during Eurosatory, three weeks ago, I have given a friction folder to Olive for her to give it to Sal !
It's a Xavier Conil piemontais knife called "Couteau Des Sorgues", designed 10 years ago. The blade looks like the Chinese folder and cuts like a devil.
I love that knife so much, I took my chances and proposed it to Spyderco R&D to have a closer look at a modern Piemontais Design (handmade in the Vaucluse)
Perharps it will turn into another collaboration. I don't know.
But for your information I made my homework for that ! Friction folders rules !
