This is a large completely custom Mel Pardue. This the first time we have seen this tactical folding dagger model from Pardue. The satin finished knife has a long 3 3/4" dagger blade. The top edge of this knife is not sharpened. The stainless steel bolster is fluted, dove tailed and hand satin finished. The handle is smooth black carbon fiber. The durable handle is rounded and hand finished. The thumb stud is also inlaid with carbon fiber, a nice custom touch. File work covers the stainless steel spacer, titanium liners and pivot. Smooth opening and closing. Crisp liner lock action.
A truly unique knife of the highest quality construction and design. If you are interested in something very functional and different from average designed flipper, then Mel Pardue has the alternative. I love the design, functionality and differences from all my custom flippers.
I certainly have no complaints about the Pardue folder. The craftmanship is top-notch; Pardue has created a beautiful knife. The filework is unique and attractive, and the folder opens very easily with the thumb stud.
Service from Knifeart was extremely fast--I had the knife two days after I ordered it via FedEx. I regularly monitor Knifeart's offerings and regard them as one of the top sites on the web if you're interested in buying custom knives.
