Direct from the Maker at the USN G4 Gathering 2012
I was lucky enough to be Steve’s first Customer at the recent Vegas show and I was able hand pick the best pieces that he brought to the Gathering.
The first knife that caught my eye was this gorgeous Collision flipper ~ I have handled several of Steve’s Flipper and in my opinion the action and balance on this one is the best so far!
Steve has inlaid Lightening Strike Carbon Fiber into the thick Titanium front scale, this not only reduces the overall weight but also allows the the natural weight of the knife to rest in the rear scale which helps index the knife quickly into the right hand flipping position. Due to the unique design of the blade it blade flips open easily and smoothly, absolutely no wrist action is needed!
The lock engages perfectly ~ early and securely, one of the reasons I chose this particular knife.
The blade is made with Chad Nichols Blackout Stainless Damascus and has an inverted Thumb Ramp built into the spine of the blade. Also, Steve has added some precision Filework to the Reverse side of the Ti Frame.
Plenty of room in the handle for a full comfortable grip. Thick Low Rider Lightening Strike Carbon Fiber clip.
This tough Flipper will please even the most discrimating owner. I have only one available.
