LGCEREBSBLK: Les George/Allen Elishewitz Cerebrus Mid-Tech Flipper
Les George Knives
One of the hardest parts of custom folder making is managing the variations of materials. Steel not straight, titanium bowed and not the same thickness throughout, etc. All these things play havoc with knife function and Les spends a lot of his time on the custom knives fixing those inconsistencies. A lot of time!
So Les had an idea for a project where he took out as many of these variables as possible. Keeping the design simple, speeding things up, adding value and versatility by changing the engineering, producing them at a high quality and high rate were just some of the goals of Les' mid-tech project. The initial design was his popular VECP model that Protech makes in a production version. Les now has a collaboration between himself and custom knifemaker Allen Elishewitz called the Cerebrus.
Both Les and Allen are very excited about this project. What they were going for was a very reliable and durable, hard-use folder. They've been working on it since last year and the end result has been worth the wait. The 4.5" blade is made from CPM-154 stainless steel with a black finish. The enormous flipper tang makes for easy actuation and it doubles as a finger guard when open. The handle is titanium with Morph pattern milling and an ergonomic shape that locks the design into your hand. It's wide in the hand but thin in the pocket, making it easy to carry and a pleasure to use. The blade rides smoothly on washers and opens with authority. It has a simple torx screw construction with titanium standoffs, large lanyard hole and strong titanium pocket clip. This is a superb, hard-use folder without any added frills, which is rare on an Elishewitz Creation. It's designed to be your everyday carry companion and it doesn't get much more rock solid than this.
