The Rogovets Custom Model 13 Flipper with titanium handle and CTS-XHP blade is a truly handmade custom knife as 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. The SR Metal Works Model 13 is a mid-large piece measuring in overall at just over 8 1/2 inches offering clean lines and exceptional function.
Built of two thick slabs of titanium, both the front and back of the handle have been accented with milled geometric lines for a contemporary look and chamfered on the edges providing in hand comfort. The flats of the handle have been satin finished while the recesses and edges are acid washed offering contrast. A lock bar has been cut out of the lower frame and has an attached D2 steel lock face and a ceramic detent ball. The CTS-XHP Persian inspired blade with harpoon swedge is two-tone finished complimenting the handle and features an integral flipper and brass tube insert. Riding on caged ball bearings, the blade can be effortlessly deployed using the flipper - no wrist action required on this one. A carved titanium pocket clip, custom titanium standoffs, titanium hardware and engine turned pivot complete this piece.
Inscribed on the inside of the frame with Sergey's signature, date, blade steel and serial number 1559. Includes a signed certificate with warranty information and Pelican 1120 waterproof case for storage in style. Brand new direct from maker Sergey Rogovets.
