This week we’re spotlighting the Pohl Force Mike Three and Four Outdoor Folders. The Mike knives are the newest addition to the high-quality EOD series from Pohl Force, and meet those same precise standards. The EOD series is manufactured by LionSteel, Pohl Force’s production partner in Italy, so you know the quality is top-notch.
The 3.75″ blade sits right in between Pohl Force’s Alpha and Bravo series, making this a really excellent option for an everyday carry. Deployment action via the ambidextrous thumb stud is ridiculously smooth. Blade is constructed from 59HRC Niolox tool steel, the Mike three sporting a drop-point style blade and the Mike four a tanto. The sturdy frame lock with replaceable steel insert on this series keeps the blade very secure once extended.
The handle is made from two large pieces of black PVD aluminum, which is a first for Pohl Force. It has a curved, ergonomic shape with an indent for your index finger that helps it sit really nicely in the hand, with the milled grooves along the side making for a reliable grip. For that added bit of functionality there’s a small glass breaker tip on the butt of the handle. The only detractor I can see on this model is that you feel the pocket clip against your hand a bit, but it doesn’t create too much discomfort.
The clip slides on and off really smoothly, letting you draw this bad boy at a moment’s notice. If you’re the type to get excited by accessories there are a couple of neat extras thrown into the nylon case; a skull lanyard and Velcro Pohl Force badge.
These Mike Three and Four folders from Pohl Force are a high quality, durable option for an everyday carry blade, designed to meet the most extreme demands. To learn more about these knives click here. To see our entire inventory, visit knifecenter.com
