Kansei Matsuno Custom FL01 Friction Folder Flipper 3" D2 Sheepsfoot Blade, Silver Lightning Strike Carbon Fiber Handles, Leather Pouch
KNSFL01SLSCF: Custom FL01 Friction Folder Flipper, Silver Lightning Strike Carbon Fiber
Kansei Matsuno Custom Knives
The Kansei FL01 Friction Folder Flipper is a unique knife in its own right. It's still like most Kansei Matsuno knives in that it does not lock, however, it is his first design that you can use something other than the extended blade tang to open. It features a finger guard which doubles as a flipper tab, and your hand prevents the knife from closing during use. You need to be quick with your flipping finger as it must get out of the way before the extended tang rolls in. It feels great in the hand thanks to its slim, comfortable handle and rock solid construction, even though it does not lock. It's a gentlemen's folder you can use every day and includes a gray leather slip pouch. The blade is made from D2 tool steel with a beautiful sheepsfoot shape. The ergonomic handle is made from silver lightning strike carbon fiber over stainless steel liners with a milled stainless steel backspacer. There is no pocket clip on this model but it does come with a small paracord lanyard from Kansei Matsuno. This is a different type of non-locking knife than you're typically used to but we feel it's definitely worthy of your consideration as your next EDC.
