Renowned outfitter Filson is probably best known for their fabric goods. They are, after all, what the brand built themselves upon and what made them famous. But the company is far from being a one-trick pony and, in conjunction to their durable outerwear and high quality bags, also offers a number of excellent related products, such as this Buckeye Folding Knife.
In a partnership with Seattle-based metalsmith and leatherworker Robb Gray, Filson has developed and offered up this beautifully crafted liner-locking pocket folder for sale. With a handle made from East Coast Buckeye and Black Resin Wood that houses the stonewashed N690 stainless steel blade, this knife almost looks like a showpiece, rather than the fully functional drop point folding knife that it is. And each individually numbered and documented knife comes with a custom made vegetable-tanned Filson Bridle Leather sheath and belt loop to keep it safe whenever and wherever you carry it. But this quality doesn’t come cheap; each knife retails for $750. [Purchase]
