If Ziggy Stardust had a pocket knife, he would be carrying the Wingman. It took Sam Abdelrahman, founder of HEAdesigns, 2 years of prototyping to arrive at the final design. The result is a futuristic take on the everyday folder that bears the unmistakably iconic HEAdesigns styling.
The HEAdesigns Wingman began as an exploration of the futuristic aesthetic, of advanced machines and technology. Sam wanted to create something that represented the speed of light. He drew inspiration from all around him, from soaring eagles to racing cars, and drew from them design cues that hinted at breakneck speed and cutting-edge performance.
After countless iterations, the final form of the HEAdesigns Wingman integrates tons of innovative features that have never been attempted. It features full cutouts through the entire design, 3 different grind angles on the blade that mirror 3 corresponding angles milled into the 3D wrapped handle, cleverly hidden hardware with a full-length milled spacer. Also present are the signature HEA touches such as a fully hidden blade, matching thematic pocket clip as well as a stunning two-tone blade.
As good as it looks, the titanium-chassis HEAdesigns Wingman is built to be used. It’s perfectly sized for a versatile everyday carry, and the S35VN wharncliffe blade allows for excellent utility cutting and edge retention. According to Sam, “In terms of usability, I’ve been carrying the prototype for two years. I feel like I know this blade better than any other before.” An inordinate amount of thought, care, and effort has been poured into the creation of this HEAdesigns folding pocket knife, and that’s why we are certain this one-of-a-kind evolutionary blade will soon become your everyday go-to knife.
