Custom knife maker Greg Lightfoot's work can be summed up with one word...Badass! Overbuilt, beefy, tank, aggressive are just a few others that come to mind when feasting your eyes on this brand new Full Contact Fighter flipper. Fit 'n finish and action on this piece are spot on. Thick, premium materials all wrapped up in one killer package.
The Blade: It checks in at nearly four inches long, 0.17 inches thick and has one of the coolest tanto's you will ever see. It's hollow ground with a full satin finish and Greg's super subsonic upper swedge grind on the front. The integral flipper is the method of deployment thwacking the blade out in a flash as it rides on bearings. Detent is right-on medium strength for that kind of action you won't want to put down. This tanto is mean, sharp and ready to party.
The Handle: Two 0.125 inch thick slabs of blue anodized titanium create the liners with the front left exposed with machined cutouts for a pro look. The other liner forms the lockbar with hardened steel insert on the face for easy and consistent lockup. Carbon fiber scales are attached using Steven Kelly bronze titanium hardware. The pivot screw is especially nice accented with a blue Ti pivot collar. Ergo's are off the charts with finger grooves to boot.
Final touches on this custom are bronze titanium standoffs and a tip up carry blue titanium pocket clip. Tip to tail on the Full Contact Fighter is precision overbuilt. Excellent blade seating right down Broadway with early, solid lockup. It comes in a pitbull patched zipper pouch with attached torched steel bullet bead lanyard.
