    Due to a hand injury I struggle a bit to use thumb opening knives so wanted an easy opening flipper that would not cost too much. I bought one of these some time ago, directly from South Africa and have EDC'd it for a number of months. Now that I see that they are available in the USA I did a quick video review. The review talks mainly about the features. From an ownership point of view it has stood up to all that I have thrown at it. I liked the large black one in the review so much that I recently bought the medium tan one that you will also see in the video.

    Your review made me decide to pick up a Honey Badger Flipper in medium. For the most part its an impressive knife for the price. I'll take a dremel to the sharp edge that can bite your finger in the forward choil but beyond that it's good to go and a solid option for someone with $20-30 to spend on a knife.

    Enjoy. I have not found the choil sharp edge a problem but do see what you mean. I recently got into free hand sharpening instead of using my sharpmaker for a change. I got the blade shaving sharp and so far the edge is holding up nicely. I did this fun photo yesterday along side my Zebralight to have a Zebra and a Honey Badger together!!

    They just came out with a green model so added one to the collection. Large black, medium green and small tan.

    And then there were 5! Just took delivery of these 2 new blade shapes to add to my existing 3 Honey Badger Flippers.

    They are made in China. I took mine apart to check on the quality of workmanship. Pretty good even down to the bearings in the pivot.
