When it comes to my EDC knives, I tend to be pretty traditional. My stag-handled Case Canoe knife trades pocket time with a Benchmade 940-2 and a ZT Knives 0350. Novelty generally doesn’t enter the equation. However, I also appreciate innovative engineering when I see it. When I first saw the Eclipse from brand new knife company Fulcrum Knives, I appreciated the cleverness of the design and the engineering that went into the knife. While it won’t replace my EDC knives, it makes a lot of sense hanging from a keychain.
The Eclipse falls into the “nanoblade” category and it was designed to be ergonomic and comfortable. Your hand naturally falls into a comfortable and stable position. There is also a finger notch which helps further stabilize your grip. The Eclipse features a Wharncliffe style blade which many say is one of the most utilitarian, “get stuff done”, blade designs.
