MKM Fara Slip Joint Titanium Knife (MY01-T)


The Fara is an ultra-stylish slipjoint design built for the European knife market, yet we think it’ll be right at home here in the USA. Many manufacturers, like Benchmade and Chris Reeve Knives, noticed the inklings of a change in the market toward EDC slipjoints when they introduced the Proper and Impinda, respectively, last year and each was an overwhelming success. The Fara follows in these footsteps, pairing a classic clip point blade with an ergonomic handle that slides in and out of the leather belt sheath with ease. It features pretty light action for a slipjoint, opening and closing pretty freely, with a half-stop safety to prevent accidental closures. Lucas Burnley nailed it with this design and it’s our first experience with Mercury, and we have to say we’re impressed. This knife is absolutely on par with the Impinda, and if you know anything about the quality and precision of a Chris Reeve knife, that is the highest possible praise we can give any knife.
