As Gear Patrol notes, other key features that James Brand devised when it launched the Folsom as its first outdoor knife are retained, including a liner lock, ambidextrous triangular opening slot, reversible stainless steel clip, tip-up carry orientation and bronze hardware. It also boasts an ultra-slim profile to minimize bulk as much as possible.
