Everyday Carry: The Benchmade Flipper
“…if you give an Indian or a mountain man a knife he’d make out anywhere, no matter what.” – Hardy Collins, from Louis L’Amour’s Down The Long Hills
Why is the Flipper recommended for Everyday Carry (EDC?) This brilliant knife opens with the speed of an automatic and the strength of the AXIS locking mechanism. As Benchmade puts it, “The convenience of a flipper with the performance of the AXIS®.” This one-hand-open knife requires just a bit of practice to maximize the speed of employment and can be opened with the index finger “flipper” tab (as pictured above) or the ambidextrous dual thumb-stud opener. The deep-carry clip is reversible and, when closed, the Flipper presents a tiny print, especially when underneath an untucked shirt.
