Les George Custom Rockeye Flipper Knife 4" Nichols Boomerang Damascus Blade, 3D Machined Titanium Handles with Cu-Ti Mokume Pivot Collars, Timascus Clip
LGCROCKEYEDAM: Custom Damascus Rockeye Folding Knife
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 throughout, 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.
If you recall, the Rockeye is named after an ordnance item of the same name and is a fabulous custom knife by Les. Since the Rockeye's job is to blow up and send a shaped charge jet into a target, you know this knife will do its job and do it well. One of the goals of the Rockeye was to have a design that Les could scale up and down at will. Since he has made them with blade lengths from 2.6" all the way up past 7", that box is definitely checked. What we have here is a half-dress model with a four-inch blade made from Chad Nichols Stainless Boomerang Damascus and a 3D machined titanium handle with timascus pocket clip with hidden hardware. The pivot collar is probably what is catching your eye the most and creating the question...what the heck is that? It's the new Cu-Ti copper-titanium mokume from Chad Nichols and Les' featured it on the backspacer as well. 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.
