QSP SMALL BATCH BEAUTY
From hot sauce to beer to pocket knives, the finest formulations are often made in small batches. Attention to detail, controlled components, and master craftsmanship are vital to turn an idea into a finished product. Pocket knives of this caliber are often made only by custom builders at price points that will make even the boomers blush. Enter the creatives at QSP, who have churned out yet another unique knife design, produced in small batch sizes - The Otter. Using a combination of house made materials, premium steel, and fan favorite specs, the Otter is a featherweight, flicky EDC offered in an array of eye catching options. Available now, these small batch produced beauties won’t last.
IN HOUSE CF
The Otter is a real pocket phantom – this thing weighs under 3 ounces thanks in large part to the helium-esque silver or copper infused carbon fiber scales. Made in house by QSP, this spin on common carbon fiber gives the Otter a dressed up, modern, and spaced out appearance. Each handle pattern is completely unique – a byproduct of the artistic approach by QSP.
HANDSOME AND HANDY
Good looks and dull specs make Jack a dull boy – but this is the Otter - and he’s ready for work and play. Outfitted with a S35VN blade at 58-60 HRC, the blades on the Otter are razor sharp and are sure to stay that way. S35VN is commonly referred to as the goldilocks of blade steels by balancing hardness, maintenance, and edge retention into one formidable package. The Otter blade is deployed with ease via the subtle flipper tab and catches a ride on ceramic ball bearings to snap into open position.
The Otter checks all the boxes for EDC – sub 3” blade, extremely lightweight, trend-setting aesthetic, and a fine blade to boot. Premium steel in the pocket is a confidence booster, a knife you can rely on for a wide range of cutting tasks. QSP is once again punching well above their weight class with the Otter. From design to materials to craftsmanship to quality control, they’ve nailed another one.
