Todd Begg - Integral Fixed Blade Midtech AND Integral Folder!!!

Some of you may have heard rumors of a Todd Begg Midtech. The first two have just been completed in time for the Vegas Show! The frame is S30V which is CNC machined. The blades are hand ground and hand rubbed. I think the coolest thing about the knife is how he's taken his inline integral look and utilized CNC technology to offer us something he couldn't do on his manual mill - A CURVED FLUTE!!!

Beyond launching a midtech, Todd couldn't help himself, and started to delve into the world of folders. This prototype is still a work in progress, but here are some specs: Framelock folder with handles designed and constructed very similarly to his fixed blades. Todd made all the hardware except the screws. Note the fuller in the blade as the opening device. Note the mosaic pin machined into the oversized pivot pin.

Thanks for the preview Mitch. I like the "speed holes". Just a little something different to spice things up. Hope to see you and Beggs Blades in Vegas. ....Kevin

Todd,
Great blades, wish I could be there in Reno to see them first hand!

Your blades definately have a face.

Jon
