If you spend much time with folding knives, you know that some of the most expensive folders are titanium frame-locks. While Ti frame-lock folders tend to be expensive they also tend to be very rugged. A good Ti frame-lock might be the strongest lock that you can get on a folding knife.
I came across a new Ti frame-lock the other day that really caught my interest – the Combative Edge M1. The M1 is made by Fox Cutlery of Italy for Combative Edge. Fox makes some excellent knives though they haven’t really caught on here in the USA. The reviews on this knife are encouraging, the manufacturer has a great reputation, and the price is PHENOMENAL. At $170, this knife should send chills down the spine of its competitors.
I just wish they would offer it with a drop point blade rather than a recurve. Even with the recurve, I would love to try one of these knives out. It looks quite impressive.
