A little background...
As a knife collector/enthusiast for the last 5+ years now, I have probably had hundreds of knives come through my hands, and I have figured out exactly what I find to be excellent in a folding knife.
I have taken all of those elements and tried to incorporate them in a way that is seamless and original without trying to be the best at everything. The Standard has a lot of those classic looks and features while still bringing its own unique style to the table.
My general design philosophy is to keep things simple while striking a great balance of form & function, and I strive for my designs to be executed to the highest quality possible while still being attainable. When it comes to the design and build of the Standard, the same holds true.
I truly hope you enjoy the Standard!
