Description
QAQTR12: QTR-12 General Lee 2 Folding Knife, Designed by G&G Hawk
QTRMSTR
 
The General Lee 2 from QTRMSTR is affectionately known as the "pace car" for the knife industry in 2016, released on January 1st. It features many design innovations Grant and Gavin Hawk are known for in a unique design that you probably haven't seen or held before. It's quality through and through and truly an awesome blade.

The QTR-12 is a collaborative effort with the Hawk Knives design team from Idaho City, ID. The full-titanium rocker chassis is unlike anything that's ever been made in the history of tactical knives. Each piece is individually milled and assembled by hand to exacting tolerances. Each part has been cut by wire EDM, milled to shape, stonewashed, then smoothed by hand, for a perfect fit and durable finish.

Out in front, QTRMSTR has installed a lightly stonewashed CPM-S35VN sheepsfoot blade with blood grooves and milled holes that glide effortlessly with the help of its design-integrated flipper. The dual thumb studs provide ample purchase and double as the blade stop when in the open position.

Beware - no knife in the world has opening/closing action like this one. It operates more like the suspension of a Formula One race car than it does a traditional folding knife. Its action is fascinating, innovative and tough to put down.

About the Ceramic ORB Pivot System

The ORB Pivot System is a sealed ceramic ball-bearing technology that is widely considered the second generation of an open-bearing system that is being used by some manufacturers today.

The ORB's advantages are plenty: dirt and pocket lint cannot impede the track of these rollers as they're encased. The ball-bearing system tightens the tolerances in and around the pivot of the folding knife. As a result, the lockup is vault tight, yet the rollers allow for almost effortless rotation.

The lack of 'play' at any point on the rotational axis of the blade is truly unlike anything currently being made at this price point in the United States.

Unique
This knife was bought as a collector's piece for its uniqueness more then EDC. To flip open is not so easy due to the way it opens up but for collection its a no brainer. A bit on the big side also.

Nice techno!
Delivered in less than 2 weeks in France.Very interesting knife, the open/close cinematic of the blade is very well studied and smooth.Construction is perfect, just the hidden spring looks cheap. No sheath but a little plastic bag for a $300 knife: not smart…Highly recommandable.

Knife for today's world
I have looked at this knife since its release. I kept on watching the KC video a million times to understand the action and finally gave in. The knife blows me away,1st the design and function are extremely unique compared to the so called normal flipper. Being able to deploy the blade by thumb stud, flipper or pocket clip gives you great operational options in difficult times or tight quarters. The build quality is superb , very sharp and gripping while open gives you a very confident feeling in its strength and versatility. As the video explains it takes a while to get the feel of the toggle action compared to normal flippers. After I got the feel for the knife I was able to release and close the blade without incident, with very smooth and tight operation. Knife Center video is very important to any new buyer of this knife, visual tutorial explained what to look for as far as grasp and operation which is needed for this knife for safe operation especially when learning the new toggle deployment. If you have any doubt about this knife, loose it. It is a high quality and dependable flipper and I would trust my life on it. I also went to Quartermaster's website and found out that they recommend a dry lubricant instead of liquid lube to keep dust and dirt collection down even though the bearings are encased it is not an easy knife to clean easily, out side of that I highly recommend this knife. Thanks again Knife Center for this great product and great service.
