Classy Flipper Knifes By Perry Knife Works

Posted by Ainsley Aiken on December 11th, 2018

Among the many different categories of knives, flipper knife is one such category that was introduced to this market in the mid-90s. This category of the knife is quick to open and easy to use with low maintenance, and the method of opening a knife in single-handed. It was a fantastic introduction over the last 50 or 60 years to the history of knife-making. For easier handling, the creators of the knives introduced the concept of thumb stud and thumb disk that allows for single-handed deployment but does not guarantee for the fast or attractive opening of the knife.

With the introduction of the flipper knife, the thumb hole design became even more famous. As it made handling the knife convenient along with the ingenious and straightforward development. The wave feature of the knife is designed so to make it fast or faster than switchblades.

The flipper style knives designed by Perry Knife Works makes it easy, automatic and unnecessarily assists in execution for most of the users. The flipper concept was made possible by two other innovations that are Michael Walker’s liner lock and Chris Reeve’s frame lock. The underlying mechanisms of the flipper knife are straightforward though it comes in several different shapes. To specify the basic design of knives designed by Perry knifes, a part of the blade is shaped into a shark-fin like projection that expands through the spine of the knife whenever it is closed. The liner or the frame lock of the flipper knife is necessary because of the open-rear construction of the flipper knife.

To continue with the execution of the flipping operation of the knife. It should be mentioned that pulling back or pushing down the flipper puts pressure on the detent (i.e., it is the catch in the knife which prevents the flow of the motion until released). The combination of the bearing and a tiny notch on the blade of the knife and the handle that is designed to hold the blade closed. Then the blade quickly snaps into the open position, when the applied pressure overcomes the detent. The flipping operation of the knife actually depends on the detent, but a good flipper can be spotted if a novice can open the knife in a snap with no wrist or arm action, only the finger pressure should be enough to open the knife smoothly. With the presence of ultra-smooth bearing based pivots, flipper knife has encouraged other knife innovations as well.
