This is the only knife that we use on the farm everyone has on in their pocket or tucked in the brim of their hat, so don’t mess with anyone on my farm. The design is stunning, uber simple and extremely functional. The French Steel holds a strong edge that last. The handle is beech wood that takes on a wonderful patina. The metal collar rotates to lock the blade in the open and closed positions. This is the knife the French Foreign Legion uses, how cool is that?
