The award-winning Augustus Flipper from legendary maker Kirby Lambert is an absolutely flawless design. The materials, craftsmanship plus the best fit & finish in the biz puts the Augustus on a whole other level. Winner Best Tactical Folder at Blade Show 2016!
The Blade: Kirby used a gorgeous horizontal running Damasteel for this aggressive MGT blade. This is a Multi Ground Tanto with a very tricky modified tip. Double hollow ground in the center with a wicked upper harpoon-styled swedge. It features an integral flipper tab for deployment with light notching. Smoothly and effortlessly it rides on a ball bearings pivot system. Detent is spot on and the lockup is solid. Well-centered blade seating as you would expect with Kirby's spider logo on the front flat.
The Handle: Kirby's midnight blue titanium liners are the foundation of the Augustus. They're beefy, but not over the top with one providing the smooth operating liner lockup. Smooth, smoky Marbled Carbon Fiber scales meet up with ever so lightly textured Zirconium bolsters. Everything is secured using Titanium hardware. To finish it off, Kirby sculpted a tip up carry zirconium pocket clip for carry.
This new Augustus Flipper is brand new direct from maker Kirby Lambert. It comes in a Lambert zipper pouch signed by the maker with spider guitar pick inside.
