An Innovative Custom Flipper
The SK23 is a custom flipper from talented knife maker, Kevin Smock, and it’s his signature and most sought-after creation. The SK23 is designed for your everyday use in mind and is built from ground up for absolute utility and performance.
Every design choice on the SK23 is purposeful and considered. The razor sharp Damasteel wharncliffe blade has a rounded spine and excels at slicing and precision cuts. It’s also able to handle heavy-duty tasks because of the robust blade stock. The Dietz-style design allows access to the blade tang for use as a flipper. This makes the entire knife simpler, cleaner, and more cohesive.
In addition, the SK23 uses an ingenious button lock release that allows for quick one-handed opening and closing. This is easily one of the most intuitive and effective locking mechanisms available today.
The solid titanium handles offer the best strength-to-weight ratio while the Damasteel blade offers top-notch cutting performance and unmatched style. Kevin’s focus on functionality over trends extends to even the titanium spring clip, which is simple, practical, and highly reliable.
This SK23 is entirely hand crafted by Kevin, and created one by one in his shop in Pennsylvania. The finesse and labor required to craft the SK23, coupled with its immense popularity, means that there is a huge backlog for this amazing everyday carry flipper. You won't be able to get them anywhere else without a long wait. If you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on the exquisite and elusive Smock Knives SK23, this is it.
