Description: This exceptional flipper was handmade by Jurgen Schanz of Stutensee, Germany. I was very excited when Andre Thorburn introduced me to his friend Jurgen at the 2018 East Coast Custom Knife Show. Seeing Thorburn's respect for Schanz' skills, immediately drew my attention.
At 18, Schanz began his apprenticeship in Esslingen and in 1992 he received the German National Tradesman Prize. Three years later, he qualified as a master smith with merit. In 1995, he was admitted as one of just over 100 members to the German Knife Makers' Guild, where is now vice president.
The blade is formed from German Niolox stainless steel. Niolox contains niobium, one of the best carbide formers. It has very fine crystalline grain structure. At 61-62 Hrc, this knife will have exceptional edge holding. The blade has smooth, consistent action and is effortlessly opened using the flipper tab.
The titanium frame is lightly textured and anodized to a bronze hue. A titanium barrel spacer keeps the knife rigid, yet strong. A titanium damascus pivot collar adds nice contrast. An anodized, textured titanium pocket clip makes it easy to keep this flipper close at hand.
Exceptional work throughout!
