As popular as tactical folders are and have been in the knife industry and with the knife-buying public in general, flipper folders have taken that segment of the industry by storm. They fly off the store shelves and Web pages as fast as the blades are deployed.
If you’ve ever wondered how they’re made, how they work or what makes them so quick, the February 2016 issue of BLADE® Magazine includes a feature article by ABS master smith Wally Hayes on “How To Make A Flipper Folder.” Within the story, the author takes you through the main process of flipper folder making step-by-step.
