It’s a pistol of a knife: it obliterates tasks. This Lucas Burnley-designed everyday carry knife is compact in stature but packs some heat in the features department. It comes with a frame lock for safety, and friction grooves on the drop-point blade for a secure grip. Be careful where you point it. The Squid™ is an everyday carry folding knife from designer Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Based on the concept of a compact pistol, it’s small in size and big on ability. Don’t let the 2.25″ blade fool you; this is a full-on, tactically inspired knife that’s ready to take on your largest cutting challenges. By keeping it wide at nearly one inch and using the drop-point style, Burnley was able to give the blade a good balance of tip strength and point geometry for utility tasks, packing all the functionality of a full-size tactical folder, into an easy to carry, compact design. Just like any good gun, you want something that’ll keep you safe. That’s why the Squid™ comes with an internal frame lock and deep pocket clip for a secure carry. When you’re ready for this knife to see some action, use the thumb stud to deploy the blade. So go ahead and bring this sidearm with you wherever you go. Just remember, it’s loaded.
