DescriptionFFMBHEXGRN: Masterblaster Entry Level Flipper, Green HexFerrum Forge
The Les George/Ferrum Forge collaboration Masterblaster is a fine knife different from any other currently in Les' or Elliot's current lineup. The design came from that mysterious place that is the minds of Elliot Williamson and Les George, brought to fruition by the two bouncing ideas back and forth to capture both of their design styles in this big, bold, 3.66" wharncliffe flipper.
The Masterblaster represents some important firsts and a bit of knife history. It's the first collaboration of Ferrum Forge and Les George and it's Les' first ever wharncliffe design! Elliot and Les also put their heads together to generate some truly unique machining options that give the knives a lot of character. The choices available are Slab, Flying V, Saber, and Hex patterns with standard anodization colors of bronze, blue, green, and gray. Like always, this Entry Level flipper is limited to 200 pieces and will not be made again.
The Masterblaster is, of course, a flipper first design and the action is made buttery smooth by the caged thrust bearings which also assist in the knife's strong lockup. The 3.66" wharncliffe blade is made from CPM-20CV stainless steel with a devastating tip and a nice sized finger choil. The finish on this blade is bead blasted with a heavy stonewash similar to the Hinderer working finish. It gives the blade a very handsome, sterile look and it appears to be one that will wear well over time. Each Masterblaster comes standard with a hardened D2 steel insert, integral overtravel stop, and ceramic Hoback Roller Detent. This model features a sturdy green anodized, hex milled 6Al4V titanium handle with chamfered edges, a compact bent titanium pocket clip, and titanium standoffs/pivot screw. No detail is overlooked in a Ferrum Forge product and this Masterblaster Flipper is another excellent design from two amazing knifemakers, perfect for anyone looking for a top-notch everyday carry or tactical knife at a good price.
