The folders that I make are of the liner lock style. I make several models, but the
two most popular by far are the Duke and SAM models shown here. The dimensions listed
at the top of the two columns are the standard sizes, but each can be scaled up in
size. Notice that by varying the blade material, handle material and bolster treatment,
a truly unique knife can be designed and created.

My most popular folder is the SAM model. No mysterious acronyms here....just named
it after my cat, Sam. These folders are in use all over the world, some as everyday
work knives, some as “Sunday-go-to-meeting” knives. They are extremely popular as
gifts due to their beauty, functionality and uniqueness. Customizing one with the
recipient’s name on the blade makes it truly one of a kind. And, yes, you guessed
it: the Duke model is named after my dog, Duke.
