    If Glock produced a folder, what should it incorporate?

    My thoughts:
    Glock look and feel
    Good steel (N690?)
    rugged, still lightweight
    realtively slim
    ambi clip for tip up carry
    easy to disassemble
    various sizes (s, m, l)
    serrated/plain versions
    armorer´s tool incorporated (also serves for disassembly of the knife)
    few parts
    price range about 90-120 USD, depending on size.

    What do you think? Any input?
    Do you think the market needs this?

    Aside from the disassembly thing, it already exists. Called a Benchmade Griptillian. Or, if you prefer, Spyderco Endura/Delica/Ladybug.

    N690 is middle-of-the-road at best. Almost have to go H1 or even Talonite for the corrosion resistance. Pretty sure Tenifer makes for a poor finish on a knife blade.

    No one I know of has ever accused Glocks of being "realtively slim" so I'm not sure how important that is to "Glockness."

    Spyderco makes/made an Endura with a Glocktool; only good for the gun though, not the knife.

    No way Glock goes into that market. Do they even actually make the field knives, or just OEM them? Glock branded Spydies or Benchies might work though. Hardly unprecedented.

    I would want the blade to be S30V but that might make it go past the $120 mark.

    Ease of disassembly, tip up carry, etc...sounds like an Emerson to me! :thumbsup:

    CPM S30v Grips are $115... in a somewhat limited edition. S30v Natives are $40 at Walmart, so I don't think it's that big a deal on the price. Not sure it's the right choice in any event, CPM S3v with a good coating would be more Glock-like. Something tough. L6 would be nice. :thumbsup:

    Some good ideas BUT (no offense) seeing how little Glock put into their fixed blade offerings I really doubt they would corner a fair share of the "folder" market.

    Don't get me wrong, Glock makes an 'OK' fixed blade knife that serves well as a "second knife" or a "trunk knife" but that is about it.

    A good rule of thumb; don't make it a habit to purchase knives made by gun companies. ;)
