Jeff VanderMeulen Custom Instigator #13 Flipper Knife 4" RWL-34 Hand Rubbed Satin Blade, Carbon Fiber Handles with Mokuti Bolsters and Clip
JVMINST13: Custom 4" Instigator #13
The Instigator is one of Jeff VanderMeulen's newest designs and this is the 13th model that he has built. It's the knife you'll currently find Jeff carrying in a smaller size as his everyday carry. It's like a pocket Persian knife with a classy look and devastating cutting power. The 4" beautifully compound ground blade is made from RWL-34 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. The handle is contoured carbon fiber with large Nichols boomerang mokuti bolsters over full stonewashed titanium liners. The right-hand, tip-up mokuti clip has a little space between it and the titanium scale allowing you to clip it onto your pants more easily. If it were flush against the frame, the tension would be too strong to insert and remove it from your pocket with relative ease. It shows Jeff's attention to detail and the complete knowledge he has about his designs. He even includes his maker's mark, the model name, serial number, and manufacturing date on the inside of the frame to show that this knife is the real deal. It utilizes a bearing system for extremely smooth action and all components of this knife are fastened using one-sized Torx screws for easy adjustment. This is one utterly awesome tactical knife that will provide you with a sense of certainty and confidence that it can get the job done.
