Olamic Cutlery is knife company based in Mountain View, California that makes “custom-tech” fixed and folding knives. Its founder, Eugene Solomonik, started the company in 2010 with the goal of offering usable, custom, handmade knives at a fair price. The knives are made in a small shop in Russia where Olamic employs a team of four craftsmen. Together they have over 75 years of knifemaking experience and each specializes in one part of the creation process. Learn more about Olamic here.
Eugene recently sent us one of their awesome mid-tech Bravado folders to give away, so if you’re interested, read on.
The Bravado is a large thumb-opening folding knife. We wanted to use Bohler’s N690 steel and decided to employ an Italian specialist for the blades because of their expertise with grinding and heat-treatment of this particular steel. The knife is then assembled and customized in-house, including custom scales and lock adjustment. An additional feature is the inclusion of a stainless threaded cylinder through the scale to ensure proper clip fastening. All hardware including standoffs is heat treated stainless. The pivot is a spanner-style and we include the necessary tool with purchase.
|Blade steel||Bohler N690 stainless|
|Scale material||Textured G10|
|Materials/Accessories||Titanium liners, stainless hardware/stand-offs, teflon or bronze washers, stainless clip, integrated lanyard loop, leather carrying case, padded zippered case|
