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 gray 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.

A gentleman folder
Good feeling, nice in the hand, easy to open with the flipper, it’s a small gentleman folder for anyone that want something with a nice design and perhaps a little bigger than the normal one.The price tag is perhaps a little too step for a China knife but I think it is worth your money !
