Field Duty Folder: EDC Knife Scales

The Road To The Right Fit

Knife and outdoor enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for Liong Mah Design’s Field Duty Folder. The Field Duty Folder is the first in a series of pre-orders that were slated for release in early 2023.

What makes this knife so appealing is that it features an interchangeable scale-bolster pair. To maintain the integrity of the craftsmanship and the flushness of the scale to the bolster, the interchangeable scales will be offered as a scale-bolster set. This is the first time an LMD knife has featured this option in design. It’s been highly requested and LMD has delivered.

For 24hrs, at a special LMD pre-order price point, this knife did not last long! For those who like to handle and hold their knives in-person before deciding on it or if you missed out on this one, don’t worry, it will be available at your local dealer.

How It Stacks Up

The well-suited Field Duty folder is designed to meet the challenges of outdoor use. The drop point blade is flat ground for great cutting performance.

It’s paired with an opening hole cutout on the blade and reversible titanium spring clip for more versatility. The Field Duty Folder comes with stonewash titanium handles bolsters, backspacers and clip.

The Field Duty Folder features a slightly smaller blade at 3.5 inch than the original , which has a 3.7 inch blade length. The overall length of the both knives are the same. Liong Mah Design’s goal is always to try to maximize the blade to handle ratio, while ensuring the edge of the blade doesn’t come in contact with a user’s hand. This ratio is not a detail that every maker focuses on, but LMD wants to make sure customers get an important choice.
