Like the www.agrussell.com "One Hand Knife" ?
Are there any production folding knives with scandinavian grinds? I've seen a couple of EKA folding knives that looked like they might've had scandinavian grind, but I'm not sure.
No, that has a pretty noticeable secondary bevel on there. I'm looking for folders with a true scandinavian grind, a large primary bevel and no other bevels.
I confess I don't quite understand why true scandi grind folders don't exist.
<sarcasm> Obviously it's so the knife companies can sell fantabulous knife sharpening 'systems'!</sarcasm>
I don't think the knife industry is actually that silly, so there must be some kind of reason. Maybe it's harder to mass-produce a decent out-of-the-box edge and polish with scandi grinds?
Jens Anso has a collaboration with Spyderco called the "Rock Lobster". It is due to be released this fall in North America. I have seen pictures but can't remember where; I suppose you could google the European Spyderco office. It came from a knife show in Europe this past spring.
Almost all Japanese weaponry has a primary bevel....try looking around for a Hanwei tanto if you want a good knife (but alas, it won't be a folder).
I got sick of the sorry condition of my CS Ti-Lite and ground it down to a primary bevel....that sure took care of it not being able to hold an edge.
If you really want a large primary bevel and no other bevels have a look at Higo no Kami folder (or Higonokami - traditional Japanese folding carpenter's knife) For examle -http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.aspx?c=2&p=51165&cat=1,51222 . It's unexpensive ($17 - $25), different sized and quite functional.
Of course, it's not HiTech-WOW-Cool Tactical Folder.
Marttiini has 1 or two folders
There should be some folders available with the Scandi. Have Tom Krein do you one-up on a suitable folder.
I've got a couple of the Ahti butterflies. They are made by the same factory that made the old Hackman butterlies years ago. I think they may have a very small secondary bevel, but that's easily sharpened out.
Last item on the page. Can't beat the price.
The only EKA I've owned had a secondary bevel, but it was pre-owned, so it may have been added. Email Ragnar and ask him about the EKAs. He should be able to tell you.
i will be doing a test to see if i can make one if it works i will make a few to sell
