The Kwaiken Flipper is the first knife from Todd Begg’s Steelcraft Series, a collaboration with Reate Knives in honor of legendary Chinese military general Sun Tzu. The design's clean, straight lines are reminiscent of a classic Kwaiken. This frame-lock design features Todd’s signature double-finger guard and handle, well as jimping on the backspacer for a better grip and a ceramic ball pocket clip for smooth and secure pocket carry.
Note: This drop is limited to our last 3 available units of the original gray finish. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
Todd Begg started working with David Deng of Reate Knives because he was unable keep up with demand for his Mid-tech knives ($1200+) and custom pieces ($4000+). Steelcraft Series knives are made to his exacting specifications and glide open smoothly on the ceramic Ikoma Korth Bearing System that Todd uses in his other knives. The Kwaiken's 6Al4V titanium handle, which is made lighter and easier to grip with the fluted pattern design, is joined with a flat-ground CPM-S35VN steel blade.
