Description: Trevor Burger is a second-generation knifemaker following in the steps of his father, Fred Burger. He has an eye for detail. His knives have exceptionally smooth action and clean, no-nonsense designs. This rare left-handed custom Urban Flipper is a folder with a streamlined design that will make you really appreciate the details.
The blade runs on Trevor's in-house-made caged ceramic ball bearings and has silky-smooth action. Generally bearings are made either from tool steel or from stainless steel. Stainless steel can wear away, resulting in uneven action over time. Tool steel bearings can oxidize making the action rough. Ceramic bearings are the best of all worlds. Extremely hard and wear resistant, they are also inert and will not oxidize. The blade is easily opened single-handed using the gent's front flipper. This allows the blade to be flicked out quickly, or slowly rotated open with the thumb.
The blade is premium Bohler M390 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. M390 takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto 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 is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The handle is stonewashed grade 5 titanium with natural Micarta inlaid into the show side. The titanium is skeletonized to reduce weight to only 2.6 oz! A lanyard can be added using the lanyard hole included in the backbar. The 3D machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for left-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
