I've been a fan of Bill Harsey and Chris Reeve knives for some time. If you don't know who Bill Harsey is then you haven't been around knives long enough to know true quality and utility in a knife. He's world famous for his designs and most recently for the "Yarbourgh" Green Beret knife which is given to each of the United States Army Special Forces "Qualification" course grads at graduation. It's not a collectors piece it's a knife that is to be carried into harms way and has proven it's self as one of the "Special Forces" greatest tools in their tool box.
I recently had the opportunity to meet Mr. Harsey in his hometown of Eugene Oregon and I picked up his Harsey D2/DA auto blade designed by him and manufactured by Lone Wolf knives.
By far the best auto/folder combination that I have ever held in my hand. Benchmade ? forget it, Emerson ? forget it just go with anything designed by Mr. Harsey and you'll have the right tool for the right job.
HERE IS WHAT I PURCHASED: SPECIAL RUN - LONE WOLF HARSEY 24050 ALL BLACK D2 DOUBLE ACTION AUTOMATIC PLAIN EDGE
The blade is CPM S30V steel and is the best I've had in a knife. It hold the edge much better than any other steel and is out of box as sharp as a surgical scapal.
Watch the video to the far right and see the action and location of the auto feature. Good jazz music too.
