We had these custom made for us. Use these thumb studs to add onto a folding knife blade (like a Buck 110) to make it a one handed opener. Compare these to other bolt on thumb studs for quality of materials and construction.
NOTE: You are ordering 1 at a time. We are showing 2 studs here for clarity of illustration. Feel free to order several!
- I'm floored with this vendorA few things here - first off, the product works fantastically.
1. It's extremely easy to install. All you have to do is tighten the bolt wherever you want it to rest.
2. The product doubles as a counterweight to your knife (can be installed anywhere on the blade). If you'd like to balance out your blade, this gives you a ton of leeway.
3. The product triples as a rounded/gnurled finger rest (similar in practice to jimping) if applied near the hinge. It makes using the knife significantly more comfortable and ergonomic.
4. It effectively makes any two handed knife a one handed knife (highly recommended for something like an opinel).
I know its cheesy, but I'm floored with how much love this vendor puts into their work. They included the allen wrench needed to install (honestly, I wasn't expecting this - most companies from amazon wouldn't supply it), an "I make knives" decal, and a carabiner free of charge. You can tell these guys care about what they do, and it shows in all of the effort that goes into their work. On top of it all, the product made it here ahead of schedule.
Couldn't be happier with this so far, I've already recommended this to some guys at work.
- WowDidn’t think I could love my Buck 110 more, but opening it one handed without using the gravity drop proved me wrong. Just made a perfect knife even better. Wait, is that even possible? Guess so. Thanx Midwest Knifemakers!
- Works good, but care needed.It works as advertised, but be careful of stripping out the socket hole on the set screw. Also make sure you don't install it over the cutting edge as it will interfere with sharpening on one side. You don't have to tighten very hard once you set it where you want it.
