FX-518 ZW: Dragotac Piemontes Compact Friction Folder Ziricote
This Bastinelli Compact Dragotac is a gentleman's folder that will add a touch of class to your everyday carry. It's the compact version of the Big Dragotac knife but as with many guns, the term compact is used very loosely. It sports a 3.0 inch Bohler N690Co steel blade with a high sheen satin finish and a full length cutting edge with the Fox/Bastinelli logo on the front side and an extended tang opener and jimping along the spine. It's very sharp out of the box as you'd expect and the flat ground modified wharncliffe or upswept sheepsfoot style blade with a fine point is a very versatile cutter - excellent for slicing. The handle is an ideal size for all hand sizes and allows for multiple grip options. If you need to choke up close to the blade for precise work - you can. If you need to choke back on the blade for added reach - you can. Simply pull down on the lever to engage and keep your thumb on it when open for an acting in.lock in. when cutting. The spine is crowned and polished with just about 3/4 of an inch of highly efficient thumb ramp.
The slim finger grooved wood handle fills the palm nicely. The Ziricote is smooth, not slippery built with open standoffs. There is no pocket clip on this lightweight design, however this version does feature full stainless liners. The Dragotac includes a lanyard hole, hardware adjustment tool and genuine brown leather slip pouch for safe pocket carry and storage.
