This USA-Made Straight Razor Is An EDC Friction Folder In Disguise

Mar 25, 2020

Category: Gear

Back in 2016, TOPS Knives’ CEO Leo Espinoza designed and introduced the world to the knifemaking brand’s very first friction folder, called the Tac-Raze. Now, that knife is getting an even more unique follow-up in the USA-made Tac-Raze 2.

Don’t let the appearance fool you — this new knife isn’t actually a straight razor intended for beard maintenance, though it clearly draws styling cues from cutthroat blades. However, it’s durable, hatchet-style 1095 steel blade is actually intended for EDC cutting tasks, like opening packages or cutting lengths of cord. And it mates beautifully to its curved G10 handle — which offers plenty of grip in just about any conditions. Complete with its own premium leather sheath (which can be worn either vertically or horizontally), this non-locking everyday carry friction folder is available now for $105.

Purchase: $105
