This Augustus Flipper features a blade made from 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. The blade can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper and it has smooth action thanks to the ceramic ball bearing pivot.
The handle features green Micarta and integral stonewash and black PVD coated bolsters. The liners surround a floating black PVD coated titanium backbar. The hardware has been anodized bronze while the pivot features a dual anodized finish. A bronze anodized titanium pivot collar surrounds the pivot. The black PVD coated titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
