    From Forseti:

    The definition of a confidant is a close and trusted friend. This was our inspiration for this knife design. Remember when you were young and your dad or grandpa always carried that small pocket knife? He used it for everything. It was a tool that he trusted. This is why we named this small pocket knife the Confidant. It will become a close and trusted friend.

    With a blade barely over 2", this knife is not meant to be anything other than a daily carry work horse. Whether that is just part of your everyday carry or if you work on a ranch and need a small knife for opening hay bales and other everyday chores. This knife will handle it in style. Speaking of the handle, each one of these handmade knives comes with horn handles. Every single knife is going to be unique. Some handles will be dark. Others will be light. Some will show marbling and others opaque. This is what we love about using natural materials. It makes each knife unique.

    The stainless steel bolster and the brass, carved liners give this knife a heritage look. It is definitely a knife your grandfather would have carried. The lockback will keep the knife opened and locked when you want and finger nail groove will help you open the blade. This knife is definitely small enough to fit into your pants pocket, but we have included a leather sheath with belt loop for those that would prefer belt carry. You won't be disappointed with this beautiful little knife, and you may be surprised that you carry on the tradition of carrying this knife as your Confidant.

    About Forseti Steel:

    The secret to forging authentic Damascus steel knives has long been lost, but Forseti Steel stays as true to the tradition as they can by commissioning smiths with Damascus ancestry to hand-make all of their blades. The artists behind the enamoring water-like patterns of folded and pounded steel have all learned their skills and techniques from the generations that worked the metals before them.

    In addition to paying tribute to the Damascus practice in technique and appearance, Forseti Steel shows its respect for history's heroes, legends, and characters with their knives' names. The 9", walnut-handled Sentinel, for example, honors the Sentinels who stand guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington.
