Folding Knife Lock Types – The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 233

On the mid-week supplemental episode of The Knife Junkie podcast (episode 233), Bob “The Knife Junkie” DeMarco has a “must see” or listen to episode covering folding knife lock types.

Bob starts the show with his “pocket checks” — the Off-Grid Enforcer XL and the Bastinelli Anomaly — while in his “state of the collection,” it’s a couple of “oldies but goodies” — the Cold Steel Voyager 5” Bowie and the Buck 119.

And in Knife Life News, Bob covers news from Damned Designs, which has four new budget folders.
