The Isola was presented early March 2022. This is only the second time to be able to score one on Launch 15 since I originally launch the model.
This features Mokume inlay in a amber anodized frame. Clip, screws and pivot rings are also amber anodized and the spacer is mokume. The blade is hand rubbed RWL34.
The ISOLA is a smaller locking folder with a blade under 3”. It is somewhat related to the NEO and ORSO design language where you will be able to spot some DNA but at the same time see some new ideas and features explored.
This is the prefect knife is you are looking for a somewhat smaller every day carry piece. The construction is a frame lock with hardened steel lock insert. The blade runs on bearings and opens via a flipper tab. The lanyard hole is integrated within the frame and backspacer for a low key function. The clip is a new process for me where I combined the classic bent clip with the beauty of a 3D milled clip you have become to know on my knives. This new hybrid offers a smooth, strong clip yet with easy deployment in and out of your pocket.
