Possible Lefty version
In this design I set out to create a knife which I would never get tired of.
Flipper, Front-flipper, thumb and spidy-flicker
All these opening methods are efficiently integrated into this design without making any sacrifices.
Features a low profile, “vanishing” flipper tab- in closed position it does not protrude past the profile of the knife and shows mercy to your pocket. When the knife is open the flipper hides completely and does not prevent any part of the edge touch a cutting block.
Made entirely in Seattle, Washington inside of the states oldest and finest Aerospace machine shops by me and a couple of helpers.
I will film every step of making this knife a reality and the backers will be the first ones to see this content.
Join me on a manufacturing journey, though every stage of manufacturing of a custom knife.
Experience Grimsmo moments and solve production issues together with me inside of a 60 year old Aerospace machine shop.
I want to deliver you insights into the process as well as a physical knife and hopefully some entertainment as well by the end of this project.
