GrandWay 4172 K is an interesting variation on two types of knives - Spanish clasp knife and so-called semi-folding blade knives, which in Europe are known as Verlängerungsmesser ("extended knife").
From the clasp knife here we have the general style and form of both the handle and the blade. As for the semi-folding type, the blade is much longer than its handle.
As a result, we have a folding blade knife of medium size with a blade of quite an impressive length. The handle of the knife serves as an extension to the folding metal tang, into which the blade is hidden during folding.
When the knife is unfolded, the most part of this tang, without causing any inconveniences to the grip, goes into the handle of the knife, while working as a stopper, preventing its folding.
Most of the folding knives are suitable for EDC (every day carry), but the compactness of such knives cannot but affect the size of the blade. This knife is a good solution to this problem.
A medium-sized handle holds an impressive blade, which can slice a large loaf of bread and fruits, such as melons. In addition this knife has an interesting design, which pleases the eye with recognizable classical forms, and will appeal to the fans of non-typical folders.
Strong and sturdy nylon sheath comes with this knife.
