The Bladed Sentinel
Jared Oeser is the epitome of the modern master. Daring in design and unerringly precise in execution, he combines the best of old-world craftsmanship with new-age flair to create some of the most highly sought-after custom blades today.
Dated Feb 28, 2022, this iconic Tengu is designed as a nifty flipper and is one of Jared's most sought after blades. Tengu translates to "Heavenly Sentinel" in Japanese and is a legendary creature found in ancient Japanese folklore – and this bad boy certainly lives up to its name. What's more, the OS stands for "Oeser Size" and is slightly larger than the Tengu flipper – packing more bite and punch with every cut.
The star of the show is the satin-finished, compound–hollow-ground AEB-L tanto blade. The stunning swedge and convex-ground tip enhance strength and stability, while the straight edge works wonders at all manners of EDC tasks.
Compact in the pocket yet big in hand, the Tengu OS Flipper features a deceptively simple yet highly ergonomic handle made from titanium with a hardened lockbar insert, along with vintage green paper micarta over gray G10 for unmatched lightweight performance, along with a matching gray G10 shield and titanium clip to top things of.
Light enough to carry anywhere and beautiful enough to never appear threatening – the Oeser Tengu OS Flipper is the perfect gentleman's knife that's fit for duty in both the office and the field. If you're looking for your forever knife – this might just be it. Fair warning, Jared's masterpieces are always in high demand. So make your move now before it's gone for good.
