The Appalachian Drifter II is the liner lock version of the popular Appalachian Drifter double detent slipjoint. All the dimensions are identical, the only visual difference being the bolsters found on this locking model. It transforms a beloved design into one able to tackle tougher tasks and more suited for the masses. We were big fans of the Appalachian Drifter and its classic Lanny's Clip appearance before but add in a liner lock and this knife is ready for any EDC task imaginable.

Excellent slicer, excellent grind, excellent action and overall a pleasant surprise. The finish on the Micarta isn't the best and the fit between the carbon and micarta is a bit dodgy. But 2 minutes with fine waterpaper sorted that out.
Much improved in every way from the Drifter 1. Great value.
Lets you think of the old days but is modern
great knife great slicer well made can't go wrong
