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 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 has chosen 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 a New Tactical Model that Coty Handley recently introduced called the Gila Flipper  

This Coty Handley Gila Flipper has Mellow Brown Stabilized Oosik scales with Hammered Copper “Solar Flare” Bolsters.  The action is extremely smooth, the Detent and Flipping action are Spot On ~ Internal Bearings and a Hefty Blade make this a Very Fast Flipper

This Tough Workhorse has a Crisp High Hollow Grind on the Mike Norris Stainless Damascus blade, wonderful ergonomics and Secure Forward Finger placement area. The Thick Copper Bolsters provide a wonderful contrast against the Oosik Scales. The beautiful Solar Flare pattern was hand Hammered into the Copper. 

The Custom Thumb Ridges are and handle Ergonomics are especially well done.

The Lock has Hand Applied Texture Ridges on the face to ensure disengagement.  Superb early, tight Lock Up!  

The knife has a Full Titanium Frame underneath the Scales and a Custom Titanium Backspacer.

Sporting an Extreme Low Rider Titanium Clip. 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 Grooves and this knife is a very Comfortable Handle Filling size.  

You can trust me when I say that this Hand Made Knife will provide years of reliable service!
