This custom Tanto Flipper from by Jason Clark offers a handcrafted build that is lightweight, pocket-friendly, and has phenomenally smooth action!
The satin finished tanto blade is formed from high performing RWL-34 stainless steel. RWL 34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is manufactured from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and resistance to cracking. It features a precise hollow grind with a swedge. The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
Black carbon fiber scales have been nicely domed for a comfortable grip. A minimal stainless steel backspacer keeps the knife strong, yet extremely light. The pocket low profile clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
