A designer and dedicated custom knife instructor with over 20 years’ experience, Alan cares deeply about helping folks learn about knives as tools, and passing along the skills of custom knife making to others. He designed the S.P.I.T.™ as a simple, versatile blade and gave it a carry sheath for easy portability, so it’s on hand when you need it most.
Made with a needle-sharp tip, the S.P.I.T.™ takes advantage of what Inverse Tanto blades do best: slicing, piercing, and fine detail work. The 2.3-inch blade is easy to sharpen thanks to high-carbon steel, which is then finished in both satin and stonewash for an eye-grabbing duotone appearance that shows this knife means business. The bright orange G10 handle offers both a sturdy grip and makes sure you can locate the knife easily in your shop, gear bag, or wherever you leave it. In short, it’s a minimalist knife with maximalist usability.
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.
