Lansky Sharpeners, the world leader in innovative sharpening technology has partnered with world-renowned custom knifemaker Mikkel Willumsen to produce a new line of Urban Tactical Folding knives.

Mikkel Willumsen has gained attention worldwide for his innovative and gritty tactical designs which he calls Urban Tactical. Based in a repurposed factory in Copenhagen, Denmark, Mikkel has been designing and producing custom-made knives for over 10 years. Specializing in high-quality custom folders, fixed blades and balisongs, Mikkel’s designs are influenced by classical knives combined with his modern spin on tactical. By bringing his talents and experience to Lansky customers can expect the high-quality functionality and modern aesthetics that define his work, combined with Lansky Sharpeners unwavering dedication to quality.

“We are ecstatic to be working with Mikkel,” said Lansky Sharpeners CEO Chris Fire. “Mikkel’s designs are not only unique, but also redefine the acceptable uses of simple folding knives. By partnering together, we’ll be able to open up a larger community of knife aficionados to Mikkel’s designs without them having to spend top dollar for one of his handmade custom knives.”

The partnership between Lansky and Willumsen resulted in producing three knives for 2014. The Responder X9 features a 12C27 Sandvik® steel blade with G10 handles and full stainless steel liner lock and hardware. Made with rugged military use in mind, the Responder X9 was designed to perform in the harshest conditions and then come back for more. The World Legal was designed specifically to meet most international knife-carrying laws and standards. Featuring a ballistic glass-filled nylon handle, four-way ambidextrous pocket clip carry and a 440C stainless blade, this well-balanced blade packs a lot of features for its small size. The Responder is an affordable, compact, EDC (Every Day Carry) version of the Responder X9. Packed with smart, convenient features such as ballistic glass-filled nylon handles, ambidextrous pocket clip carry, quick action deployment and a 440C stainless blade, this knife is a unique and useful everyday carry companion.
