The Flame, a sleek flipper knife designed by Michael Zieba, boasts an attractive look without compromising quality. This Flame model has a dark stonewashed titanium handle and a dark stonewashed Bohler M390 steel blade in a dagger style.
It looked like a good knife from a respected knife maker and company. But once the knife arrived, it was a poor performer. The knife was dry and squeaked when flipped. Proprietary hardware did not allow me to safely take the knife apart and fix the problem. The detent is very weak and fails to flip about 60% of the the time. I wish I did not purchase this knife. More quality control, rather than marketing effort would be my recommendation. Update Wow. I can't believe it! This knife broke in and it's the best... NOPE. NOPE. NOPE. Still a dud. Save your money, go out with a friend and buy some big ice cream cones instead.
