With inital comments such as 'Badass!', 'Awesome!', and 'Sick!' Our exciting new collaboration with Quartermaster has resulted in this unique, innovative friction folder, which has been designed and produced exclusively for Heinnie Haynes.


We have worked with several knife designers in the past few years and this is our latest venture with the rising star of the knife making world. Quartermaster’s knives are of the highest quality and built like tanks so they immediately caught our attention.


There is something about this knife which makes it stand out from anything else out there, the design is quintessentially Quartermaster, and you can definitely see their distinct way of knife making. It features one G10 and one Titanium scale featuring an laser engraved union jack. The blade is SV35 stainless steel with a stonewash finish and an extended tang, which has been extremely well designed so that it slots effortlessly into the scales and also adds a little more gimping.


The final design feature we want to bring to your attention is the blade lock. This neat little feature will prevent the reverse Tanto blade from unwanted opening. For all those of you who didn’t like friction folders because of their unpredictable opening, you now need not worry. It’s simple to use and effectively holds the blade in the closed position.

    Broken tang makes it useless

    Posted by Sam on 3rd Feb 2020

    Two issues really, 1) The protruding tang means that without the awkward locking pin, that's easily lost, you'll reach into your pocket to find the point of the blade as it's partially unfolded while you've been going about your day. Having to remove and replace a tiny locking pin every time you use it to avoid self-harm is awkward.
    2) The tang broke off entirely at some point, I found the blade half unfolded in my pocket and the tang had snapped. I don't think I'd been doing anything especially rugged that day, it was just another day in the workshop! Anyway, without the tang holding the blade in its deployed position, in combination with the unusual handle angle, makes cutting anything almost impossible. The blade just wants to fold itself away whenever you do anything!
    So credit for a fancy design but the protruding tang on an EDC was maybe not the best idea as it seems relatively delicate.

    Huge design flaw

    Posted by Alan on 2nd Nov 2019

    I wasn't expecting much when I ordered this as Quarter Master knives have somewhat of a stigma about them online, I was initially pleasantly surprised however, the action broke in after a day and is as smooth as my benchmade 940, the little blade shut lock gets easier to operate and the knife is surprisingly ergonomic in hand, the blade shape slices great cardboard stands no chance! And it does appear to hold a great edge for a good while.

    Unfortunately, after using it at work again I heard a little grinding on the bearings, I figured this would be the usual grime, a quick clean and it would be back to the races, sadly, it was not, they have elected for whatever reason to run bearings on straight G10. That's right, the grinding noise I heard was the bearings chewing the G10 up in their track, a very easily remedied solution that the manufacturer could have implemented, change to standard washers or lay a small steel washer to act as a track for the bearings.

    I'm going to have to look for a thin steel washer that fits as I really like the rest of the knife and wish to continue using it, it's a real shame though as another 2 seconds thought and few pence per knife could have really made the difference here.

    Sharp, awkard to open, close and carry.

    Posted by DG on 6th Aug 2019

    The knife comes with a fiddly little rivet to keep the blade locked. It's secured from one side. Very quickly the plastic behind it groves, the rivet then becomes SUPER fiddly to open - and worse - lock. So then a super sharp pointy blade is loose in your pocker.

    Then there is the inch long handle on the back of the blade which reveals itself when the blade is shut. What's the point of that? It catches on everything in your pocket.

    Then there's the locking split pin. Want to carry a loose split pin? You can hide it behind the carry clip if you don't use that, but it scratches the fancy etching if you're not super careful.

    A lot of money for a lot of problems.

    Excellent Blade, Best UK carry knife you can buy

    Posted by David on 26th Jun 2018

    I wasn't sure that I had made the right decision when I ordered this knife as it was a bit more expensive than my standard blades. But I am glad I did! The blade looks small at first but they have really made the most of what is possible within UK daily carry regs. The handle is really ergonomic and I like the harsh grip at the top which proves that extra grip when needed, the blade steel and handle materials are all usually only found on more expensive blades so in that respect its a really good deal.

    Overall amazing knife and simply the best UK legal knife you can buy.

    Brilliant service from Heinnie as always.

    unique, and perfectly made

    Posted by keefo on 6th Mar 2018

    after knowing about this knife for a couple of years and never having the courage to spend £120 on something I wasn't sure about my other half bought one for me because I helped her out so much recently and I told her ive never had a custom knife in my quite frankly large collection. I got the flagged version which looks really good with dark titanium. the G10 is what you would expect and the little blade lock is a must really with the smooth action of the blade threatening to poke you in the leg or worse if carried. the blade is workably sharp but 10 mins with the back of my leather belt and I was able to easily shave the hair on my arm off! ive never managed this on anything other than a scandi grind, impressive!. I intend to look after this knife as its unique and in short supply but I have every confidence that it will excel when needed. brilliant job guys (and thanks to the other half)

    Fabulous pocket/outdoors knife

    Posted by Dan on 20th Aug 2017

    I ordered this chap on a whim with some reservations; but crikey what a knife! The steel is quire remarkable in that it looses its bonkers-sharp (paper-curling) edge almost immediately, but remains hair-popping sharp after several weeks of fairly hard use.

