A folding knife connects the blade to the handle through a pivot, allowing the blade to fold into the handle. To prevent injury to the knife user through the blade accidentally closing on the user's hand, folding knives typically have a locking mechanism. Different locking mechanisms are favoured by various individuals for reasons such as perceived strength (lock safety), legality, and ease of use. Popular locking mechanisms include: Lock back, Liner Lock and Frame Lock.
I just received my Arsons Damascus tracker knife and am extremely pleased. I've been looking for a good scout style sheath with knife and this one is extremely well made from 1st impression. It has a nice looking ring. The craftsmanship and weight are more than i expected. I hike and camp and will be using this knife. I will know how it actually holds up over time---

I have to give the knife itself a five based on the quality for the price. It's comfortable, and at this size could find applications in a range of tasks from mid-small to mid-large. It's a solid full integrql and is aesthetically attractive and fancy (who wants a fancy workhorse?) The ironwood handle is great, and I'd rate it separately as a 5 star. It is razor sharpe can clean shave.

Wow, I really like these knives, this is the second one I have purchased from Arsons store. The fit and finish of the knife are truly exceptional, the micarta handle is especially well done. This is a work of art. This knife and leather sheaths are a among the best, most historically accurate edged weapon reproes I have ever seen.

Knife collector for 10 years now, and I have some really cool ones. my one thing in the last few years is that the knife has to be fully functional.I drive semi trucks for a living and use knives big and small on a daily basis. and i can honestly say that out of the 100 + knives i have, this one is by far the best.

Extremely happy with these set of tracker knives. I have spent more money on leather sheaths alone, which was why I was unsure of this deal.Quality of the knives are shocking. Arsons are definitely pouring their heart out in what they do and it shows. Sharp as hell, full tang, sturdy handle.Sheath made from thick leather, holds knife well, quality snaps.

Absolutely ridiculously robust blade and design. Classic trench knife.I have a lot of knives of varying quality and price, and this is easily one of my faves. Workable, serviceable Damascus steel, well designed for so many applications, but HUGE. I won't use it much, but I love it.

This knife design is unique and yet practical. The blade is super sharp and amazing looking. It comes with a super high quality sheath. All the materials they use are sourced with a lot of thought and pride. The overall craftsmanship and attention to detail is top notch. I’m very pleased and impressed. Money well spent.

Once again Arsons has brought a high quality blade to the table and that’s not surprising considering that Arsons has a solid background in blade craftsmanship. This Damascus steel knife is both thick and full tang as well as down right wicked looking. You’re definitely gonna enjoy this knife I know I do.

Received the knife in good condition and beautiful made. I liked the looks on the first sight, almost instant reply on detailed questions convinced me. Very happy with it now! You can tell, that it is hand-made and that is what I call character. Definitely not my last purchase!

As a fan of the Crocodile Dundee films this knife is a dream come true. The polish on the blade was great and also fine grooves, and the handle is both comfortable and gorgeous to look at. The sheath was a special treat being real leather. A great product! Make sure to soak the handle in vegetable oil for 24 hours and to keep your blade lightly coated with either vegetable---
