Description: Jason Clark is a part time, sole authorship knifemaker from O'Brien, Florida. Jason has been employed full time as a Florida Law Enforcement Officer since 1997 and knows what it takes to make a high functioning knife that is meant to be used. He even offers lifetime free sharpening for any knife he has made!
Jason Clark's Zulu front flipper is the perfect compact gentleman's everyday carry. The blade is perfectly centered with smooth, consistent action. It uses an IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play. The inobtrusive front flipper tab is easy to use and won't get caught on things in your pocket.
The 2.9 inch blade is formed from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. This high performing stainless damascus steel is created using powder metallurgical manufacturing to provide excellent edge retention and unmatched beauty. Jason's maker mark is shown on the left side of the blade. The IKBS mark is on the right side.
Handle scales are formed from natural linen Micarta dovetailed to black paper Micarta bolsters. Titanium liners surround a free floating Damasteel backbar. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
