The Sergey Rogovets Model XR3 Custom Flipper is a precision crafted beast boasting a 10 inch overall length and 3/4 pounds in weight. Not for the faint of heart, this folding knife is not only large in size, but also in personality bearing an artistically airbrushed USA flag. A truly handmade custom knife, Sergey makes each piece without the use of a CNC or waterjet machine. All of the work on this piece is done in his shop by him by hand, from the heat treating of the blade to the manufacturing of parts. Brand new directly from Sergey Rogovets. Limited to only 3 pieces made.
The Blade: Stainless Chad Nichols Raindrop Damascus forms the oversized modified wharncliffe blade with deep sweeping lines and integral flipper. Acid etching shows the character of the damascus crisply while a brass tube has been expertly inserted near the thumb ramp. Caged ball bearings surround the blade at the pivot and combine with a medium detent for a smooth ride with a push on the extended flipper.
The Handle: Thick titanium slabs have been patriotically airbrushed Cerakote with the stars and stripes of the American Flag. They come together via a floating copper backspacer, slightly patinaed, and satin titanium hardware. A framelock mechanism is built-in to the back scale offering reliable lock-up with D2 hardened steel lockbar insert for smooth disengagement. Matching airbrushed titanium clip attached for tip-up right hand carry.
Hand engraved as 1/3 and serial number, SR 1576, on inside of back handle slab. Inside of copper spacer has been hand signed Sergey Rogovets and 1 of 3.
The Packaging: Includes a signed certificate with warranty information and Pelican 1120 waterproof case for storage in style.
