OLD School! This terrific folder from retired(?) maker Ron Richards is probably from the eighties. ⁠

It SURE looks great now! Apparently he was a pioneer on locking mechanisms. Maybe @MichaelWalkerTaos can offer an insight?⁠

Knife provided and available or similar from Paul at KnifeLegends What a privilege to capture!⁠
