ArtisanCutlery Dirk Pinkerton Proponent Flipper Knife 3.85" S35VN Two-Tone Wharncliffe Blade, Green Anodized Titanium Handles - 1820G-GNS
ACU1820GGNS: Artisan Cutlery Proponent Flipper Knife, Green
A beefy knife with a deft touch, the Proponent from Artisan Cutlery is one monster of a flipper. The heavy Wharncliffe blade measures in at 3.85" and is made from a 0.18" thick stock of high-quality S35VN stainless steel. This gives it a lot of power and weight behind each cut, while the narrow tip provides good penetrative potential. The blade sports an attractive two-tone finish with the majority being satin and the fuller being sand polished. The large handles provide a solid grip due to its large finger groove and milled recesses. Handles this large would normally make the knife unwieldy, but being made of lightweight titanium gives just enough reduction of weight to make it user-friendly. The Proponent comes with a threaded pin that can be inserted into the hole near the finger groove to bolt the blade open or closed, providing stability and safety to this monster. The deploying action is extremely smooth thanks to the ceramic ball bearings in the pivot, especially for a knife of this weight and size. The Proponent is an agile touch in a large package.

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
