The slim design allows it to ride very easy in your pocket. It makes a great general purpose, gentleman's fine pocket knife. Made with pride in Titusville, PA. We are an authorized Great Eastern Cutlery Dealer and purchased this new knife direct from them.

The Handle Construction:
The handle is long enough for a solid four finger hold for most people. The handle scales are Unicorn Ivory Acrylic and the attaching pins and liners are brass. The bolsters and "Bowtie" inlay shield are polished nickel silver giving the knife a classy look. There is a finger cut-out on the pen blade side giving access to the pen blade nail nick. The curve of the handle profile allows the knife to work well in the hand regardless of the knife position. The handle scale edges are rounded and flush with the outside perimeter making the knife pleasant to hold. The fit and finish are excellent and the blade action is crisp when opening and closing.
