Introduced at the 2015 BLADE Show, the Sniper flipper is a relatively inexpensive USA-made everyday carry specialist with a super thin profile. One of the standout features on this knife is the stainless steel liner lock tab that wraps around the 6061 aluminum handle to form the pocket clip. While lightweight, the Sniper's 5 inch handle makes it sturdy in hand with a full four-finger grip and thumb jimping up top.
The upswept blade tip adds to the smooth flow of the Sniper's design, and when closed, the blade all but disappears in the handle. The blade is set on the proprietary Brous Bearing System pivot for efficient, smooth operation. As a side note, the jimping on the handle won't cause discomfort from "finger drag" when using the flipper.
This model has an orange anodized aluminum handle and satin finished D2 tool steel blade.
Got this knife for Christmas, and immediately fell in love with it. The blade comes shaving sharp, and the flipping action is like no other. There is no blade play what so ever. If you are on the fence of getting this knife, get it.
