Form Following Function
The newly released James Brand Folsom is an exercise in utility and minimalism. It is stripped of any frivolity, and every detail and feature on the knife has a specific purpose. This is a true example of form strictly following function.
The drop point blade is ground thin, and when combined with the generous belly, it makes for an exceptional slicer. The Carpenter CTS-BD1 stainless steel is corrosion resistant and holds an edge well. The blade is deployed via an ambidextrous cutout, which allows for quick one-handed deployment. Another benefit of the cutout is that it allows for the blade to sit deeper in the body, making for a more compact carry.
It features G10 scales along with a steel liner-lock. The G10 scales provide for a rock-solid grip, while the steel liner-lock is robust, sure and secure. The fit and finish, as expected from The James Brand, is exceptional. Everything is carefully attended to and beautifully crafted.
If you're looking for a blade that exemplifies the values of functionality, you'll be impressed with the Folsom. It's elegant in its simplicity, and breathtaking in its single-minded pursuit for utility. This is a blade that you’ll find in your EDC on the regular.
