Quiet Carry Strand Knife

Aug 14, 2017

Category: Gear

It used to be the case that, if you wanted to carry around a decent pocket knife, it had to be big, tactical, and intimidating. Thankfully, that time has come and gone and now there are a handful of brands (with more getting onboard each day) who make functional folders that are also well designed. Case in point: Quiet Carry’s The Strand.

Measuring up at a modest 6.7 total inches in length, this sleek pocket folder wouldn’t look out of place in an urban environment. But that doesn’t mean they skimped on the quality; it’s still built well with excellent materials, including D2 steel for the blade, a 6AL4V titanium handle, and 416 stainless steel hardware. Even better, the handle includes a sturdy and reliable frame lock and butter-smooth deployment system, the blade features an ambidextrous thumb stud for easy opening, and the whole package weighs just 3.2 ounces. Available in your choice of finish – including black PVD, bead-blasted, or stonewashed – The Strand retails starting at $129.

Purchase: $129+
