There are a few figures in knife history known as the “father of tactical knives”. Custom knifemaker Bob Terzuola is widely regarded as one of those historic figures. Amongst many, many other achievements, he was the first to collaborate with Benchmade. His first collaboration with Spyderco in 1989 resulted in the first commercially produced LinerLock. The Fox Knives Terzuola 515 is yet another collaboration and what a collaboration it is.
The 515 features a black Cerakote finished 3.5” N690 blade with an interesting blade shape that’s somewhere between a modified Wharncliffe or a reverse Tanto. It opens with a thumb disk and locks open with a stainless-steel liner lock.
The G-10 handles provide a fairly slip resistant grip and a great look. It has a slim profile with a handle thickness of just over a half-inch thick. It has a right carry, tip-up pocket clip. It’s 4.33” closed and weighing just under four ounces.
