When you watch Louis demonstrate his knives at trade shows like SHOT and BLADE you will see that he has a trued passion for what he does. According to Louis his fist design, the SNAG made its industry debut back in 2010 at BLADE Show, twelve years later he has released quote a diverse portfolio of products from knives, to pens to men’s rings and other jewelry.
What I like about today’s knife, the Krudo Vice are the options when it comes to deployment. There is the pocket Sang thumb ramp, the flipper and the friction folder thing that sticks out at the end, please excuse my dumbassedness, but I honestly don’t know that part is called, but it will flip the blade open beyond fast with a flick.
No matter how you deploy the Vice, it will be lighting fast due to the ceramic ball bearing washers. And at a blade length of just 3.5”, it’s pretty much legal to EDC everywhere.
