As a former tool maker, Jason B. Stout from Tennessee has all the technical skills for making precise folding knives. He does not claim to create knives for everyone's taste. He instead creates his very own personal style, which we feel is reflected really well in the Lateralus. The extremely sturdy stainless steel frame lock locks the massive, ball-bearing-mounted blade with stone-wash finish which is opened with a flipper. The additional index finger notch makes it possible to hold the knife very short for more precise work. As blade steel he uses the especially edge-retaining D2
. Complete stainless steel handle with weight-reducing milling. Handle and blade completely in dark blackwash finish.
