"The late Harvey McBurnette is considered to be one of the legendary knife makers. His knives are hard to find and valuable. Harvey McBurnette, Dick Dorough and WT Fuller all worked together at Goodyear Tire and Rubber in Gadsden, AL. WT lost one of his hands in a treadmill accident and was retired from work. They were all friends and machinists, WT needed a front locking knife so he could open and close one handed. The three makers worked together and developed a front locking folder.
