Grovemade’s Minimalist knife is a perfectly simple balance of utility and beauty. It takes inspiration from the Japanese Higonokami and has a satisfyingly clean, simple design that is made possible by a single piece handle. Instead of sandwiching scales that require some kind of fastener that is hard to hide, the Minimalist has a unibody construction. The blade swings out with your thumb easily, but beware, there is no locking mechanism. Instead, the design is meant to be kept open from friction and your thumb on the back of the blade. If that sounds scary, maybe look for something else. If you’re confident you’re capable of wielding this beauty, head on over and pick one up for $99-$119 depending on the material.
