SCDMTF3RWCFM390: F3R Red Carbon Fiber Flipper, M390
Sergey and Igor Shirogorov, rest his soul, produce some of the finest knives available. They're a pair of Russian custom knifemakers with a true worldwide following. Their custom division knives are some of the rarest and most sought after on the market and their mid-tech models, which this one is, are just about the same. They feature the same hand fit and finishing and exquisite detail work as the custom division knives, without the exorbitant price tag. These are true works of art and simply beautiful.
The 95 Flipper is Shirogorov's most recognizable model and has been referred to as the Sebenza of flippers. Chris Reeve's Sebenza is the production folder by which all others are compared for its simple, straight forward design and utterly tight tolerances. The model 95 has the flipping action that every other designer and maker strives to achieve. It's crisp, fast, smooth and creates a snap unparalleled in the industry. The F3 is the liner lock version of the model 95 with handle scales made from 3D machined red carbon fiber.
This mid-tech F3R Flipper could become the jewel of your collection. It's such a rare and utterly perfect knife in every way that it will undoubtedly knock whatever you're currently carrying out of your pocket and maybe for good. The action is faster and smoother than any other knife in our building. The 3.875" drop point blade is made from Bohler M390 stainless steel with a high flat grind. The handle is contoured red carbon fiber over titanium liners which gives this knife a comfortable thickness you don't get on the Model 95. The pocket clip is made from milled titanium and is one of the most copied clip designs out there because it looks amazing and just works. It even has a run of jimping on the exterior to help you get this knife in and out of your pocket. If you've wanted to add a Shirogorov to your collection, this is it!
