This Model 1929 has a dark denim micarta handle.
The Finch Knives Model 1929 is a throwback to the kind of knives your grandpa carried, but built with modern mechanisms and materials. The blade is made from flat-ground 154CM stainless steel that can handle hard use. The handle has a shield inlay much like a traditional knives, and satin finished bolsters as well. On the back side, the bolster forms a frame lock. This Barlow-esque knife is sure to be the star of your collection!
The classic tale of being "on the hunt for that perfect EDC knife" plagues us all, but I think this might actually be the one! My Finch 1929 came screaming sharp out the box with a great edge grind! The blade centering is perfect and with just a dab of oil, there's nearly a drop-shut action without any break in! The 1929 is denser (heavier) than other popular knives in similar or larger sizes, so if you're always looking at the "ounce-to-blade ratio," you might not enjoy this one. For most people, though, it should be just fine! The pocket clip is not deep carry, but it IS titanium, and quite smooth in and out the pocket. The micarta scales are also finished much smoother than I was expecting, but I'm not disappointed nor does this bother me! In fact, because of how smooth they are, the fit-and-finish of the 1929 is nearing the "flawless" category. For a production knife, the tolerances here are something to be proud of (seriously, like, 10% away from feeling seamless to the touch). If you're considering this knife, stop considering it already and drop it in your cart! I'm not disappointed, and I don't think you will be either! Cheers! Stanton
Love everything about it. Action was a little wonky at first but it smoothed out. Drop shut, stupid sharp, no complaints.
