One of the most decorated knives of all time is back.
The Snap Lock held the knife globe in rapture when it won the Most Innovative Knife Award in the 2004 Blade Show. We’re breathing new life into this unique everyday carry folder. If you believe it may be all show and no substance, spend a mere minute with it and you will do a 180° swing yourself.
To start, simply press on the front cam lever mechanism with your thumb and then rotate the blade outward until it fully extends and securely clicks into position. To close the knife, then press down on the cam lever to disengage then swing the blade straight back into the closed position. When the blade is in the closed position, no component of the edge is exposed and the knife is more secure to carry.
From his store in Abingdon, Virginia, Ed Van Hoy dreamed up this historical design. It’s not just one of the very unique knives available on the current market, but it’s one of the very useful–it includes a money clip and is remarkably low profile so it’s never a burden to have on hand.
The stainless steel blade has a subtle drop point form. The distinctive open mechanism gets immediately intuitive as soon as you push back on the front cam lever subsequently rotate the blade outwards for a full 180°. The handle includes a 1 position pocket clip for convenient transport.
This knife made background, put your hands on a piece of Ed’s legacy with the Snap Lock reissue.
