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.

  • Magnus says:

    Any questions or comments, then let me know…

    • Ollie says:

      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

  • Emanuel says:

    What type of steel are you using Magnus and why?

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

  • Steve Adams says:

    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 …?

  • Donald Perreault says:

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

  • Mike Mendez says:

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

  • Kent Leslie says:

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

  • Bob Gelb says:

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

  • William says:

    Looks fantastic! well done Magnus.

  • Hunter says:

    Id do anything for this lil guy, i badly need a small edc knife. #giveme1forfee.

  • F-J says:

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

  • Jim Herring says:

    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.
