Description: Neill Schutte is a spectacular knifemaker.
He is perhaps best known for his Loveless style knives, and has been making flippers for the last few years. His flippers have reached a true world class level with some of the best fit and finish as well as action to be found anywhere. He has won a stunning set of awards including Best Fighter at the 2014 and 2015 Blade Shows in Atlanta, Best Hunting Knife at the 2014 and 2016 Knifemakers Guild Show of Southern Africa, Best Boot Knife at the 2013 Knifemakers Guild Show of Southern Africa, and Best Fancy Fixed Blade, Best Knife of Show, and Best Working Fixed Blade at the 2013 Bloemfontein Knifemakers Show.
This flipper features an M390 stainless steel blade. M390 is a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powdered 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. This flipper is built on washers instead of bearings. The action is smooth and consistent, though it is designed to have slightly more resistance than you would find on one of Schutte's bearing action flippers.
Carbon fiber scales are set on orange G-10 spacers, which in turn are set on anodized titanium liners. A raised copper pivot collar surrounds the custom pivot. A black G-10 backbar keeps the knife strong, yet extremely light. An anodized titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up, right handed carry.
Absolutely tremendous!
