Does anyone know if Hinderer has any plans for more non flippers?

    Anyone know if there is going to be anymore non flippers... say in 3", or bowie, or spanto or a sterile blade? I know they just made some 3.5" slicers after many years, and was hoping to see if I should hold out for another configuration like a spanto. Thanks!

    They can easily be "de-flipperized" :)

    Now you've given me ideas.

    I know what I'll be looking at for the rest of the day :)

    I thought their various knives came in either flipper or non-flipper types? The ones I've seen look the same, they're just detent-optimized differently. (?)

    I just googled for them and immediately found non-flipper models in stock--is there some model in specific you can't find?

    No idea where to get it done. I'm not sure if it's cost effective either.

    Umm , maybe the guy who's post you quoted can do it. Take a look at who it is. Just a thought ;)

    Pretty sure razers edge is saying he can do it for you. I've seen his work before and it looks great. Not sure what he charges to de-flipperize a hinderer but I'd imagine it's only 20-50 bucks.

    They are at least back on RHK's mind again. No inside info, but I wouldn't be shocked if some other varieties showed up at Blade.

    I advise the op to buy a Delica and put it through the ringer. Then say you still feel the need for a spanto. [emoji3]

    I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for another non flipper. Based on what they've shown for new stuff coming up this year (slip joint and maximus), I don't know how much time they will have to do another in the near future.
