My First Custom Flipper

Are you tired of knives that have thin, slicing blades?  Do you yearn for an impractical monstrosity to drop in your pocket and occasionally pants you when you forget to wear a belt?  Do you want something that, in an emergency, such a traffic jam, can help you with that nic-fixing energy?  Is your knife primarily a yo-yo--a toy based on a simple principle of physics--and not a tool?  If so, do I have a flipper for you.  It is UNBELIEVABLY smooth, flips so easily it is practically telepathic, and it has an edge thicker than your smartphone.

Here you go:

  3. Grippy scales, thick stock and space age materials? Sign me up Tony! If possible can you offer a deep carry option?

  4. The blade and the flipping action are pretty good but the rest of the knife is a disaster. For a custom like this you should have at least used cocobolo LEGO bricks for the scales, and the interior of the frame and the standoff could use some gold leaf.
    This made my day.

    1. Nonsense, sir, that's a flawless 90 degree grind if I've ever seen one:)

    2. but where's the compound recurve tanto?? 90 degree grinds may (-or may not-) cut well, but they're so damn bland!
