One piece Titanium. Brian Tighe did a great job.
I hate to be the new guy asking dumb questions, but what knife is the bottom? I searched Google, and did a reverse image search and came up empty. I love the shape of that knife.
Medford, Praetorian I think
That would be the one - Thank you!
In case you missed my previous inquiry, I'm looking to know what the knife is on the left.
Looks nice. Also it looks outta my price range, but intrigued nonetheless.
Oh, sorry. Sometimes when I'm away I come back to twenty reply notifications and I miss something.
That knife is a Chinese clone of the no longer available Sinkevich CannaBis (one of his Shiro collab knives, IIRC), but converted to a framelock. It cost <$100, it drops shut, has perfect action, and great fit and finish. It is the exact same size as the Kershaw version of the CannaBis, the Concierge.
I bought it because since its release I've always said that ZT should have made the Concierge as the mini-0454 model, because that's what it feels like in hand, a shorter 0454 (I prefer the Concierge to the 0450 design by a huge margin). The clone just makes me wish ZT would make a version of that design all the more.
It's a great little design, if I stumble across a second hand CannaBis I'll probably pull the trigger even at the ludicrous Shiro-inflated price it will command.
On a related note: that clone is the last knife I threw into the line when I shot this photo. My intent was to photograph only knives that weren't the boring flat grey titanium, so I grabbed a bunch of colorful jazzed-up titanium handled knives, then when I looked at them in a line I decided I needed one flat grey one for contrast and grabbed that one from my desk.
It is, I believe, made by Borka. Makes some interesting stuff and has collaborated with Marfione on many custom grinds!
@WValtakis is correct. It is a Medford Praetorian Genesis T.
This is a Brian Tighe Tighe Rod with an S-30-V match striker blade and a Ti Klecker lock handle. The 91mm SAK is for size comparison.
I wasn't sure what I'd make of Medfords when I got my first one, but I wound up loving it -- and I've been upending my collection ever since to be able to acquire more of them.
The latest is this Praetorian Genesis T with Vulcan finish, which feels tiny after getting used to the full-size Prateorian.
Hi, that center folding dagger knife is a beauty. Could you please share the name/ maker of that knife. Thanks!!!
My ti handled knives, excluding a few with half ti - half CF.
