A look at how Rodrigo Sfreddo created the Modern Gaucho, a knife made of damascus steel and ironwood. It received the American Bladesmith Society’s 2016 International Master Smith Knife of the Year. And we just earned at least three future Jeopardy! answers.
THE BEST Knives
This whimsical Swiss army style knife packs in seven useful tools, while looking like various animals, including a rhino, a hippo, and a giraffe. Has a bottle opener, wire stripper, file, punch, flat/Phillips drivers, and a knife. We think they should have called it the ZooTool.
YouTuber John Heisz made a folding knife out of a worn out circular saw blade. Our takeaway here is that it’s incredibly hard to do it by hand. Also, we have to redefine our notion of “basic tools.” John also made a wooden knife with the same template. More on his site.
Designed by world record speed climber Hans Florine, this lightweight and compact folding knife is designed specifically for ease of use and access during climbing expeditions. The Niad has a corrosion-resistant titanium handle, and a large hole for attaching it to carabiners.
With a satin finished 3.5″ VG-10 steel blade, this folding knife has carbon fiber handle scales, making it not just a practical knife, but a really good looking one. Also in gunmetal / titanium. Though we really want the handmade version by its designer Lucas Burnley.
