Aaron Frederick Custom Smatchet Flipper Knife 3.95" CPM-154 Hand Rubbed Satin Blade, Blue Carbon Fiber Handles with Hammered Zirconium Bolsters
AFSMATCHETF: Custom Smatchet Folding Knife, Blue Carbon Fiber
Trash Panda Knives
This folding Smatchet from Aaron Frederick is a nice combination of robust roughness and tactical effectiveness. The handle shape reminds us a lot of a Kirby Lambert, made from blue carbon fiber with hammered zirconium bolsters. It's nicely contoured to feel excellent in the hand and definitely a unique look. The spear point blade, though, is what really gives this knife its character. It's completely symmetrical minus the thumb ramp, which gives it a very Roman Gladius-like appearance which we really like. The secondary bevel grind, thumb ramp, and flipper jimping are perfectly executed and the knife was constructed with Ti Connector custom hardware. While designed to be a tactical blade, the Smatchet is also a worth everyday carry if you can handle the larger size. It's a smooth flipper with rock-solid construction from a designer with a pedigree that cannot be denied.
