Designed by Matthew Lerch in Sussex, Wisconsin

If you’re at war with your garage, this is your commander in chief.


The Directive™ is a tactically inspired everyday carry folder that turns to-do’s into have-done’s. Where it lacks in frills, it makes up in capability.

Initially trained as a watchmaker, Sussex, Wisconsin designer Matthew Lerch understands the perfect intersection of simplicity and performance. His designs are inspired by everything from functional performance in nature to a well-built race engine, and the Directive™ is no exception.

The tanto blade features a sleek black oxide finish and is deployed from black two-tone glass-reinforced nylon handles by a straightforward flipper. A locking liner keeps you safe while the blade is deployed.

Call on the Directive™ for your everyday tasks and it’ll answer with sharp precision and impressive force.
