Description
OCWAY247: Mid-Tech Wayfarer 247 Folding Knife, Light Blasted
Olamic Cutlery
 
The Wayfarer was Olamic Cutlery's first venture into folding knives. It was designed by custom knifemaker Mike Vagnino and the original 4" model couldn't have been a better jumping off point. It was a very well balanced, fast, strong tactical folder with beautiful lines and an extremely comfortable feel. Now, after much customer input, the Wayfarer is available in a more everyday carriable size with a price point that will make it very competitive when compared directly with some of the best high-end production knives. Some of the machining of this knife is done in Italy but all the assembly and finishing is performed in the USA for the best possible quality.

The 3.45" hollow ground M390 blade is satin finished and rides on a caged bearing system for a supremely quick deployment using the flipper. This Wayfarer 247 has a flipper tab as well as a thumb slot for a more traditional style opening method you can use when you need a silent blade deployment. The titanium frame lock, floating titanium backspacer and precise tolerances give the knife durability and strength throughout. The handle is made from 6Al4V titanium with chamfered edges and a light bead blasted finish. The curved shape and flared out butt end make this handle extremely ergonomic to hold and to use. It comes with a Todd Begg-style ceramic ball pocket clip positioned for tip-up right-hand carry, a custom pivot, ultra-functional jimping on the thumb ramp, and a replaceable lockbar insert that doubles as the overtravel preventor. This is custom-level, competitively priced EDC blade you've been looking for, brought to you by the talented, innovative team at Olamic Cutlery.

Olamic wayfarer 247
I need to start by saying this knife is outstanding! The Handel blade steel action all excellent. The only negative to this blade is the lock Interface. geometry it's very sloped not flat make me a little nervous. other then that the pocket clip works great. Very easy access and this knife will not slip out of your hands.

The Perfect EDC
It's all about personal preference and for me, this the perfect EDC. I opted for the bare-bones version (which could be misleading because it's nothing short of spectacular), if I want prettier, I'll get another Wayfarer Compact. The profile, other than the frame lock vs Liner is nearly identical to the Compact, but perhaps 1/3 thinner. The ergonomics based on my fairly large hands are fantastic. I'm becoming a bigger fan of Olamic Tactical by the day. When in doubt I, whip it out..

Get It Now !
This Olamic Wayfarer 247 is terrific in every way, come very sharp straight out of the box. Does include a pivot tool so that a bonus, because let face it soon or later you got to disassemble the knife to clean it up and put some oil in it. The ergonomic feel very comfortable in the hand, even it look heavy but it only slightly heavier than the zt 0452cf. If you can't afford this I would recommend the zt 0450, but be ready to open that thing up for adjusting the so heavy detent (don't say I didn't warn you). Overall I really like this EDC for a knife, I could even use it as self defense but hopefully it won't come down to that. Ohh did I mention the blade steel is M390 on this mid-tech. And thank you knifecenter for they excellent services, all way a pleasure.

A mid-tech perfection
Boy, I am glad that I waited and got the M390 version instead of the first production run with Elmax blade.

Bang for buck
Honestly, having bought this knife with high expectations (since it's not inexpensive), it has impressed. You'd be hard-pressed to find a knife at this price point that is as smooth, well-designed and possesses a similar level of build quality. In fact, you could spend far more and not get an appreciably better knife. Very well done. Simply put, you can't go wrong with this one.

Get this knife! You'll love it.
A very nice design, excellent execution. Workmanship is absolutely top notch, the flipping action better than knives double the cost, and the fit and finish couldn't be improved upon on mine. Action, quality, and blade all nicer than Hinderer, in my opinion, for less money meeting the same niche. The only suggestion I would offer them for change is to consider making the non lock side scale from G10 or carbon fiber to lighten it a touch. The knife is more than strong enough that this could be done easily to make it an even better edc. But an excellent knife as it is, highly recommended.
