Quartermaster QSE-10 Biff Tannen Flipper 3" CPM-154 Stonewashed Blade, Titanium Handles
QAQSE10: QSE-10 Biff Tannen
"Well lookie what we have here...," it's the QTRMSTR QSE-10! As with each premiere, QTRMSTR has learned new techniques as a result of their last successful build and they've all been utilized here.
Their stout "Biff Tannen" model is a full titanium frame-lock flipper. Its geometry is reminiscent of a butcher's cleaver, but with a far better piercing-tip. The flipper tab (which works amazing when pushed 'like a button' rather than used 'as a lever') doubles as a great finger choil for protection during your tougher chopping tasks. We love the angle the blade is at when you're holding this knife. It makes rip and draw cuts an absolute breeze and the handle shape is very ergonomic. QTRMSTR's signature design elements can be found throughout this design: from the wEDM jimping patterns they're calling "tracers" to the stepped down machining on the scales near the lock, this QTRMSTR original is a first in many ways for the knife industry.
The ORB Pivot System
A sealed ball-bearing technology based off the operational characteristics of a thrust bearing. This thrust bearing technology is widely used, from motorsports to automation, but never before in knives.
The ORB has many advantages over other advanced pivot mechanisms: dirt and pocket lint cannot impede the track of these rollers, they're encased. The ball-bearing system tightens the tolerances-in and around the pivot of the folding knife, as a result the lockup is vault tight, yet the rollers allow for almost effortless rotation. The lack of 'play' at any point on the rotational axis of the blade is truly unlike anything currently being made at this price point in the United States. All of these advantages are afforded simply by placing the ORB at the center of each of QTRMSTR's designs and expanding on it.
