Michael Zieba S3 "OSTASZ" Nitro-V, Frame-Lock Flipper Knife
This is Michael Zieba's model S3 OSTASZ, frame-lock flipper. I was told that this was a limited run of 75 pieces. It features an aggressive compound ground, Bowie-shaped clip point blade made of Nitro-V steel. The blade has a stonewashed finish, and has some aggressive thumb jimping on the spine for a secure grip. The blade flips effortlessly without any wrist action, credited to the caged internal bearing system. The handle / frame is textured black G10 on the presentation side, and blasted titanium on the lock side. The knife also features a solid titanium backspacer, and titanium pocket clip with hidden hardware set for tip-up carry. The knife has excellent detent, rock solid lock-up, no lock-stick, and the blade sits dead center in the frame. Michael's fit and finish are second to none. This knife is previously owned, and in new / mint condition. The knife comes in a Zieba hard plastic clamshell case, along with Michael's signed Certificate of Authenticity and red polishing cloth.
