This hand-made Custom XS1 Small Folder by Aaron Frederick features Chad Nichols 3V stainless Damascus and Structural Carbon Fiber. Very cool stuff! Just exquisitely crafted, every small detail by hand. It is a small tank and feels awesome in-hand. This one is brand new direct from Mr. Aaron Frederick.
The Blade: The 3V Damascus is hollow ground to a drop point with slight upper swedge and diagonal jimping on the thumb rest. It opens smoothly via a single Silver thumb stud and locks up solid when open. Aaron’s logo appears at the base of the tang.
The Handle: Lighter, silver-toned Cheetah stainless damascus bolsters break up the darker blade and carbon fiber handle scales for a stellar look. Structural carbon fiber is a thicker woven version of the material from leftovers/cutoffs of Apache and Cobra helicopters. This stuff looks killer in person! Very ergonomic finger-grooved handle is just a pleasure to hold. Polished, jeweled and blue ano’d titanium liners are hand-filed and hold tight to a thicker backspacer creating solid-as-a-rock construction. And gorgeous too!
This XS1 Folder is finished off with a milled Cheetah damascus pocket clip to match the bolsters for tip up carry. It comes with a Patriotic hank hand-stitched by Aaron’s Mother.
