7120 description
As you know, Barry Gallagher is well known for his award-winning high-end custom art knives. So we had a special challenge in producing Barry's Badger design at a quality level that would satisfy him, while keeping the price low enough to satisfy you.

The Badger features our patented OutBurst assisted opening with the patent-pending Fire Safe mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and fast access that we have ever seen in sport and work folders. Caution: When closing the knife, always press firmly to fully close the blade, and be sure the Fire Safe pin locks into place securely with an audible "click".

This popular folder uses high-carbon 5Cr15MoV stainless steel for the 2.85" blade, and has a non-reflective black oxide coating for maximum corrosion resistance. We call the blade shape a "notched drop point" with a high hollow grind and a strong center spine. The result is a blade with excellent slicing ability and good penetrating ability with minimum weight.

Our InterFrame locking liner build has two stainless steel liners, also black oxide finished, and a black aluminum back spacer. For the Badger scales, we have created a special layered green and black textured G10, which is CNC machined top and bottom to aid grip. As a final touch, we added a removable custom stainless steel clip.

The effect from the Badger knife is indistinguishable from the best custom builds. You can tell your friends that it's a Barry Gallagher design, but you don't have to mention the very affordable price.

Patent pending

All in all this knife is worth every penny. it is small, but hefty. the handle is grippy and comfortable. its on the smaller side, but it cuts well with a fully bellied edge. i totally hated the fire-safe pin on this for about 3 hours, it was hard to use, catchy, didn't open all the time. not like my CRKT Notorious. After some lube and fingering (go figure) it was easier to open up and work into. everything is great about this little guy, if you want it, get it
