FHCLK2: Custom Large K2 Folding Knife
Farid Mehr Custom Knives
 
Strength is the most prized quality of most of Farid's knife designs, so his folders tend to be large and boast stainless steel or titanium handle scales and frame lock mechanisms. He also has a penchant for using exotic blade steels with reputations for edge holding and toughness. One of his most popular models is his K2 folder, which is more utilitarian than many of his other designs without sacrificing the key qualities that make his knives unique. This is a Large K2 custom model by Farid that is entirely handmade by the man himself.

The Large K2 is a generously sized folding knife designed to withstand the rigors of serious cutting chores. It's such an excellent design that Spyderco has a production version readily available. The broad 4.625" Bowie-style blade is made from D3 super tool steel! It's so hard that brushed satin is just about the only finish you can do on this blade. It features smooth action, even though it rides on Teflon washers, and the patent pending opening hole that Farid is enamored with. It functions like a Spyderco Round-Hole but has ridges making it look like a gear and a D-shape, making it a little larger and providing much more purchase than the round-hole does. It's things like this and the rounded blade spine that set Farid's knives apart.

The Large K2's stout handle is machined from solid titanium and the frame lock includes Farid's signature serpentine cut on the lockbar. Like all well-made frame locks, the Large K2 is designed so a firm grip on the handle actually reinforces the function of the lock and greatly reduces the chances of unintentional lock release during use. The knife features a lockbar stabilizer, small lanyard hole, and a reversible spring pocket clip made from titanium. The lockup is a little tight as it comes from Farid but that's what you want in a knife this size. It will need a little breaking in period for the lockup to become perfect. If it was loose from the maker, it would be much more likely to develop play over its lifetime. It has the durability that characterizes all Farid Mehr's custom knives and we are fortunate to have this right from Farid himself. Manufactured in the United Kingdom.
