The Custom Brad Zinker Swayback Wharncliffe FLF takes his iconic ultralight frame lock construction and delivers it in an ultra-slim, ultralight front flipper. Built with precision hand fit and finish, the classic Swayback pattern is executed with modern style. This version comes with a dark stonewashed CPM-154 blade and matching titanium handle slabs with hole milling.

Brand new, direct from Brad Zinker, USA.

Blade: The straight edge of the Wharncliffe profile is delivered in an aggressive compound hollow grind with a shallow grind at the tip for enhanced durability in piercing and a deeper hollow section for powerful slicing. The grind and blade profile deliver a dramatic look while being highly functional for a variety of tasks. Deployment is fast and smooth via the jimped flipper tab thanks to a ball bearing pivot and allows for ambidextrous one hand operation. CPM-154 stainless steel delivers balanced performance. Discreetly non-reflective, the blasted and tumbled dark stonewashed finish hides wear from use.

Handle: The sleek Swayback handle has over 3.5 inches of grip area to accommodate most users with heavily chamfered edges on the titanium handle slabs for comfort. The tapered pommel pairs with high traction hole milling for a secure grip in any position. A single barrel spacer joins the slabs in a lightweight open construction with further weight reduction from the milled holes. This handle is lightweight and fast in the hand while still offering a secure grip. A subtle cutout on the front allows access to the jimped titanium frame lock that delivers smooth operation, secure lockup and safe use. Includes padded zipper pouch for storage.

Carries via a right hand, tip-up, hole milled, stonewashed titanium deep carry clip.

CPM-154: A particle metallurgy (PM) version of Crucible 154CM that benefits from the refinement in the PM process. A great all-around blade steel, CPM-154 has D2 level edge retention, AEB-L level corrosion resistance and comparable toughness to other PM stainless steels with ease of sharpening/finishing.
