The Nug

Large knives may be more functional overall but chances are you’re more likely to carry a micro knife around on a daily basis for reasons of practicality. That said, most are too small to use safely, and that’s where JHO Knives’ The Nug stands out. At just two inches long and with unassuming looks it’s perfect to slip into a pocket alongside keys or a wallet. It’s solidly built of G5 titanium, fitted with a heat treated S35VN 0.71-inch steel blade, and features a hole to slide a finger through for solidifying your grip so it won’t slip and slice you. The short blade sits on a ball bearing pivot and can be discreetly opened in a pocket, though the closed Nug works to protect your knuckles if used for protection un-deployed. Available in black, satin (shown), stone washed, and two tone.
