Tom Hitchcock is an industrial designer based in Talent, Oregon. After designing a particularly complicated multi-tool, Tom thought, "Now I'd like to design something simple, like a knife." Tom began with the perimeter frame, which is a single piece of 420J2 stainless steel, formed to fit the hand. He thoughtfully split the frame with swells at the top, bottom and butt to add more comfort without adding weight. The blade shape was then dictated by the handle shape, which we can only call a "Hitchcock blade." It has a high, flat grind with a gently curved razor-sharp edge. The model 5160 single-hole blade is plain for easy cleaning, while the fancy model 5150 receives five lightening holes in the blade spine. The Hole In One's locking mechanism locks both open and closed. Most important, when the knife is gripped tightly during use, the lock also grips tighter for increased safety.
This is a great knife for EDC (every day carry). i wear mine on my front belt loop everywhere and it comes in handy. However if you get stopped by a police person they will automaticly assume you're carrying it to do "damage". and they won't be able to get it off your belt loop for twenty minuets.
