ESEE is releasing a brand new friction folder into the wild. The Pinhoti is designed by Shane Adams and, like many of its ESEE fixed blade family members, it blends elements of modern and traditional knife design to maximize its outdoors utility.
Even though it’s a folder and not a fixed blade, the Pinhoti still aims to be a rugged tool that’s ready to tackle the varied chores outdoorsmen encounter on their adventures. At its heart is a 3.25-inch blade, a racy, sleek take on the classic puukko drop point, complete with a Scandi grind. The elongated tip ups the piercing potential, while the main edge, with its even back-to-front curvature, provides lots of slicing muscle and bite.
This is an intriguing knife. I carry my Craftlab Knives friction folder while camping all the time. So the knife should be a capable tool. It is also interesting to see a folder that is made entirely from ESEE stock materials. Their other ones aren’t made by Rowen (their production partner) I do not believe. This one looks to be in Rowen’s wheelhouse.
