Wes Crawford, the custom knife maker, has been a friend of Cold Steel for years, so they were happy to collaborate with him on the creation of an inexpensive version of one of his pricey custom flippers. The result was our new Crawford Model 1. Strongly resembling Wess custom knife, the blade features a wide saber grind and a strong, sharp point with plenty of belly for cutting and slashing. Its made from Japanese 4034 Stainless and is hollow ground to a thin, razor edge that will cut at the slightest touch. And, because Wess flipper is integrated into the tang, it can be opened lightning fast!
