This compact knife had some big shoes to fill. The designer of the Jettison™ comes from a long line of knife craftsmen. But with a razor-sharp blade and frame lock, this everyday carry knife is anything but junior when it comes to cutting tasks. Robert Carter is an up-and-coming knife designer from Hillister, Texas. He spent years learning the knife making traditions of his father, Joe Pardue and grandfather, Mel Pardue. Later, he wanted to design a folder for tasks where bigger blades got in the way. So, he created the compact, but mighty, Jettison™. This compact folder acts bigger than its size with a cool looking 2″ modified sheepsfoot blade that’s ideal for everyday tasks in the shop, home or wherever a job calls out for you. Just reach into your pocket, grab the smooth titanium handle and put the Jettison™ to work. Its frame lock will have your back and keep you safe. When you’ve got a big job to do, the Jettison™ is up for the challenge. And ready to prove itself.
