Les George Custom Harpy Flipper 4.25" Nichols Fade Damascus Blade, 3D Machined Titanium Handles with Mokume Inlay
LGCHARPYDAMMK: Custom Damascus Harpy Flipper, Mokume
Les George Knives
One of the hardest parts of making custom folders is managing the variations of materials; steel not straight, titanium bowed and not the same thickness though out, etc. All these things play havoc with knife function and Les spends a lot of his own time on the custom knives fixing those inconsistencies. A lot of time! But it is all worth it when Les produces something like this.
The Harpy is another excellent tactical design from Les George. If it looks familiar, that's because Zero Tolerance has a production version of this knife known as the ZT0920. It, like the Rockeye and Hydra before it, is an excellent tactical design with the looks of a presentation piece. What we have here is a half-dress Harpy with a 4.25" blade made from Chad Nichols stainless Fade Damascus and a 3D machined titanium handle with beautiful mokume inlay and Zirconium pivot collars. It honestly does not get much better than this from one of the industry's best and this beauty was 100% handmade in the USA.
