HTM Kirby Lambert SNAP Folding Knife

IMG_3273New for 2013 is the HTM Knives (Hand Tech Made) SNAP.  Famed Canadian knife maker Kirby Lambert designed the SNAP and HTM picked it up as a semi-custom production knife.  I immediately thought of an old WWII-era U.S. Mk 2 pineapple hand grenade when I saw the knife’s handle.  But, of course, the SNAP is actually a friendly thing to have in the hand.

SNAP’s 3 1/2″ clip point blade has a recurve, which gives the edge extra belly. The blade rolls open on either HTM’s Maxx Glide Pivot Bearing System or via their Spring Assisted Opening system.  This knife is a well-executed version of Lambert’s 2012 Blade Show and West Coast Custom Knife Show Best Tactical Knife Awards winner.

  •  154CM Stonewashed blade
  •  Aircraft aluminum Mil-Spec Hard Coated Handle
  •  Unique machined inlay pattern for non-slip forward and backward grip
  •  Deep pocket carry clip
  •  Non-glare blackened blade
  • 5.8 ounces
  • Made in the USA

IMG_3274The SNAP has an MSRP of $349.00.  The one I photographed was the model with the Spring Assisted Opener.  It fired off with a bang on a pull of the index finger.  My pictures do not do justice to the pleasing aesthetics of this knife.
