The next knife release from Vosteed Cutlery will be the Corgi, a knife with a cute name and many interesting features. The Corgi is as symmetrical as possible for a folding knife and comes equipped with Vosteed’s proprietary Trek Lock mechanism.
Although a relatively young company, Vosteed was founded by Yue Dong, a knife enthusiast and industry vet who worked as a designer for Kizer before opening the doors on his own shop. He put that experience to good work, turning out a series of knives for Vosteed that are visually very distinct from one another – knives like the Nightshade, influenced by the Shilin Cutter, to the Valkyrie, an angular, seax-inspired flipper that was the debut platform for the Trek Lock. So it’s impressive, but not surprising, that the Corgi looks nothing like any of its Vosteed siblings.
Yue is a great guy, whom I have enjoyed getting to know. I admit this is a large part of why I would like to see the company succeed. I covered another of their new releases in the August Knife News column.
