Designer Ed Van Hoy dreamed up this historical design after challenging the most basic principles of a folding knife—who says there’s only one way for a blade to swing open? His innovation has given rise to some of the most unique and useful everyday carry knives on the market. Most of his Snap Lock™ designs feature a money clip and are low profile so they’re never a burden to have on hand.
Looking at the shelves in his shop, you’d almost think Ed specializes in awards rather than knives. But that just comes with the territory when you are pushing the limits with your designs. His insatiable ingenuity has fueled a 30-year career full of highly sought after knives by audiences around the globe. Ed is living proof that if you love what you do, the rest comes easy.
