The Olamic Busker is a compact gentleman's knife, made to be used. High-end pocket knives often have a large blade, but the Busker breaks with that tradition. It is just as sophisticated as the large gentleman's knives, and the build quality is just as good too. The Busker has two opening mechanisms. First is the striking oval thumb hole. This knife also features a front flipper. You control it with your index finger or thumb.
This Busker has the Largo blade, which is a friendly sheepsfoot shape that's easy to use at this size. It's not as intimidating as some other blade shapes, which, coupled with its compact size, makes it perfect for carrying in many places.
The Olamic Busker has a titanium handle and a Böhler M390 steel blade. M390 is one of the most popular premium steels at the moment. It has excellent sharpness retention and great corrosion resistance. The titanium frame lock keeps the blade in place when opened. It has a steel insert with ceramic detent ball, and the blade runs on steel ball bearings with a steel interface between the bearings and the titanium handle.
This specific Busker is relatively modest: the blade has a satin finish, and the handle has been lightly blasted with glass beads. For contrast, the hardware has a blue anodised finish, just like the bright blue backspacer. The pocket clip has the same finish as the handle.
How does Olamic Cutlery work?
Olamic Cutlery has its scales and blades coarsely milled in Italy by a highly skilled specialist. Olamic then customises each knife in California down to the very last detail, ensuring every knife is unique. They offer dozens of different finishes and shapes, meaning that thousands of different combinations can be produced. Some models even have more than two million options! For this reason, the chances of you running into someone with the exact same knife are very slim. That's why Olamic's slogan is: Never the same!
This is in no small part due to the significant amount of workmanship that goes into each creation. The experts at Olamic work on the smallest details by hand. There are so many different finishing options which are uniquely expressed by the different employees, tools, and even the chemistry during anodisation.
