife, aren’t we supposed to be a bit interested in how well it will cut, how long the edge will retain its sharpness, how difficult the edge is to resharpen …?

    Did you hear Magnus state this is a sneak preview? I am sure those details will come on the new website http://www.EpicMake.com. Give the man a chance, those details may not have been decided yet.

    It pains me to say this… but based on the video it appears the blade is in fact Titanium…..

I can’t wait Magnus. Any idea on a shipping date?

Excellent craftsmanship! It would be nice to add a locking feature.

I actually started watching your youtube channel because of your video on designing a folding knife. I stayed for the jet powered skateboard.

The handle is titanium…what is the metal used in
the knife blade?

hello there is a question … is the knife locked in the closed state? or is this determined only by tightening the screw?

I’m in! I’m diggin’ this design. I’ve been fan of friction folders for a while, and this looks like a particularly well-thought-out design (as I would expect). I love the idea of integrating a pocket clip into the tang…don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.
