    Best folder for self defense

    The Colonel Folder is absolutely the best folder for self defense for people who are not trained to fight with a knife in a martial way. Blade deploys easily. Handle texturing is aggressive, the knife won't slip out of the hand. Designed so that there's no way to close on your fingers.

    Colonel Folder

    I like the Colonel Folder alot. Quality construction. I already had the fixed version, and really do prefer the folder for carry reasons. I would give a 5, but the clip, while very sturdy, is overly tight, and quickly frays the stitching on the pocket of slacks/trousers. The handle is rough stippled for good grip, but could be smoothed at the area where the clip slides on.

    One of a kind

    This is my new favorite EDC knife. The quality is excellent, and the ingenious design is unparalleled. I'm VERY happy I found it here at BRAVO because the folder is quickly becoming hard to find at any price. You will not be disappointed.
