JKCSW: Custom Stowaway Folding Knife
John Kubasek Custom Knives
John Kubasek custom knives provide you with well-built cutting tools at a great value. John has been in the knife industry for nearly thirty years and has seen his fair share of fads come and go. His designs have withstood the test of time since they're clean, classic, and functional. You won't find any art knives coming from John. He builds users and he builds them darn well.
The Stowaway is an awesome compact folding knife design produced by John Kubasek. It's such a cool design, like the Ed Halligan KISS, that pairs a chisel ground blade, frame lock, and pocket clip yet it can also be carried around the neck as it includes a beaded chain. The 3.375" clip point blade is made from D2 tool steel and is skeletonized to reduce weight without affecting performance. The handle is 6AL4V titanium with the awesome "Tab Lock" feature, i.e. a frame lock. There is a small piece of carbon fiber attached to the rear of the handle that serves two purposes. First, it acts as a protector for the tip of the knife in the closed position and secondly, it aids in the feeling of comfort in the palm of the hand during use. The deep carry bayonet pocket clip allows you to use this knife as a money clip. This is an ingenious design that's extremely well built and should be carried on your person at all times. It's handmade in the USA and solidly built for daily use cutting tasks.
