New Hampshire-based Die Free Co. releases USA Made McQueen folder

The McQueen is a near perfect fusion of form and function, and the beauty of the design is in its simplicity. We took inspiration from the timeless aesthetic of late 60’s and early 70’s American muscle and added our signature twist. What we ended up with is a classy daily companion fit for any occasion.

The blade is made from CPM-4V steel, and sharpened in house to a 25° blade edge. CPM-4V is an industry standard known for its superior edge retention and overall toughness. The 25° edge is ideal for a daily carry utility knife and further increases its edge retention. With minimal components, a reliable CAM LOCK locking mechanism, and all steel construction, this folder will last a few lifetimes.  And like all quality tools, this one is proudly manufactured and assembled in the USA.

We’re a small team of like minded individuals who just want to do “us”.  We cut our teeth in the firearms industry at companies like Sig Sauer, Accuracy International, and collectively at Q.  And for the last couple of years we’ve been consulting for others while dreaming of building our own thing, our own way.  So that’s exactly what we’re doing.  That doesn’t mean we’re done consulting.  We cherish our industry partners, and will continue to build on this segment of the business.
So why, “Die Free Co”?  Easy.  We’re based in New Hampshire.  The “Live Free or Die” state.  And to us, that’s more than a cute slogan on a license plate.  It’s a code to live by.  It also makes for a wicked cool web domain.  So let’s not over think it.Today we sell a knife.  Tomorrow we might be developing the next evolution in small arms technology.  Time will tell, and we hope you stick around to find out.
