HVRNT Custom Axes & Knives

HVRNT Custom Axes & Knives

Malvaux Number 1 Pocket Knife

Handmade in Switzerland, Malvaux’s Number 1 is a simple but brilliant take on the pocket knife. Its handle is bent at just the right angle to make it easier to both unfold and use the knife. It’s released only periodically in batches of 150 units at a time, so act fast if you want one.

Making a Balisong Bottle Opener

Making a Balisong Bottle Opener

Meteorite Fidget Spinner Knife

Meteorite Fidget Spinner Knife

EDC and viral toys collide with this fidget spinner that doubles as a pocket knife. Don’t worry, the blade stays tucked when folded. So it’s not as cool as a butterfly knife, but it’s not as dangerous (or illegal) either.
