Description: This Todd Begg Mini Glimpse holds up the reputation for excellence that Todd has established. Even before Todd's fame established by Blade Brothers, Todd's work was well renowned.
The modified wharncliffe blade is formed from Doug Ponzio's stainless damascus steel, in a charming pattern of swirls and loops. A hollow grind ensures an easy to sharpen, long lasting edge.
This Custom Glimpse features an anodized, all-titanium liners with very rare Lightning Strike carbon fiber inlaid into mirror polished titanium scales. Copper strands move through the woven carbon fiber. This type of carbon fiber was originally designed for use on fighter jets to redirect electricity. Lightening strike carbon fiber is among the hardest to find knifemaking materials. The color and pattern of the carbon fiber compliments the damascus well. The liners are jewel polished on the interior. The edges of the liners, along with the back spacer and pocket clip feature Todd's Cracked Ice finish.
Todd incorporated IKBS bearings for a perfect, silky smooth deployment of the flipper. The IKBS pivot was originally designed for balisong knives, and uses ball bearings for a smooth, dependable, solid action. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action.
The titanium pocket clip makes it easy to keep the knife close at hand and is set for tip-up carry. Exceptional work throughout!
