Foster Knives 1911 Government Ebony Custom Butch Vallotton Dual Action Hidden Release Switchblade Flick Knife
Foster Knives 1911 Government Nickel Ebony Custom Butch Vallotton Dual Action Hidden Release Switchblade Flick Knife
If the grip shape is good enough for the most popular pistol in the world, it's certainly good enough for a carry knife. Inspired by the famous design of John M. Browning, the 1911 Folder is the perfect compliment to America's favorite sidearm and a superb knife in its own right.
The 154CM blade is heat and cryogenically treated for maximum durability and edge retention. The checkered thumbstuds on both sides of the blade allow for instant opening in an emergency or for convenience. The handle is made from machined aluminum. The handles are plated with electroless nickel.
The Foster Knives 1911 Double Action is a scale release automatic version of the original 1911 folder. Unlike most auto openers, the 1911 DA can be opened manually with a thumbstud like any normal linerlock, or can be deployed in the blink of an eye by activating the auto opening mechanism. Designed by auto-opening knife genius Butch Vallotton, the 1911 DA can be opened simply by pivoting the the front of the left scale. The mechanism is completely concealed and only known to the user - making the knife easy to deploy instantly, even while wearing gloves.
Butch Vallotton, like most knifemakers, started making knives as a hobby, had to start selling knives to pay for his hobby and before he knew it became a professional fulltime knifemaker in 1984 with a waiting list of customers at the age of thirty. A self-proclaimed gadget freak, a good part of his business comes from automatic knives and he is credited with inventing the ambidextrous blade thumb stud.
