    Do you mean a flipper?

    Also, if you like the Baby Bat by Boker, but find it too small, how about the original Bat?

    You could always put 2 washes and a screw (like the pivot screws) on the spydie hole on the spyderco. You could also buy one of those quick stud things and put it on a spyderco.

    Yes, the index finger flipper. The Original Bat doesnt have the Flipper

    Not the same thing as the index finger flipper- I have partial nerve damage in my thumb which is why I am looking for index finger.

    If you can't find a hawkbill with a flipper, you can always try to learn the forefinger flip with any opening hole, same principle as flicking open a knife with your thumb or using a flipper (without wrist motion)

    Not quite a hawkbill, but more of a wharncliffe, is the Brous Silent Soldier flipper.

    There's also a couple from MTech and other generic companies, but I doubt the quality you want is there.

    Nice knife, but the price is a bit steep and its really not enough of a hawkbill for me. More of a slight curve. Think spyderco civilian

    Check out custom knifemaker J.E. Roorda. He has a small and large Raptor series. Thumb studs though.
