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.

Best knife on the market for under $400
When I first received the 247 I considered sending it back because the action seemed a little too stiff and the blade was dull compared to much less expensive knives I have out of the box. I'm really glad I didn't. The M390 takes a very sharp edge and holds it well. The action smooths out beautifully after a quick cleaning and applying some lube (and lots of opening and closing of course). The Olamic guys are really putting out a great knife with this offering. Very solid build quality, top notch materials, and a beautiful design make this the midtech to have in your collection. It is a bit heavy but carries like a dream and the heft is a result of the solid build of this knife. If you're even close to being on the fence about picking one up, just do it you won't regret it.

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..
