A slick new flipper known as the Model 13 EDC this way comes from the mind of maker Les Voorhies and built with pride in Germany by Boker Knives. Some very desirable components in the Model 13 and just a joy to flip.
The Blade: Premium CPM-154 steel was chosen for this model and given a heavy stonewashed finish. It's razor sharp and opens via an integral flipper tab that protrudes out the back of the handle. A nice and easy pull of the lever whips the blade right out in the ready-to-use position with a solid "thwack". This smooth action is thanks to a uniform ball bearings pivot system. Once open, the flipper tab creates an integral guard protecting your fingers during cutting tasks.
The Handle: Brush satin finished titanium liners and backspacer create the solid construction. Green canvas micarta handle slabs are actually cut smaller than the liners to reveal their look and accenting holes near the end of the handle. Titanium Torx hardware and pivot are a nice touch on the Model 13. Boker nailed the ergonomics and overall "feel" of a Voorhies custom knife with this one.
Each flipper comes in a Boker Germany box with microfiber baggie inside and is individually numbered on the back of the blade. Includes a tip up removable pocket clip for carry.
