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.

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.

Cons: Handle Material, Weight
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.

Worthy of the Wayfarer Name
Olamic's Wayfarer has always been a favorite design of mine. The original with the 4" blade was always a bit large for me, so I had been looking at purchasing a Compact when I found out about the Wayfarer 247. I have owned one for a few weeks now, and I love the thinner profile of the handle, as well as the ceramic ball on the new pocket clip. The feel of the 247 is very similar to the Compact, only a bit thinner with a very solid feel. The blade deploys both smoothly and firmly without having an overly aggressive detent. The blade to handle ratio is excellent and it has perfect balance. The handle shape fits my hands very well, giving it a very confident, yet comfortable grip. The build quality is what you would expect from Olamic, which is very high quality, and knowing that Olamic backs the blade with their excellent customer service, is confidence inspiring. The flipper is more of a lightswitch than a push button deployment, and does not have any texture to it, but the shape makes it hard to miss when opening. There is just enough softening of the edges to prevent it from being uncomfortable without making it slippery. About the only thing I could find that I thought could be improved was the cutout for the frame lock was a bit wide. That is getting very nit picky, though, as it does not hinder the performance or the comfort of the blade at all. I felt I needed to point out something in order to be objective, so that is my one area for improvement. I would highly recommend this mid-tech option as a very nice tactical and useful knife for daily carry. I liked it so much I actually purchased a Compact a couple of weeks after. Great materials, great steel, great design, and execution. Overall I am extremely satisfied!
