The BT1710 Imp flipper is a small flipper design from Bestech Knives. The shape and size make it a tactical folder but the action is so good you'll want to carry it every day. The 2" sheepsfoot blade is made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a stonewashed finish. The action riding on ceramic ball bearings is buttery smooth and the lockup is nice and tight. The ergonomic handle is made from milled 6AL4V titanium with a blue finish. The shape locks it into your hand and the thumb ramp is perfectly executed for comfortable extended cutting tasks. The pocket clip and backspacer are made from 6AL4V titanium for maximum quality assurance.

About CPM-S35VN Stainless Steel

CPM-S35VN is a martensitic stainless steel designed to offer improved toughness over CPM-S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM-S30V. Its chemistry has been rebalanced so that it forms some niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting niobium carbides for some of the vanadium carbides makes CPM-S35VN about 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM-S35VN's improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. Because both vanadium and niobium carbides are harder and more effective than chromium carbides in providing wear resistance, the CPM stainless blade steels offer improved edge retention over conventional high chromium steels such as 440C and D2.

my new edc
it's a good lightweight edc , I used to open up boxes and packages, fit and finish on this knife looks good, has a modern look to it, the finger choyle and thumb ramp fits well on my hand giving a full grip if I ever need to do heavy cutting . I bought this knife base on the look, bought on impulse and I am glad how well it turn out. nothing I can complaint about this little knife.
