FOX518ZW: Bastinelli/Fox 518ZW Slim Dragotac "Piemontes" Friction Folder

FOX

Fox Knives has been manufacturing a part of Bastinelli Creations production lineup for years. Now, the two have collaborated on a design that will answer numerous customer requests. Many people love the Dragotac series for its versatile flat ground Wharncliffe style blade and wildly ergonomic pistol grip style handle. However, lots of them are restricted to the types of knives (i.e. no locking knives) that they can carry. What we have here is a solution to that problem; a non-locking Slim Dragotac dubbed the Piemontes.

The Slim or Compact Dragotac "Piemontes" is a superb do-it-all kind of folder that will replace your tried and tested Svord Peasant Knife. It's ergonomic, slender, utilitarian, feather-light, and tactical—when it has to be. The 3.15" blade is made from N690Co stainless steel with a brushed satin finish. The contoured ziricote wood handle is constructed with barrel spacers for a completely flow-through design and its full-length liners make it quite sturdy. It has excellent fit and finish and the jimped thumb ramp, crowned spine, and Italian leather drop sheath make it an awesome value for your money. We highly recommend this beautiful Bastinelli design to you—manufactured in Italy by Fox Knives.

Wonderful knife
I’ve been looking for a nice display style friction folder without breaking the bank and this Fox really fits the bill. I could not be happier with the purchase. This is a well built, comfortable and stylish knife in my eyes. I wished they made a locking version. As a FF I’m not going to use this as an EDC by no means but am very content with admiring it and at the price point believe it’s well worth it. For our mates over the pond; this and it’s little brother version should be a must for you.
