Description: Riaan Manser is a full-time knife maker from South Africa. He works under the brand name 3LegDog -- named for his pit bull cross dog which lost its hind leg when still a puppy. Manser and his dog spent many days and nights sitting along side each other in the knifemaking studio. Regretfully, his beloved dog passed away during the summer of 2018.
This Model H4 Flipper's blade is hand ground premium Bohler M390 stainless steel, with a Rockwell hardness of 62. M390 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. The blade is meticulously satin finished by hand.
The blade runs on caged ceramic bearings made by Derek Rausch. It is perfectly centered, has silky-smooth action, and is easily opened single-handed using the ambidextrous flipper tab. It drops shut with no resistance.
The handle is black G-10 with dyed and stabilized maple burl meticulously inlaid into each side. Bead blasted Gr6 titanium liners keep this full sized knife light yet strong. The backspacer is black G10. A raised pivot collar surrounds the pivot. The handle is completed with a bead blasted titanium pocket clip mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
