When I very first started buying knives as a kid at school, many of them were traditional folders. Then I became a teenager and did uni and stuff, so knives took a back seat
As I got into being a grown-up in later years and had more disposable income, my collecting went scatter-gun...........and now I have come full circle and really very much enjoy traditional folders.
There appears to be a growing number of members who like these traditionals too, and together with makers like Paul @mason knives producing utter stunners that belong on the world stage alongside the big names, the momentum for these types of folders, though slow here in UK, is growing well.
And, this morning @Paul W posted this very nicely done vid about a Pena Zulu Spear - explaining some of his history and also the reasoning behind ergonomics of these folders.
So, please, if you've any stuff you'd like to include/share/ask about traditional folders - both custom and production - please post here.
