Description: The Glimpse is a hallmark of Todd Begg's work. This frame lock flipper features a .150" thick Bohler N690 stainless steel, hand ground blade. It features a boot grind. 6AL4V Titanium scales have been Ti Nitride coated and tumbled. The Titanium back spacer features a partially raised section of jimping for reverse grip control.
N690 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
The blade is perfectly centered and silky smooth -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. The Glimpse 5.5 is equipped with ceramic IKBS which will eliminate the possibility of corrosion of the bearings and increase the smoothness of the flipping action. IKBS was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The Glimpse 5.5 features the Begg-designed replaceable titanium lock bar with built-in over bend and ceramic detent compression protection.
The jewel iced titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
