BGBCCSLMDRAG: Custom Slim Dragotac "Piemontes" Friction Folder

Bastien Coves Custom Knives

Many people love the Dragotac series for its versatile flat ground Wharncliffe style blade and wildly ergonomic pistol grip style handle. However, lots of them are restricted to the types of knives (i.e. no locking knives) that they can carry. What we have here is a solution to that problem; a non-locking Slim Dragotac dubbed the Piemontes.

The Slim or Compact Dragotac "Piemontes" is a superb do-it-all kind of folder that will replace your tried and tested Svord Peasant Knife. It's ergonomic, slender, utilitarian, feather-light, and tactical—when it has to be. The 4.125" blade is made from D2 tool steel with a dark acid stonewashed finish. The contoured black G10 handle is constructed with a 3/4-length backspacer and its absence of liners makes it super lightweight for its size. It has excellent fit and finish and custom Aaron Sybrant leather drop sheath is just the icing on the cake. We highly recommend this custom Bastinelli design to you—manufactured in the USA by Bastien Coves himself.
