Description
OCWAY247: Mid-Tech Wayfarer 247 Folding Knife, Plain
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 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.

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.

Cons: None
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.
