Geoff Blauvelt from Tuffknives in the USA has executed a truly unusual concept with his War Toad. As is typical for tactical friction folders, this rendition has a free-floating blade withoutlock. The blade tang is used to secure the blade with the clenching hand, but is also ground to a chisel shape for use as a scraper or lever. The grip consists of G-10 (front scale) and titanium (back scale and spacer) and provides a rock-solid feel. The hollow chisel grind gives the blade strength and effectiveness. The knife is not designed to be carried clipped to the pocket. The clip is strictly used for carrying, e.g. on equipment. 440C blade steel.
