Jason's Mini Persian Flipper is a compact folder perfect for everyday carry yet it would feel comfortable in any collection. The blade is made from Chad Nichols' Armored Core San Mai Damascus. The core steel has been brought to a mirror polish to emphasize the dramatic san mai transition. A swedge travels along the upswept spine. A choil allows you to choke up for more detailed cutting tasks. The blade is easy to deploy using the ambidextrous flipper tab. The flipper opening is tremendously easy to use for quick deployment. When combined with the IKBS ball bearing system, the action is exceptional! The Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) was originally designed to fit balisong knives and uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
Marbled carbon fiber scales are set on stonewashed titanium liners. The linerlock provides a consistent lockup yet is easy to disengage. The bolsters are made from Chad Nichols' Cu-Zr. This new material is made from alternating layers of forged copper and zirconium. The high contrast results make this material absolutely stunning! The backbar is made from matching Armored Core San Mai. The blackened titanium pocket clip is mounted for right handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
