The Kershaw Fraxion is a lightweight EDC flipper with a sleek contemporary design from custom knifemaker Jens Anso. Its streamlined design features slim G-10 handles with a carbon fiber overlay, keeping carry weight just under 2 ounces. The clip point blade is built from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a top swedge for enhanced slicing performance.
I purely bought this as an impulse buy, because Birdshot passingly mentioned he liked this knife. I literally didn't even read the blurb, just hit add to cart and then submitted in time for the Black Friday sale. When I got it, I couldn't believe how LIGHT this is. I mean it feels like NOTHING in my hand. And the flipping is SUPER smooth. It's a lot of fun to just sit around flipping. It's my new favorite fidget flipper. For me the unique feel of it is that while the knife is so light in the hand it flips so smoothly. It's a soothing combination of both light and smooth. Pleasantly impressed. This has replaced my Kershaw Hinderer assisted flipper which I'm not crazy about anyway as my secondary.
Bought this knife for it's fantastic size and weight. Easy EDC. Got it home and was surprised how much I like the flipper action on this. Made in China but Kershaw is upping their game. Straight edge. Overall quality = high. However, I'm discovering a big beef with this knife. It is all about sharp angles and I mean everywhere from the blade, which is great, to the handle and the flipper. Every edge on the G-10 is sharp. Not so uncomfortable in your hand when you're using it but you will find that while you practice flipping it out that the bottom of the scales will begin to dig into your palm. I had to file all the edges to make it more comfortable. Finally, the flipper nub (it's pretty small) has very sharp jimping. Wears into your index finger. If you only pull your knives out of your pocket to use them than you'll love this little guy. If you like to play around with them or practice flipping (probably slightly dangerous) than you'll be dissapointed with the sharp angles. 4 stars because it's so difficult to find a light flipper in this price range.
