I'm glad that this forum was added. I don't have many knives, but I have a lot of questions!

I posted a photo of this knife a few weeks ago over on the Revolver forum, but know very little about it. It is a Colt brand folding knife that opens in a strange manner. Who made this knife for Colt? This is a medium-sized folding knife, and did it come in any smaller sizes? Other than the Colt stamps, it is unmarked. The handle material is electrical micarta.



Here is a photo of it partially open to show the mechanism:



Again, any information at all is appreciated!

The only one I've seen function like that was made by Puma, but never that large.

Thank you for the information Pinduck!

I just googled Barry Wood knives, and you are correct. That is a knife of his design. I wonder why his name is not on it anywhere? He called that strange manner of opening his "Tuckaway" action!
