Jack Wolf’s Gunslinger Includes a lot of First for the Company

Jack Wolf Knives broke fresh ground with today’s release, the Gunslinger Jack. This one fuses modern and traditional elements in a way that is new to the company’s line, with a one-hand opening mechanism, pocket clip, and a lock.

A very young company, Jack Wolf Knives has already made a comfortable space for itself in the high-end knife market. The label focuses on high-performance slipjoints, clearly inspired by historical patterns but updated always updated in both materials and design. Jack Wolf’s blade and handle shapes integrated the lines more commonly seen on modern folders – look at the Cyborg Jack for a good representation of that style – but, despite these cues from one-hand opening knives, no Jack Wolf release has been designed to open with one hand – until now.

The Gunslinger Jack’s 3.23-inch clip point blade comes with a front flipper in tow; running one’s thumb over the tab kicks the blade open in conjunction with the ceramic ball bearing pivot. Front flippers are a pretty trendy opening method these days so, if you’re in the market for a high-end knife like the Gunslinger Jack, you’re probably familiar with the mechanics. You’re also probably familiar with the blade steel, S90V: this stainless powder metallurgy steel has a fearsome amount of edge retention, and should withstand long bouts of everyday carry before it needs sharpening.

That’s not the only new thing on offer here. The Gunslinger Jack is the first locking Jack Wolf design, with a bolster-style frame lock tucked underneath the off-side scale, complete with steel interface element to prevent extra wear and tear on the titanium spring arm. Also new is the presence of a pocket clip; it’s not only made from sculpted titanium and anodized, it also can be removed completely if you want to carry your Gunslinger Jack in the more traditional manner.

The Gunslinger Jack released earlier today and is available now from authorized dealers.
