Details

Owning a custom knife hand carved by maker Alan Folts is a bit like owning some buried treasure. This scene is fitting, known as the Kraken Heiro, hand carved and anodized nautical theme on the front of back of the titanium handle. It's a 1 off you're certainly going to want in your collection.

Brand new product directly from the maker. 

The Blade: A long Folts-modified tanto point is a straight edge piercer with plenty of unique features. It's rather thick, polished on the spine's thumb scoop cut out with some angled jimping on the ramp for grip. The upper swedge is immaculate with faux top edge and uniquely angled tanto point. All grinds and flats on both sides have received a custom hand rubbed satin finish by Mr. Folts. The Kraken has a flipper tab opener that works in conjunction with a ball bearings pivot to create smooth opening action. Folts' name appears on the front of the blade. 

The Handle: Both slabs of Ti are hand carved and anodized by the man himself. The front featuring more of the sea scene of a boat under attack by a creature from the depths below. Waves created by the beast show the turmoil the crew must be going thru along with its large tentacle wrapped around the boat's anchor. Alan even added a few small fish near the bottom to top it off. The reverse portrays a partial atlas and other sailing symbols meant for the open sea. All of this titanium has a brush/polished appearance while the entire carving was anodized to a dark purple coloration. Full Ti hardware on this piece with matching back strap 

The one-of-a-kind Kraken Heiro ships in a carved (kraken tentacles on the lid) Wormy Chestnut wood box with padded insert, slip pouch and specs card from Alan.
