A new spin on a classic. Yet still fun when you open it up. When we first debuted the unique opener on this knife a few years ago, it was like nothing we’d ever seen before. This year we got to work creating a new design that opens eyes as well, resulting in the Fulcrum™ When Russ Kommer of Fargo, North Dakota designs his knives, he’s as excited by innovations as he is by sleek new lines. Yet being a knife maker with several years under his belt he also knows what works. That’s why he couldn’t help but bring back a time-tested folding system and make it even better by putting it in a knife with an even more attractive design. He wanted something that performed as well at opening as it did going through tasks. With the Fulcrum™2 he succeeded. The thin, sleek modified drop point blade style makes for a very nice every day knife. It’s as perfect for those hammering away on steel as for those who are crunching numbers. Either way you have a knife that puts classic looks and new technology into a modern-era folder. At first it may be hard to put your finger on what makes this knife unique. Then you use your thumb to open it. Push down on the actual sliding scale and pull back on the handle. The blade goes into its locking position. Your friend will simply say, “cool.” Which is good because words really don’t do this opener justice. Finally, the carbon fiber handle textured handle keeps it looking great in the closed position. But when you have so much power under the hood you can’t help but let it fly out of your pocket and get to work. If you’re looking for a knife that starts up conversations and ends jobs quickly, reach for the Fulcrum™ 2.
