    I didn't do a ton this year, but I think this would fit here.

    a solid gold baby? Maybe we'll never know.

    There's a ton of makers out there who make far better "tactical" folders then I do.... so why is this category seeing so few nominations? I'll throw one of my "tacticals" here that sorta blurs the lines......maybe that'll get the nominations going!

    This is my small "Gen2" flipper done in full Mosaic Damascus/416SS laminate steel with ceramic bearings and Ti hardware.

    I think the trickiest part with this category is what is 'Tactical'?

    Personally, I loathe the word 'tactical'. It seems to me that it's much more a case of being 'modern' in terms of materials and mechanisms and components than it is really being 'tactical'.

    If you have two identical folders, both flippers, both using bearings both using titanium screws, but one has carbon fiber bolsters and kevlar scales and the other has premium koa scales, neither one is any more tactical than the other. In fact, you have a category for the latter called 'Dress Tactical' anyway.

    So Ed's right.....anybody that has made a folder that uses a liner lock, screws and any type of one-handed opening action, regardless of handle material, post them up here!

    I would say that we have a category for one type of folder, that would cover old fashioned knives, slip-joints, and *maybe* really highly ornate smaller modern pocket knives, and then another category here that would cover just about every other type of folder.

    Agree. Maybe "classic folder" for slipjoints and luxury knives versus "modern folder" for framelocks, mid-tech, etc is a better breakdown.

    This one kind of blurs the lines of tactical also, but it's a beautiful knife by Peter Martin.
