    Yeah, the hinge that holds the excess blade also folds up and acts as the lock. Its a really creative design. Never seen it again.

    Its a knock off of the Marbles Safety Folder, which Marbles has been selling from the early 1900's up to the present.

    The D'Estaing dagger goes back to the 1780s.

    The design was later called a folding Bowie.

    Wow, thats insanely cool. What was the model called?

    The pink blade on that spartan is awesome. Where did you have that done, did you do it? Edit: or is that a reflection?

    Thanks. I'm still loving it. I can't recommend the maker enough. He makes great scales for a lot of knives that transform the handle into an entirely new knife. Thinking of doing it to me Super Freek.

    I don’t think these all meet the original criteria for this thread, but these knives are all big to me.

    IMG_6005.JPG IMG_6006.JPG With a 3.85" blade this Rike titanium framelock squeaks into the large criteria with a solid G10 show Side in OD which helps with the respectable 4.5oz for the nearly 9 inches OAL. well-made with lots of machine work detail on the Ti lock side and a very nice action on caged bearings.

    A couple Recon 1, newer style flat ground spearpoint in s35vn and dlc coated along with the older hollow ground clip point version in aus8 w bLack teflon coating. I do wish they would've stuck with the hollow grind but thats personal preference so I have my eye out for the XHP hollow version.
