old idea,
new production

The basic idea of the friction folder is atleast thousand years old. It is very simple and reliable to operate. At the end of the JT-friction folders blade there is a curl, which acts as a spring and locks the blade, making the folder safe to use. For this invention JT got the patent in November 1998. Some models have a bottle opener included in the blade. JT-friction folders are always one-of-a-kind designs. Some examples below.
