Jason's Hedge Flipper is a compact folder perfect for everyday carry yet it would feel comfortable in any collection. The blade is made from high performing stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The Hakkapella pattern is high contrast and immediately captivating. A swedge travels along the spine. A choil allows you to choke up for more detailed cutting tasks. The blade is easy to deploy using the ambidextrous flipper tab. The flipper opening is tremendously easy to use for quick deployment. When combined with the IKBS ball bearing system, the action is exceptional! The Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) was originally designed to fit balisong knives and uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
A carbon fiber scale is set on a stonewashed titanium frame. A sturdy framelock provides a consistantly strong lockup. The bolsters are made from Chad Nichols' Cu-Zr. This new material is made from alternating layers of forged copper and zirconium. The high contrast results makes this material absolutely stunning! The backbar and pivot ring are made from Damasteel. The blackened titanium pocket clip is mounted for right handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
