Description: Julian Klein started making knives in 2015 with pocket tools and moved into making custom fixed blades and folding knives recently. He has always been fascinated with precision engineering and CNC machining and was finally able to start making his own knives in Colorado. I was impressed to see the quality of his folding knives when I met him at USN in 2019. He currently works under the name JK Designs.
The Outpost is currently Julian's most popular daily carry folder. This is the 20th Outpost that has ever been made. #020 is marked on the interior of the handle.
The 3-1/3 inch blade was ground to shape from CPM-154 stainless steel. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it while remaining tough and chip resistant. The blade is satin finished in the grinds and features a hand rubbed satin finish in the flats.
The blade can be easily deployed using the dual thumbstuds which also acts as a blade stop. The blade is perfectly centered and has smooth action thanks to the caged bearing pivot system.
The handle is made from bead blast finished titanium. A matching titanium back spacer keeps the knife strong and provides a place to add a lanyard. The framelock provides sturdy and consistent lockup on each deploy. The 3D machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
