If you are searching for a new EDC pocket knife you might be interested in a new knife design created by John Gonzalez taking the form of the Dervish Wyrm, described by its makers as a “little blade with a big attitude”. Launched via Kickstarter this month the small knife has already raised more than $23,000 thanks to over 130 backers. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its construction and unique design.
John explains a little more about the inspiration behind the Dervish Wyrm. “Over the years, my Silverfish line of mini-knives has been very popular with both collectors and the EDC (Every Day Carry) crowd; but while they excelled at conceal-ability and minimalism, the handles were a little small for serious use. This limitation lead me to design the Wyrm. The first handmade prototype got a lot of attention on social media and the knife forums so I knew I had to explore it further. “
“The slight overall curve of the design isn’t just attractive, it mimics the shape of the inside of your palm and provides a controlled and comfortable grip. The very sharp 1 5/8″ blade is large enough for most cutting tasks, from pealing apples to cutting open boxes; from sharpening pastels to cleaning trout. It’s the ultimate EDC tool for both urban and rural environments, and the blade length is legal in areas where many other knives aren’t (please know your own local laws).”
