Here is the 3.3" flipper we introduced to our lineup in november. We call it the skaha. It sports a CPM S35VN blade and G10 scales with our version of a "liner lock". Instead of a full liner, we insert a lockbar into the G10 handle. This cuts down significantly on weight but functions just like a traditional liner lock, and looks pretty sleek too. The only part of this knife we aren't making completely ourselves (besides small hardware), is the pocket clip.
We CNC mill the blades and scales. After milling, the blades go through many hand finishing steps before and after heat treat. You will notice we leave the milling lines on the bevels. Each step is only .001. We like the CNC finish for its unique look. It doesn't affect performance but it does reduce cost to both us and our customers. Below are specs and photos! For additional info, photos, or to purchase a knife visit the website or PM me!
Weve had trouble keeping up with demand on these but were finally getting into a rhythm with the production of this knife. We have a few in stock at the moment!
website price is $199 Canadian or approximately $152 USD after the conversion. Shipping will be added on top of this for all customers and Canadians will have to pay tax (varies depending on province).
If you are in the US and prefer sending a paypal payment instead of ordering from the website, the cost is $170 USD shipped CONUS. PM me to arrange specifics.
