Brad Zinker Mini FR Framelock - Sambar Stag (Custom)

Sambar Stag Slicer

      As one of the most highly regarded custom knife makers, Brad Zinker is famed for his slim and striking designs. And it's no wonder that he's also a voting member of the Knifemakers Guild (this guy knows knives).

      A culmination of Brad's decades of hard-forged experience, the Brad Zinker Mini FR Framelock is one of the thinnest and most compact framelocks ever made. The versatile drop-point blade is made from CPM-154 stainless steel with a gorgeous hand-rubbed satin finish and rides on caged bearings for a smooth and snappy action and lock-up.

      The star of the show is probably the Sambar Stag scales, which is harvested from the naturally-shed horns of the majestic Sambar Stag. No stags were harmed and no two scales in the world are ever the same (because each and every shed Stag horn has it own unique shape, texture and characteristic). The Sambar Stag scales on the Mini FR are prime examples with a warm, cream colored tone, stunning texture, and long, dark stripes. 

      It's no understatement when we say that there's nothing quite like a Brad Zinker blade, and that you've to experience it for yourself to understand the magic that Brad imparts through his masterful manipulation of sharpened steel. We only have one example of this custom blade – so make your move now if you want to own a significant piece of knifemaking lore.
