  1. #1

    Default New folder

    I picked up a new folder yesterday. Itís a esee made in Taiwan with d2. About $35. Just a general purpose in my pocket kind of knife. Weíll see how it works out.

    I didn't know that they made folders. When I looked at their site, they boast USA made. I did see a large selection of "ESEE" folders made in Taiwan on another site. The logo is different. I wonder if it is something that the licsensed? Too early in the AM to research it further.

    To the best of my knowledge, ESEE has not made a folder knife, they do have a sister company called Expat that made the Medellin Folder based on one of the ESEE blades.

    I called ESEE just now for verification of this, but I just got their voicemail so I am now just waiting for their response to this question.

    This one is a brk-r1 zancudo. Their fixed blades are usa made. They licensed these, I guess.
    Anyway I was looking for a d2 blade and these came up.

    They look like nice blades, and the price point is great. Hope it serves you well.

    I am not personally into folders, other than SAKs, but even I have to say that is a nice blade.

    They recently made a friction folder called the pinhoti.

    The pinhoti is nice! A little more than I want to pay.
    The rat2d2 has caught my eye for a budget folder. I might have gotten it over mine.
    I put my folder to use yesterday. I sliced summer sausage and cheese for our beach picnic.

    Does the pinhoti lock?

    The pinhoti does not lock.

    Itís a bit more steeper than Iíd like to pay for it as well. Iíd first try the svord peasant before it.

    I could see getting the mini svord peasant for sure.
    Yesterday I was in my tatter patch pulling weeds and using my new folder to cut off the buds. It worked great. A non locking knife like the peasant would have probably been better.
    For my field application I think a fixed blade boot knife would have been the best. Then youíre not lifting your shirt to find the sheath or trying to open and close a knife.

    I lost my folder yesterday. The only place I went was the farm and I didnít do much. I guess itís time to order the svord peasant.

    Cheese whiz. That only lasted two months. Time to retrace the steps. Track yourself. Hunt that rascal down. They hide. I've had knives and handguns find hidey spots all on their own. Kyrat has too. He'll tell you. They do those things. You cannot let this go. You have to take the upper hand and find it! I needed a handgun case to take to that communist state, Illinois. I opened one and there was an SP101...in the case. Can you imagine? Who stores a handgun in the case? I thought, hey, I've been missing you. I rest my case. Handgun case...get it?

    I did. Two and three times for some areas. The mower will probably find it.

    My main folding knife is going to complete his 15th "birthday" this year. A friend traded it with me when I was a wild teen. Good old times.
    As a friend of mine once said, fishing, gardening, hunting and tinkering with your car aren't just nice hobbies, but also a nice way to save money when you need.

    Ah, folder or schmolder? I'll still stay with my Buck 110 Hunter for all the right reasons.

    Then it was meant to be yours. A lost knife found is yours for sure. Congrats!

    On a tangent, talking about 'Cheese Wiz" has anyone ever tried using it for fish bait?
