CNKTRICOCU: Custom Trico Front Flipper - Copper

Nell Knives

Custom knifemaker Chad Nell is a perfectionist at heart and truly one of the industry's best. His folding knives scream quality while being very aesthetically pleasing. They are built tough enough to get any job done and will instill in you a true sense of pride in your ownership of one. He uses the best available materials and time-tested manufacturing techniques to bring handmade quality and durability to every knife.

The Trico is your prototypical everyday folding knife with a little Chad Nell twist thrown in for good measure. It's compact, precise, and definitely beautiful - but is here to perform when you need it. It's very similar to the Midge design but whereas that knife featured a detent lock, this one is a frame lock design. We had the best results opening the Trico using our index finger like a regular flipper on the back half of the jimping compared to using out thumb right on the top - that didn't go quite as well. Once you get the hang of this knife, it will be a mainstay in your rotation because it just so darn nice. Handmade in the USA.
