The Flare is Jesse's most recent creation, designed to be a brute utility flipper with an ultra-thin pocket profile. The blade is formed from ultra-high performance AEB-L stainless steel. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. AEB-L was developed for razor blades with a very fine grain structure making it easy to sharpen while maintaining good edge holding capabilities. The high flat grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry. The blade is easily opened with ambidextrous flipper tab. Filework along the spine provides secure thumb purchase. Perfectly centered blade with smooth action.
The titanium frame is anodized bronze and features a red TPT (Thin Ply Technology) Carboquartz front scale. This unique material was developed for Richard Mille watch cases. 45 micron thin layers of carbon are combined with 4 micron quartz-fiber filament. This composite combines strength with beauty and lightness. It is so revolutionary that it immediately won the JEC World 2016 Innovation Award. The straight forward shape provides a sure, comfortable grip in a wide range of holds. The G-10 backspacer provides a convenient place to tie a lanyard. A large pivot is used for strength and durability. The titanium pocket clip features Jesse's logo and is mounted for right handed, tip-up carry. The slim profile and light weight on this flipper make it very easy to carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
