It's a lumintop penlight in Ti.
A Pacific Cutlery (later Benchmade) 983 swing knife from the 1980s (87? 88?) designed by the late Barry Wood . This is my third swing knife. These were originally patented in the US in the late 1800s but were brought back to life, so to speak, by Barry Wood in the 1970s. I'd really like a Barry Wood custom but this seemed like a pretty cool alternative. Apparently, Barry (and others) could open this knife one handed but I can't and the instructions that came included with the knife describe two-handed opening. (I can open my smallest swing knife one-handed. This is my largest.) All three of the swing knives that I own feature different locks. This one locks up pretty solid without resorting to any moving hardware aside from the frame itself.
Hmmmm. I think my next "knife" purchase
isn't going to be a knife, at all.....
