    Solvang knives --- Emmanuel, Hoel, Boguszewski


    ADVERTISEMENT
    These are the three I brought home, first a C-Lock Dolphin folder prototype from Emmanuel Esposito, he won the Best in Show award. Not an auto, the C-lock unlocks the blade so it can be pulled open and also releases it so it can be closed and locked in place. Next, a Steve Hoel model P folder with Amayak Stepanyan engraving, I think this is my favorite Hoel of all time, the engraving and the knife are one. Last but not least, a Phil Boguszewski Mini Cobra prototype with a sabre grind and Timascus scales. An awesome tactical flipper in a small package.

    EXQUISITE knives Martin, each in its own way.

    That Hoel looks incredible. Amayak is undoubtedly one of the best.

    That timascus is just plain COOL material.

    CONGRATS on the acquisitions!

    Excellent, Martin. Wow!

    Is the Emmanuel an ambidextrous lock? It looks so.

    I love Amayak's work. Your superb lighting shows it off well. Props.

    That's a flavorful Cobra.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Coop, the lock is NOT ambidextrous, & Adam J., I'd love to see pictures of your Mini Cobra.