    The ergonomics take a few days to gets used to, but are intuitive and confidence-inspiring after that. It comes in handy like you wouldn't believe, both as a backup knife when camping and generally around the home/office.

    In the weeks I have had this, it has been used to good effect: wood processing, for feather sticks, cutting paracord, opening parcels and packaging, food processing/field dressing. In every arena it excels.

    ace little tac-ti-cool EDC!

    Posted by snappingturtle on 1st Jul 2017

    I had been looking for a quality EDC, and kept on coming back to the HH Mcgrew, I convinced myself I should have one! so my birthday came round and my wallet got lighter! firstly, it is beautifully turned out, quality materials well machined. I spent the first hour or so getting a feel for it. If you wrap your hand around the grip it feels small, there is not enough to fill your palm, but place your thumb or finger on the tang or gimping and the pistol grip crook of the handle to blade center line really works, I spent the next hour cutting a ton of heavy card board box's, the gimping can feel a bit biting over long use but you can move your thumb to the very tail of the tang which has the lighter gimping and let the skin cool off a bit, think I got a bit too much into it! but its nice and sharp out of the box and made that nice gliding sound when cutting! The tip is great for scoring, and the blade is thick enough for good strength but not so thick as to make it hard for push cuts, the edge holds up well and sharpens nicely too, The blade lock is I would say with this knife a must, the blade pivoting is very slick maybe a bit too slick! the bearings provide little stiction, the up side to this is it can be opened with a single hand. Over all a great knife, made in a way to last , with elements of QM's hyper-tech style but toned in a way to be more akin to every day use , the more time I spend using it the more I like it, truly worth having one.

    Great piece of kit!!

    Posted by Mr T on 8th Mar 2017

    Wanted a EDC knife, saw this on Heinnies site and was attracted by the different design, and quality of materials used. Ordered mine , I actually wanted a non engraved one but they were sold out, so went for the flag etched version anyway. It arrived early next morning, fantastic service as always from Heinnies!!
    Opened the box and was delighted with the knife. Fits in my hand nicely, opens smoothly with one hand, yes you can just feel it running over each bearing but still slick and easy. Tight enough not to fall open, and that's no bad thing as the blade was damn sharp straight out of the box as expected. The blade catch to stop it accidentally opening is a welcome feature, the blade out locking pin is usable, simple, effective, but by comparison to the rest of the knife, lacking in quality. Think another reviewer suggested getting a titanium one made up.( Maybe a option, but original is cheap and easy to replicate and replace with suitable size split pin! if lost !)
    Anyway , the knife, the extended tang makes opening the blade oh so easy,and makes it feel very secure in the open position, even without the pin being used. I was a little uncertain regarding the angled blade position, but having used it, it allows the wrist to stay in a straighter position (possibly stronger), and certainly for me a more comfortable and natural angle to use the knife so ergonomically I think Quartermaster and Heinnies have created a great tool, which feels and looks as if it's built to last .
    Great piece of kit.

    Turned out to be a great knife

    Posted by Alan on 27th May 2016

    I wasn't sure that I had made the right decision when I ordered this knife. I had been looking at it for a few days and in the end I bit the bullet and hit the purchase button.
    I am aware of Heinnies great service but when the postman knocked on the door the next morning with a package they had surpassed themselves on a great turn around time.
    On opening the package the knife was a bit smaller in the hand than I was expecting, but this was a good thing. One of my worries was that it may have looked a bit to tactical for my liking. The funny thing is if you look at it on one side it looks like a lot of other knives but when you turn it over to see the titanium side it is another knife altogether. It wasn't as sharp as I would have liked out of the box but after touching the edge up on the sharpmaker it's amazing what kind of an edge it will hold.. I've been using it for a few days now and the edge has held well, it's still razor sharp after cutting into quite a few boxes and doing a few other jobs around the house.
    The blade opens just right, not to easy and not to hard. The grip for some strange reason seems to work well as well. I don't notice the angle of the blade at all, well not yet anyway.
    I was only looking at it today and it struck me that the heaviest part of this knife is the blade and what a blade it is, for the price I can't fault it.
    So all in all you have one happy customer and despite my misgivings before I hit the buy button I am very glad that I did.
