The E.C.S. (Emergency Condiment Spreader) was designed by Brian due to the lack of functionality in knives for river guides. Brian spent years as a whitewater rafting guide and saw that all the guide knives available had either a weak or overly complicated retention system. Brian's knife is designed with a sturdy and easy-to-use lock - the simple act of grabbing it releases it from the sheath. A great design.

This ECS has a tumble/satin finished tanto blade with notched thumb-rest, .121" blade stock and 1.059" blade depth, full tang construction. The handle has green canvas micarta scales. Comes with a kydex sheath with Tek-Lok and a Fellhoelter zippered case. Excellent condition.

"I am a folder maker. While there will always be the occasional fixed blade, folders are my passion. The steels I enjoy working with include CPM154, ATS-34, 440C, S30V, and Stainless Damascus from Devin Thomas. All of the metal parts on my knives that can be Titanium are Titanium including frames, liners, thumbstuds, bolsters, clips and spacers. Pretty much everything except for the blade. I often anodize a substantial portion of my titanium, and can get a deep green that few makers succeed at. As far as handle materials go, I mostly use Carbon fiber, G10, or Micarta. I use large bronze pivot bushings in all of my folders, and either Nylatron or Bronze washers. All of my parts are made in-house except the screws. I have an old Bridgeport Mill, an older Logan Lathe (1943), a Hardcore grinder, and various other tools, lots of them made by myself. I also do all of my own Heat treating in an EvenHeat Oven." My knives have won several major awards, including Best Tactical Folder at the Blade Show 2011.
