If you're into EDC knives, you're bound to come across custom work from Scandinavian designer Jesper Voxnaes. His handmade creations blend modern materials with traditional designs, resulting in quality tools that usually come with a hefty (yet justified) price tag. The Amicus, his newest collaboration with knife maker CRKT, has all the looks of Jesper's custom knives but in a more affordable package.

The Amicus applies Voxnaes's signature 'simpler is better' design language in nearly every aspect of the knife. It's a larger knife, yet the balanced proportions make it just as capable for both outdoors and EDC use alike. Ergonomic stainless steel handles, a beefy 3.4” 8Cr13Mov blade, and several carry options (a two-way clip and lanyard hole) round out a great production knife from one of the industry's top designers.

If you've been looking to add a Jesper Voxnaes knife to your collection, now's your chance to do it without breaking the bank. Available with a combination serrated blade or the traditional plain edge, you can pick up one of these awesome knives via the link below.

How does this compare to the Benchmade Griptillian series?

While both knives have similar sizes (3.4" blade), it's hard to compare them directly when you factor in the huge price difference. The Griptilian series runs about 3x more than the Amicus. For the extra money, you get more premium blade steels and handle options on the Griptilian.

The Amicus features a thumb hole and framelock, whereas the Griptilian offers a lefty-friendly AXIS lock and thumb studs. I'd say this comes down to preference as both lockups are solid.

One other big difference is weight — the Amicus weighs roughly twice as much as the Griptilian, but on a beefy folder as it is, you might appreciate that heft in your hand.

Overall I think they're both solid offerings, but I'd imagine for many, it'd boil down to their budget.
