Someone had the bright idea to host a 1st Annual International Seattle Knife Show this past weekend. . . so I figured I should drop-in and take a look-see (since one of my other passions is collecting sharp, pointy things laugh.png).  Anyway, after spending a little time with Gavin Hawk (of "Grant & Gavin Hawk") I ended up walking out with one of his latest designs, what he calls the "Tangent" flipper.  This particular example has a Lightning Strike Carbon Fiber (LSCF) and titanium frame, Damascus steel blade of course, and the scales on the handle are genuine elephant ivory (something thanks to Obummer will be illegal to sell come the end of May).

The "Tangent" has an assisted flipper mechanism. . . which is simply a silicon band incorporated into the frame's mechanism.  You can see the black silicon band along the bottom portion of the knife's spine:

Below is a photo of two other examples of "assisted flipper" knives that are G&G Hawk creations and which I own.  The first one at left is the "BEETLE" and the second is called the "LINKS".  Ahhhh. . . I'm a bit of a G&G Hawk enthusiast.

Apparently life's to short to carry an ugly knife also.

 

Nice blades Gary!

Nice cutlery.

Ahhh. . . not sure what you are conveying with that.

Anyway, here's another photo of that skull, with it's bro (since folks seem to like skulls so much. . . nothing wrong with that!)

Well, in that case you'd need an axe handle. . . because these solid resin skulls are damned heavy.  haha.gif

I do not know.  I don't "use" the knife so the Damascus steel's Rockwell hardness has no value to me.
