Inspired by traditional Japanese Higo knives, the iQ Flipper from Quiet Carry is a compact symphony of high grade titanium, carbon fibre and stainless steel. It’s also incredibly slim and light, weighing just a mere 2.2. ounces. For the impeccably sharp and long-lasting blade, Quiet Carry vacuum heat-treated the VG10 stainless steel to ensure the utmost in strength and durability. Suffice to say, the EDC knife is good for a slew of functions, meaning everything from slicing fruit to cutting the rope on your surfboard.
To call the iQ Carry Flipper Knife sleek would be an understatement. Perhaps we should just let the numbers speak for themselves. Specifically, we’re talking about the 120k Quiet Carry has already raised on Kickstarter, when their initial funding goal was about 100k less than that. Apparently, a lot of people know quality when they see it. Of course, Quiet Carry’s already strong reputation for manufacturing premium, minimalist carry knives doesn’t hurt.
Adding to the iQ Flipper’s swath of charms is an optimised locking system that delivers a smooth open and close every single time. Indeed, this isn’t your grandpa’s switchblade by any means. For your convenience, the flipper knife also comes with a milled deep-carry pocket clip for seamless transport. Pair all that with some elegant colourways and a machined finish that left no detail behind, and you’re looking at the EDC knife of your dreams.
