ACU1821NLSMES: Small Archaeo Damascus Flipper Knife, Orange/Black G10 - KnifeCenter Exclusive
The ArtisanCutlery Archaeo is a slim flipper with smooth lines and a light touch. The 2.875" drop blade is made from VG-10 Damascus with a beautiful raindrop pattern and it features a slim piercing point. The blade deploys smoothly and quickly thanks to the integrated ball bearings in the pivot and a nice, strong detent. The G10 handles have a unique orange and black pattern that adds a lot of style to the uncomplicated profile of the knife. The shape of the handles lock the knife firmly into your grasp and give purchase to any cutting task you might need it for. The Archaeo from ArtisanCutlery makes a perfect gentleman's pocket knife.
Now for what really make this knife special. It is a detent lock model, which we've seen before, but it's the first of its kind to include a way to firmly lock the blade. The included lanyard has a bit threaded on it that can be placed into the hole on the backside of the handle, locking the blade in place. This allows you to have a locking knife which also can be carried in restrictive localities by removing the lanyard, rendering it a non-locking knife. This is the first Archaeo with a detent lock and we're sure it won't be the last.
