Brad Southard is an American custom knifemaker who has designed several models for Spyderco including the Southard and Positron flipper. His latest reveal is the Hanan, meaning "gracious" or "gracious gift" in Hebrew, which combines the styling of a classic gentlemen's folder with the function of a flipper. Flipper knives are all part of the folder knife category and are easy operated thanks to a pronounced tab that protrudes out of the forward part of the spine. This particular flipper utilizes
Spyderco's patented Compression Lock mechanism--allowing users to safely close the blade with one hand without ever having the operating hand come near the cutting edge. and the ball bearing washers translates to smooth fluid action. This model, the C227GP, features a marbled black G-10 handle coupled with titanium bolsters, nested titanium liners, a recurved clip point style blade in a satin finish, Spyderco's trademark round hole opening feature and the reversible custom pocket clip allows for tip up carry only but is eligible for a left or right hand carry option.
