Have you seen the GEC Northfield Templar? It’s about as different as a traditional folder can get. Basically, it’s something of a ren-faire take on a pocketknife, and we love it.
It has a 2” 1095 carbon steel clip point blade with a satin finish and a UN-X-LD coat of arms blade etch. It opens with a forged straight pull. It has a swedge on the spine that’s reminiscent of a swedge one might find on an antique sword.
We are adults with grown up jobs who would never loudly challenge a co-worker to a pretend duel with a slip joint knife that has an overall length of about 4-3/4”. And, of course, we’d also never loudly proclaim, “that’s not fair” when that someone else took us up on the pretend duel and pulled out an Espada XL.
Mounted on a stainless-steel frame, this knife has very pretty acrylic handles accented with unique nickel silver bolsters. The closed length is about 2-1/4” and this knife weighs just under 2 ounces. That means it’s not only a fun different daily carry, it practically disappears in the pocket.
