Like a traditional Finnish general-purpose belt knife, the Tueto™ /too-toe/ everyday carry folding knife has a long curved cutting edge and a clean design. But what sets it apart from the puukko knives of generations past is the fast, powerful Assisted Opening innovation that brings the old-world design straight into the future.
- Assisted Opening: flipper deploys the blade fast
- Smooth Opening: IKBS™ ball bearing pivot deploys the blade smooth
- Exceptional Grip: G10 handle provides grip in all conditions
- Easy Closing: Liner Lock can be easily closed with one hand
- Carry Options: Adjustable clip for left or right hand carry
- Visual Appeal: Brass backspacer
Jesper Voxnaes of Loegstrup, Denmark is known for his signature Scandinavian style: clean lines, minimal design, and high usability. But he was challenged to craft a knife to incorporate something different: Assisted Opening. In short, he delivered. A satin-finished drop point blade meets the durable textured G10 handle for a sturdy grip deep in the wet woods. The real magic happens when you fire it up. Nudge the blade open part way and Assisted Opening activates, snapping it open at super high speed. The IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system makes for a smooth rotation and a liner lock keeps it solidly in place.
The Tueto™ is a powerful new take on old-world tradition.
How Assisted Opening Works
It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation the blade opens at an impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
When Jesper needs to test a design, he only has to step into his own backyard. The harsh elements and conditions of the fjords and forests in his native Denmark do the rest. When he was starting out, no one was making the kind of knives he wanted to design so he learned by trial and error. Apparently his efforts paid off given his IF Award in 2013 for one of the Top European Designs. Now he creates and uses knives like the Amicus® as he sails, camps, and drives off-road. Which is more often than not.
