CGKBBTANTO: Custom Big Bowie/Tanto Flipper
Chuck Gedraitis Custom Knives
The Big Bowie/Tanto Flipper by Chuck Gedraitis is a fantastic looking tactical folder that you will want to carry with you each and every day. The blade rides on regular Teflon washers but some way, somehow, Chuck has achieved amazing smooth and positive operation using the jimped flipper tab. The blade is made from CPM-154 stainless steel with a multi-bevel grind and two-tone finish with brushed satin flats and tumbled/acid etched bevels. The clip point blade that is typical of a Bowie knife has tons of belly for utility tasks and it has a devastatingly sharp tip. Chuck wanted to keep the swedge from the Bowie design but make it more into a tactical folder, thus the Big Bowie/Tanto was born. The handle feels rock solid while the superb ergonomics make it comfortable to hold and to use. The handle scales are carbon fiber/silver twill with orange peel titanium bolsters, attached with hidden Torx screws for a cleaner look, over full titanium liners. The pocket clip is milled timascus and the three-quarter length backspacer is polished black Micarta to complete the excellent overall look of this design. It is a gorgeous knife that is probably unlike anything else you have in your collection, made by a true artist in the industry.
