The Flip Shank is a multi-functional frame lock and an excellent everyday carry option now in the form of an actual flipper model from Kizer Knives. Made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a deep stonewashed finish, the razor-sharp flip shank is tough enough to withstand the rigors of the outdoors but light enough to carry in a fifth pocket. The unique clip point blade profile lends itself equally well for use as a utility knife, a small skinner, or a last-ditch self-defense tool. The handle is comfortable in the hand with the large finger choil and the cut out makes the frame lock easy to disengage. This knife has a very solid feeling in the hand and just begs to have a lanyard thrown on it so it can be easily fished from a pocket of bag. Designed by Alex Shunnarah of ARS Knives.
