The KA-BAR TDI Flipper Folder is a versatile and reliable knife that can handle any situation. Whether you need it for self-defense, everyday carry, or outdoor adventures, this knife will not let you down.

The TDI Flipper Folder is designed by John Benner, a veteran police officer and the founder of Tactical Defense Institute. He knows what it takes to make a knife that is effective, durable, and easy to use in stressful scenarios. The knife features a 3-inch spear point blade made of AUS-8A stainless steel, which is corrosion-resistant and holds a sharp edge.

The blade can be opened quickly and smoothly with either the flipper tab or the thumb hole, and it locks securely with the crossbar lock mechanism. The handle is made of glass-filled nylon, which is lightweight and comfortable to hold. The handle also has a reversible pocket clip for tip-up carry and an ambidextrous design that suits both right-handed and left-handed users.

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was 'k a bar'. The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.

Ka-bar flipper

Very cheap feeling and feels thick...takes up to much pocket space..the fixed version in the sheath is the way to go.
