Custom Knife Factory Tashi Bharucha Muscle Flipper 3.9" M390 Stonewashed Blade, Milled Titanium Handles
CKFMUSCLESW: Tashi Bharucha Muscle Flipper, Stonewashed
Custom Knife Factory
Custom Knife Factory might sound like an ambiguous name but it's definitely one worth remembering. Their knives are mid-tech by definition but the quality definitely borders on full custom. They have a CNC machine shop in China that does a lot of the leg work but all the hand fit and finishing are done in house in their Moscow shop. They use top of the line materials made in the USA and designs from some of the most talented knife designers in Russia.
The Muscle is the much-anticipated collaboration with Tashi Bharucha that's as large as it is beautiful. In typical Tashi-style this pairs a wide blade with an ergonomic, slender handle for a knife that combines both great looks and tactical functionality. It has superior, lightning fast flipping action, excellent fit and finish, and a cool look you don't come across every day. It's a large yet extremely appealing design that carries very well and everything about it screams use me!
The 3.9" flat ground drop point blade is made from M390 stainless steel with a stonewashed finish. The handle is made from titanium with milling to improve both aesthetics and grip. The pocket clip, in addition to the overall look, is what we really like about this design. It's a milled titanium clip that functions like a spring clip being very easy to get this knife in and out of the pocket, so it's the best of both worlds. The Muscle features a two-row ceramic bearing pivot system, compact yet very functional flipper tab, and the handle is comfortable yet large enough for any sized mitts. It's definitely tactical in nature but the ultra-fast action makes this a stylish EDC knife for those preferring larger knives. It's another awesome limited production, individually numbered piece from Custom Knife Factory and Tashi. We look forward to more collaborations between the two coming in the future.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
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.
Powdered metal developed for knife blades which provides good corrosion resistance and very high hardness for excellent wear resistance during hard use cutting.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
