When he sat down at his bench to dream up the Ritual™, designer Alan Folts of Melbourne, Florida was imagining what a Persian fixed blade would look like if it had evolved over generations and most recently landed in your pocket. This contemporary tactical folder is built with a long, curved blade crafted of strong, edge-holding stainless steel. It folds neatly into the resin-infused fiber handle with a nostalgic stainless steel bolster.
When Alan challenged himself to truly set the Ritual™ apart from knives of the past, he built it around Assisted Opening. 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 Ritual™ looks like an heirloom and acts like a high-tech tactical.
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 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.
