Crafted in Italy, Fox knives has put a lot of thought and ef­fort into the Olive Wood Liner Lock, which, at first glance, speaks for it­self with its el­e­gant features. This 2.75-inch 440C blade fills the void left be­tween the tra­di­tional and mod­ern, with its clas­sic olive wood scales, soft edges, and clas­sic drop point blade—while still don­ning a thumb stud for quick de­ploy­ment, and a liner lock for one-handed clos­ing.

The nicely heat-treated 440C stands up to most cut­ting tasks with ease, and the han­dle shape aids nicely with com­fort dur­ing use. Even with­out a pocket clip, the Olive Wood still sits quite nicely in your pants pocket, de­spite its thick frame, and be­comes nearly un­no­tice­able through­out the day. The ease of use doesn't just end with its com­fort­able size and weight. Open­ing is also ex­pe­di­ent due to the thumb stud and the shape of the scales, al­low­ing for the swift flick of the thumb to ac­cess the blade. tasks. Ul­ti­mately, all knives dif­fer in these cat­e­gories, but at the end of the day it's what the user feels com­fort­able with that mat­ters the most. Gen­tle­man's knives are a unique cat­e­gory, one you won't find in a fil­ter on a re­tailer's web­site, but when you see one, you'll cer­tainly rec­og­nize it. The sea is part­ing. KI
