QAQTR3: QTR-3 Templeton "Face" Peck
QTRM5TR Knives
A mid-sized tanto with a gunner’s style grip. The knife blade rotates shy of 180 degrees, allowing for a more pistol grip-like feel. A finger guard moonlights as a flipper device when the knife is closed and the use of the ORB® pivot system and tri-spoke pivot assembly make this knife nearly effortless to open.

The large jimping on the blade spine act as a thumb rest and where the blade meets the frame, the jimps are continued and widened to increase confidence in your grip during heavy use. The rear of the handle is slightly elongated to allow the knife to extend slightly past your palm help with stability.

We’ve added ambidextrous thumb-studs which have been individually machined for extra traction. You’ll find two thumb studs on each side of this knife. This is symbolic of its length and adds a touch of character where needed.

About the ORB® Pivot System:

The ORB® Pivot System is a sealed ball-bearing technology that is widely considered the second generation of an open-bearing system that is being used by some manufacturers today.

The ORB’s advantages are plenty: dirt and pocket lint cannot impede the track of these rollers, they’re encased. The ball-bearing system tightens the tolerances in and around the pivot of the folding knife, as a result the lock-up is vault tight, yet the rollers allow for almost effortless rotation.

The lack of ‘play’ at any point on the rotational axis of the blade is truly unlike anything currently being made at this price point in the United States.

Big knife in small package: Doesn't meet expectations.
The quality of the knife is unmistakably great, the steel is excellent, it's built extremely well. The problem with this knife is the length to width ratio. The blade feels way to small compared to the actual feel of the knife itself. and i'm not sure if it's the ORB system, but overtime, the blade did become a little wobbly. The knife has held it's ground though, the company has potential. It's definitely worth the extra $100 for the Hannibal. PROS: Overall excellent quality Built nicely, damn near indestructible The industrial design to it looks and feels great. CONS: The bulkiness of the knife and the length inhibits the user's abilities with the knife The blade wobbles after constant use (but can be tightened, of course.)

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Weight
Quality build and bold looks hooked me
This American knife company (QTRM5TR) was just created last year and I had seen very little info on their products. I heard that the guy that started the company had worked for Mantis Knives, and I have a few of their models. I always thought Mantis had cool designs. The Mantis Pitt Boss seems to be a forerunner of the QTRM5TR designs. I bought the Face Peck as it seemed to be a good mid size knife for me. Although I like the knife, I ended up selling it to a friend. I found it was just too darn thick and heavy for that small of a knife that I was trying to use as an EDC. No complaints with the quality, but size/weight make it not acceptable for me.
