Grovemade Titanium Minimalist Knife

Grovemade used the Japanese higonokami knife as inspiration for their new Titanium Minimalist Knife, so if you don't have $200 to spend on a new pocket folder, feel free to get an actual Japanese higonokami for minus one of those zeros here.

That said, if you're in the market for finer things, Grovemade replaces the brass of cheaper knives with titanium. Ultra-light, ultra-strong, corrosion-resistant titanium. It's like the vodka of metals. The Titanium Minimalist Knife is titanium to the core too.

To prove their craftsmanship is as superior as their material choice, Grovemade eschews the "standard sandwich method" of knife making in favor of smithing the Titanium Minimalist Knife as a monobody custom machined from a solid block of the metal. The smooth, sexy result accounts for a good portion of the folder's price, as manufacturing this way is more difficult and time-consuming.

The Titanium Minimalist Knife is all manual - open it with your thumb pressed on the end of the tang. Friction holds it closed. Dimensions are 6.55" open, with a 2.8" blade length; weight is 2.6 ounces. Grovemade also engraves each Titanium Minimalist Knife with "Ti," the chemical symbol for titanium.
