Designer Alan Folts of Melbourne, Florida created the custom knife that was to become the Biwa™ after weathering pressure from his minimalist hunting friends to create a do-it-all hunting knife that weighs as little as possible. Named after a species of Japanese trout, the Biwa™ hits the mark.
The long distal taper on the satin-finished blade is a powerhouse for paring, capping, and more. The polished resin-infused fiber handle is crafted so that you’ll know just where the blade is even if the whole knife sinks out of sight. And the included black leather sheath not only protects the blade, it does so in style.
When it comes to knives, Alan knows all about giving back to the people. He climbed the ranks in college by entering knives in art shows. Since then he’s been adamant about teaching and passing on the skills of custom knife making to others. He specializes in one-of-a-kind fixed blades that have great ergonomics and sleek futuristic designs, such as the top selling Folts Minimalist ® Series.
