The Begg Knives Glimpse 5.5 Flipper Blue Diamond Titanium is a hand-assembled semi-custom piece with many of the same features as Begg's custom knives. A fluted, pierced and satin finished Bohler N690 spear point blade provides for quick and easy opening with a gentle push of the integral flipper. Riding on ceramic ball bearings encircled in cold forged bearing races, the upgraded IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System), allows for silky smooth opening action with each and every flip. Once opened, the blade is held in place by a patent pending removable bolt on 6AL4V titanium inter-frame handle/frame-lock. The frame lock has been machined to extend slightly within the handle providing for built-in over-travel and ceramic detent compression protection while it's also easy to remove for cleaning. Blue anodized titanium with diamond texture and gold border accent lines forms the front and backside of the handle as well as the bolt on frame lock. The attention to detail on this piece is evident from the jeweled ice blade spine and flipper ramp to the upgraded two-toned blue/gold anodized and jeweled ice titanium backspacer and gold anodized jeweled ice pocket clip. Brand new directly from Begg Knives.
