I just got a new knife from Thompsonís Scandinavian Knife Supply. †Itís a very, very highly praised folder from Enzo, the Birk 75. The blade is a hair under 3Ē of D2 (Rc 61) with a true Scandi grind (no secondary bevel) †The scales are high grade Curley Birch. Fit and finish on this baby are as good or better than any custom Iíve ever seen. It comes shaving sharp. You can also get CPM S30V and scales in either G10 or Carbon Fiber. Scales are removable and exchangeable. Some are fitted with a nice Titanium bolster. Itís also available with a Flat Grind.

Just for scale...closed, itís 4Ē.

This has become my instantly favorite EDC.

Know that with true Scandi and Flat ground blades the edge is not intended for hard materials. Theyíre designed for dat to day chores and excel at whittling of softer woods. These are also considered as a perfect bushcraft folder (Iíd say backup as opposed to primary) but to me it better makes a gentlemanís EDC.

They are listed as being made in Finland in some places and Taiwan in others.

Yeah, itís nice.

Those arenít my photos...theyíre stock pics. But my knife looks very close to the same.

óóóóó

I should post some pics of some of my newer acquisitions...super budget, high quality Chinese folders. Itís absolutely amazing what $15 - $20 will buy.

That has to be one of the most gorgeous folders Iíve ever seen BH! Just texted a picture to my wife... Iíve no doubt sheíll get the hint, itís whether or not she chooses to ignore it! Razz
Please do post pics of your other acquisitions!
Great score!
