Grovemade has a pretty good habit of not releasing anything for purchase until it’s seemingly perfect. But that doesn’t mean they never revisit their gear to make it even better. Their Minimalist Knife is one such case, as they just revamped it with a new build material: titanium.
The higonokami-inspired friction folder still has the same stunningly-simplistic style it had the first time around. It’s also still built completely in the USA with as few parts as possible. And the blade is, again, still made from 440C steel. The difference: the body is machined from a single piece of titanium, making this version much lighter (2.6 ounces total, as opposed to 4.3) without sacrificing on strength.
