Unconventional Pocket Knives

Origin's TILI Aims to Redefine Pocket Knives with Fixed Blade Style

— June 15, 2021 — Lifestyle
Origin Handcrafted Goods is launching a new Kickstarter campaign for the TILI, a unique pocket knife featuring a rugged fixed-blade design, as they attempt to carve out a place in the market apart from the folding blade styles that typically dominate the scene.

Finding inspiration in the tools of old, the simple yet versatile TILI is a hard-working pocket knife built for everyday utility. The compact high-carbon steel blade features a 2.5 inch (6 cm) cutting edge, and the full piece measures in at just under 6 inches (15 cm) from tip to tail. The durability of the high-carbon steel and strength and stability of the singular fixed blade design means the TILI can perform all the duties of a folding knife without the hassle of loose pins, wobbly blades, or gummed up components.

The TILI is offered in three styles: a skeleton frame handle, a hemp-wrapped handle, and a wood handle crafted using whiskey barrel oak. Each knife fits snugly into a low-profile leather sheath which can be worn comfortably in a pocket, or on the waist with the optional belt loop.
