This Coffin Mini Front Flipper is an elegant, compact knife. The just over 2-1/2 inch blade is long enough to get most tasks done, yet allows the small, lightweight knife to fit in any pocket.
The blade is hand ground Björkmans Twist stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. This stainless damascus is created using powder metallurgical manufacturing to provide excellent edge retention and unmatched beauty. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Lavaflow FatCarbon handle scales meet perfectly with heat colored zirconium bolsters. Anodized titanium liners surround a carbon fiber backspacer. The anodized titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
