The Gill folder was initially a friction folder, and was named in honor of our local Veteran Owned coffee shop.
The long blade has multiple holes to assist in weight reduction and puncture damage. The lengthened flipper tab also acts as a guard to keep your hand from slipping forwards onto the cutting edge when your hands are cold/wet.
The Gill features a tanto or drop point hand ground blade. The action is found on the guard flipper tab that fires the blade open on caged stainless steel ball bearings. The steel has a final thickness around .125 thick, and is precision surfaced, stamped, heat-treated, ground and finished 100% in house by hand.
The handles on the Gill are made from aerospace grade 5 6Al4V Titanium. This allows for the proper function of the lockbar, more accurate machining and overall more dependable outcome. All the machining, sanding, sculpting and customizing is done in house by hand.
Clip and Hardware:
The clip is made from the same trusted 6Al4V titanium as the handles and is machined and hand finished to give the right tension in the pocket without compromising on looks or quality. The hardware is made in the US out of stainless steel and then hand sized in house for each knife made. The pivot barrel features a .250 outside diameter to ensure the strongest hinge-point for the blade without compromising the integrity of the blade strength.
