The Longblock Prototype

The Longblock Prototype is my exploration into a folding pocket knife based around these design goals:

Clean. Simple well executed forms with minimal visual distractions.

Sophisticated.  Beyond traditional locking mechanisms.

Hidden Complexity.  Simplicity to the user empowered by ingenuity on the inside.

Intuitive Function.  Push button lock, concentric with pivot.

This is simply a design and fabrication exercise to test my own limits.  This is not a knife that I plan to be building for sale in the foreseeable future.  Thanks for looking.
