Coty Handley recently retired from Active Duty with the United States in the Air Force. Coty has enjoyed a loyal following from folks who appreciate a true Hand Crafted Blade. He gained a reputation over the years by using his spare time while in the Air Force to craft excellent knives and sheaths at affordable prices. In 2011 Coty was assigned to a new, very challenging position and thus made fewer knives but now that he is Retired he is back at the Grinder. Coty’s Books are Closed and he does not accept Custom Orders and thus his knives are extremely hard to acquire.
I am proud that Coty Handley chose Fort Henry Custom Knives as his Exclusive Dealer and I look forward to bringing his knives directly to those that are seeking them.

~ Just Received – Direct from the Maker ~
This is one of Coty Handley’s First Flipper designs called the – Mission Critical
This Presentation version has Honeycomb CTeck scales and Beautiful Textured “Sunburst” Solid Copper bolsters. I think Coty has really outdone himself with both this design and this particular knife. Very nice Handle Design, Indexing is Fast due to the Deep Forward Finger Groove and this knife is a very Comfortable Handle Filling size.
The action is extremely smooth, the Detent and Flipping action are Spot On ~ Internal Bearings and a Hefty Blade make for a Very Fast Flipper.
This great looking Workhorse has a Crisp Grind on the Two Tone S30V blade, wonderful ergonomics and Secure Forward Finger placement area. The Thick Copper Bolsters have a Deep Texture which makes for a nice Contrast.
Also, the Custom Thumb Ridges on the Integral Thumb Ramp are especially well done.
The Lock has a touch of texture on the Interior Side to ensure disengagement. Superb early, tight Lock Up with a Smooth Release!
This knife has a Full Titanium Frame underneath the Scales, the Reverse side is Flat so that is rides snugly against the inside of your pocket.
Sporting a Thick, Extremely Low Riding Clip for Discreet Carry
You can trust me when I say that this Hand Made Knife will provide years of reliable service!
