A Special Run new flipper known as the Model 13 this way comes from the mind of maker Les Voorhies and built with pride in Germany by Boker Knives. Some very desirable components in the Model 13 and just a joy to flip. Damascus slabs, Titanium and Bearings. You betcha!
This Run is limited to just 199 pieces World Wide. Each piece is individually serialized ###/199 on the blade’s spine.
The Blade: Premium CPM-154 steel was chosen for this model and given a pristine two-toned satin flats/media polish grinds finish. It’s razor sharp and opens via an integral flipper tab that protrudes out the back of the handle. A nice and easy pull of the lever whips the blade right out in the ready-to-use position with a solid “thwack”. This smooth action is thanks to a uniform ball bearings pivot system. Once open, the flipper tab creates an integral guard protecting your fingers during cutting tasks.
The Handle: Bronze anodized titanium liners and backspacer create the solid construction. Hand-forged Russian Damascus handle slabs are actually cut smaller than the liners to reveal their unique look and accenting holes near the end of the handle. Bronze Titanium Torx hardware and pivot are a nice touch on the Model 13. Boker nailed the ergonomics and overall “feel” of a Voorhies custom knife with this one.
Each flipper comes in a Boker Germany “Clear View” Hovering Display box with microfiber baggie inside and Certificate of Authenticity.
