Cold Steel 20MWC Wes Crawford Model 1 Flipper - 4034SS Blade - Black GFN Handle

Custom knifemaker Wes Crawford has been a friend of Cold Steel for years, so they were happy to collaborate with him on the creation of an inexpensive version of one of his pricey custom “flippers”. The result is the new Crawford Model 1. Strongly resembling Wes’s custom knife, the blade features a wide saber grind and a strong, sharp point with plenty of belly for cutting and slashing. It’s made from Japanese 4034 Stainless and is hollow ground to a thin, razor edge that will cut at the slightest touch. And, because Wes’s “flipper” is integrated into the tang, it can be opened lightning fast! The handle of the Crawford Model 1 mimics Wes’s original’s profile and silhouette but is made from a strong (yet economical), GFN (glass reinforced nylon) that includes traction rubber inlays, and a low-profile pocket clip. To keep your fingers safe from potential harm, Cold Steel has equipped the Crawford 1 with their leaf spring lock, and a (patent pending) secondary safety mechanism that, when engaged is extremely resistant to shock and impact.
