This Custom Wayfarer Compact Flipper is a fantastic EDC folder. The 3-1/2 inch clip point blade is made from CTS-XHP stainless steel. This US-made steel is a new air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy. At Hrc 62-64, it will have exceptional edge holding! The blade features a dark stonewash finish in the grinds and a satin finish in the flats showing off the crisp, clean grinds.
The blade is well centered and has smooth action. The flipper opening is tremendously easy to use for quick deployment thanks to the caged ball bearing system.
The handle combines ancient bog oak wood scales with a copper bolster. This wood has been buried in a Nordic peat bog for hundreds or sometimes thousands of years. The extremely low oxygen conditions of the bog protect the wood from normal decay, while the underlying peat provides acidic conditions where iron salts and other minerals react with the tannins in the wood, gradually giving it a distinct dark brown to almost black color. The dark wood shows off subtle striations. The copper bolster has been hammer finish and has a beautiful patina. Titanium liners are fileworked and surround a hammer finished copper backbar. The titanium clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry. The inside of the knife is marked WC282.
Excellent work throughout!
