Ray Laconico/Mike Vagnino Custom Javelin Flipper Knife 3.55" CTS-XHP Acid Washed Blade, Blue Titanium Handles
LVKJAVELINBL: Custom LVKnives Javelin Folding Knife, Blue
Ray Laconico Custom Knives
Mike Vagnino and Ray Laconico both bring different things to the knifemaking table and work together to bring out the best product possible. LVKnives are complete and total collaborations between the two with Ray's design, Mike fabricating the parts and both men handling the assembly. We are happy to bring you the next knife in the LVK lineup, the Javelin.
The best way of describing the Javelin is that it's the blade of Ray's Skinny Bear combined with the handle of Mike's Eliminator. It features a 3.55" acid washed CTS-XHP stainless blade with a gorgeous clip point shape. The thumb ramp is very well designed for when you're gripping and using this knife hard. The blade to handle ratio on this flipper is nearly one-to-one, providing you with a lot of cutting power in a relatively compact package.
The handle is blue anodized titanium with a light textured finish for grip. The ergonomics are absolutely fantastic and the thin profile makes this knife carry very discreetly in the pocket. It's comfortable in both the forward and reverse grips and the flipper tab disappears into the handle when open, which is a very nice touch. The knife features caged bearings, an internal stop pin, pillar construction, a titanium spring clip and Torx screw hardware throughout. This is the second model from LVKnives and is a superior folder built to be used hard each and every day. Handmade in Visalia, California.
