A Knife You’ll Never Leave at Home, Now in New Colors

Keys, wallet, phone, Gent: Our third collaboration with Ferrum Forge Knife Works, the Gent is the classiest, most portable, and most affordable to date. Designed by Ferrum Forge, a two-man operation out of San Diego known for producing small batches of custom knives, it’s an exciting new direction compared with the beefy folders they’ve built their reputation on. Made to fit just as well in a pair of blue jeans as a pair of slacks, it’s also small enough that you’ll hardly notice it in your pocket. The 3-inch blade, made from premium CPM-S35VN steel, is suitable for anything from opening packages and cutting loose threads off a shirt, to slicing an apple and removing staples. Crafted with a 6AL4V titanium frame that’s surrounded by smooth G-10 scales (in three handsome colors), the handle features a deep-carry pocket clip for tip-up carry on either side.

Note: At checkout, choose between black, blue, and OD green color options. This item is in stock and will ship within 1 business day. Your payment method will be charged 2 hours after joining. Cancellations are accepted until that time. The drop will launch and end each day to collect purchases. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we can only ship this knife to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.

Discreet, Reliable & Easy to Open

Measuring 6.6 inches long and weighing just 2.4 ounces, the Gent is a take-anywhere folder that outperforms its small stature. Thanks to the caged bearing system—a mechanism used in nearly all of Ferrum Forge’s custom knives—it flips open effortlessly with a press on the flipper tab. Once open, the blade won’t close on you: It locks in place by way of the titanium frame lock, a characteristic not found on many gentleman’s folders. Like the Crux, the Gent sports a single clean line from the tip to the pommel, which, in combination with the thick blade and lightweight frame, creates superb visual and physical balance that you’ll feel right away when handling the knife. And, thanks to your input, we’ve redesigned the pocket clip, too. It now supports tip-up deep carry for both righties and lefties. Made from stainless steel, it’s polished to a satin finish to match the blade.

A Closer Look at S35VN Steel

Developed by Crucible Industries (one of the leading manufacturers of specialty steels for the cutlery industry) and Chris Reeve (pioneer of the integral frame lock, featured on the Gent), S35VN is perhaps the most balanced blade steel ever created in terms of all-around performance. It’s made through a process known as Crucible Powdered Metallurgy, which results in near perfect consistency in the distribution of carbides. Compared to conventional melting practices, the CPM process produces a steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grindability, and toughness.

About Ferrum Forge

Founded in 2009, Ferrum Forge started from humble beginnings in Eliot Williamson’s garage in Southern California. Using found pieces of steel like old files and leaf springs, Eliot gradually taught himself the art of knifemaking and metallurgy. As his skills and passion grew, so too did the demand for his work. Luckily, Eliot’s brother Chris joined the team in 2012 to help expand Ferrum Forge to what it is today: a small operation dedicated to designing and producing custom knives through a rigorous process of development, machining, iteration, and quality control.
