This is a brand new direct from maker Alan Folts custom Carved Dragon Bolo Flipper and it is hot! It's titanium handle is painstakingly carved by hand and anodized by the man himself.
The Blade: Beautifully hand-rubbed satin finished bolo-styled recurve slicer on this one. Right about 4 inches of cutting edge with upper swedge harpoony-styled grind on the top tip of the blade. A smooth ramp and upper scoop spine offer plenty of thumb real estate while gripping the knife. The FOLTS emblem appears on the front and includes an integral flipper tab opener. This makes for easy opening plus a finger guard when cutting to protect those digits. This blade glides on a ball bearings pivot system for effortless opening.
The Handle: Two thick slabs of titanium have been sculpted and contoured for a smooth, comfortable grip. Each slab has been Blue anodized, brush satin finished and carved by hand. The front displaying a Dragon motif with the lock side sporting a partial Samurai profile. A frame lock mechanism creates the solid lockup while a titanium backspacer brings it all together. Titanium hardware used for this piece as well.
This Carved Bolo Flipper from Alan is a true work of art. His ability to bring art to life on his knives is second to none. When art and functionality come together, you have an Alan Folts custom knife. This one comes in a black cloth pouch.
