About the Designer
Looking at the shelves in his shop, you’d almost think Ed Van Hoy specializes in awards rather than knives. But that just comes with the territory when you are pushing the limits with your designs. Just a few of his many highlights are: the A.G. Russell Most Innovative Folding Knife, Most High Tech Design-S.I.C.A.C, Best Fantasy Knife in the Ohio Valley Knife Show 2005, and Knife of the Year at the Blade Show 2004. Ed is living proof that if you love what you do, the rest comes easy.
In Depth Look
One of the most decorated knives of all time is back.
We’re breathing new life into this unique everyday carry folder and bringing back the 180° swing opening. If you think that it might be all show and no substance, spend a mere minute with it and you’ll do a 180° swing yourself.
From his shop in Abingdon, Virginia, Ed Van Hoy dreamed up this historical design. It’s not only one of the most unique knives on the market, but it’s one of the most useful—it features a money clip, and is remarkably low profile so it’s never a burden. Plus, a quick-release lanyard adds a neck-carry option so it’s always at-hand.
The stainless steel blade has a subtle drop point shape, and when closed, the matching wishbone frame is a 100% effective blade edge guard. The unique open mechanism becomes instantly intuitive once you push down on the front lever then rotate the blade outwards for a full 180°. Once open, the minimal but very usable handle is extremely safe: the Snap Lock mechanism secures the knife so the harder you grip it, the more it locks the blade in place thanks to multiple positive locking surfaces between the frame and locking lugs.
This knife made history, get your hands on a piece of Ed’s legacy with the Snap Lock reissue. One of the most decorated knives of all time is back.
