MyTacticalEDC: ESEE Knives Pinhoti Friction Folder EDC Blade

Named for the trail that winds through hundreds of miles of the Appalachians, the Pinhoti friction folder is a testament to ESEE Knives’ commitment to creating tools you will use outdoors. The Pinhoti is a lightweight knife designed by ESEE staff member and avid outdoors person Shane Adams, who is from the northern part of Georgia near where the Pinhoti Trail runs through.

The lightly textured handle offers excellent ergonomics for bare or gloved hands and will stay in your grip even when wet. The Pinhoti comes with a leather taco-style belt pouch that can even fit your multitool or pistol magazines. ESEE says that if you are looking for a folding knife you can count on as much as your fixed blade, or if you are looking for a knife you can pass down through the generations, the Pinhoti is an heirloom in the making!
