    This is my first one from designing in CAD and my first flipper model. I usually make much smaller slipjoints but I love a flipper. Since I can't import them any more I figured I better make one. There are a few changes I would like to make for the next one. Mostly due to not being show about how CAD converts to real world. There is space in the handle for about 1/4" more blade length and I will bring the plunge back further to lengthen the blade too.

    The specs:

    • Overall length: 242mm (9.5")
    • Closed length: 139mm (5.5")
    • Blade: 4.4mm CPM154CM
    • Liners: 2mm 6AL4V Titanium (0.080")
    • Scales: 5mm Tan G10
    • Pivot: 5.5mm with caged bearings
    • Standoffs: Aluminium
    • Weight: 181 gms (6.4oz)

    There weren't really any problems as such. It flips amazingly. Just some improvements to be made. Improving the blade length and making it easier to close one handed are the major things. Already fixed the second bit on the prototype but the blade length is needing a bit more redesign work.

    I really need to update my website :D All that stuff is so old.
