This K-4 Flipper features a blade made from satin finished M390 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powder metallurgical process also promotes a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties, making M390 a popular steel used in surgical cutting instruments and in applications requiring a high finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance due to its high concentration of chromium. The blade can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper and it has smooth action thanks to the bearing system pivot. The compound grind features a recurve edge and a piercing tanto tip.
The machined titanium handle has a sturdy frame lock and a bead blasted finish. Stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden is flawlessly inlaid into the show side of the titanium scales. The ergonomic handle is chamfered to provide a very comfortable grip even during extended use. The pivot collar is made from Damasteel as well. The inside of the scales are skeletonized to reduce overall weight. The titanium backspacer is notched to complete the handle. A layard can be added if some extra grip is needed. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
