Brand New from maker Jonathan Mcnees custom Skybolt Flipper featuring a two-tone sculpted Titanium frame lock handle and M3 Mokume accents. The Skybolt is a large folder that is well-balanced and lightweight for its size. It flips like a dream and has strong, early lockup.
The Blade: Four inches of hollow ground CPM-154 stainless super edge retaining steel here formed to a modified spear point style. As with Jon's knives, it is quite sharp right out of the pouch. A dark matte grey bead-blasted/tumbled finish with slight upper swedge grind. There is a large scoop cutout on the spine that will fit your entire thumb. Perfect for choking up during detailed cutting tasks. There is also an inverted, short thumb ramp with light jimping. This beast deploys via a notched, integral flipper tab exposed from the back of the handle. It rides on an internal bearing system with just exceptional detent for silky smooth action.
The Handle: Two ergonomic slabs of titanium with custom sculpted texturing on the front slab and lockbar. The bottom textured portion of the front slab is lightly dark blue anodized. Four hole cutouts help lighten the load. The titanium is accented with a very cool M3 Mokume backspacer and pivot collar. M3 (Macro-Molecular Materials) is a blend of the purest copper and brightest white aluminum for a version reminiscent of ancient Japanese metal art. The copper will patina over time for a unique look. At the center of the collar is a textured titanium pivot head.
The Skybolt Flipper includes a tip-up carry titanium pocket clip, signed specs card and business card from the maker with Mcnees Velcro pouch. Lots of Custom features in this one for a true one-of-a-kind piece.
