Beastly 154CM Flipper in 4 Styles

Available on Massdrop before anywhere else, the Bestech Rhino looks and feels just like it sounds. To be blunt, it’s a tank. Measuring 8.5 inches long, it weighs nearly half a pound and has an almost three-quarter-inch-thick handle. That’s a whole lot of knife to help you tackle any tough task with little effort. The blade is made from strong, corrosion-resistant 154CM steel. At 4 millimeters thick, it’s a bruiser that can handle hard cuts and slices. The handle, made from grip-friendly G-10, helps facilitate a positive, forward grip for extra power. There’s also a choil at the base of the blade if you want to choke up. Built with a liner lock, the knife opens by way of the flipper tab. A common element of Bestech knives, the flipper deploys smoothly time and time again. Rounding out the folder is a tip-up clip for right-handed carry.

Note: At checkout, choose between a black or brown handle and a black titanized or satin-finished blade. This drop is limited to 136 units. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.

I clearly did not notice you didn't get those screws out...that's quite funny. Thanks for the info/advice. As with the discussion of sharpeners, I'm happy to see I'm not too far off the mark with what I've been doing; I think my biggest problem has not been considering that many screws will have blue loctite, and some might even have red. I've just been attacking them as if put in place by a person who cared about them and the knife they're in as much as I do. So after saying it had been months since I stripped a screw I stripped TWO on my beloved ZT 0393. Entirely my fault--I'd taken them off a number of times before but this time I was in a hurry and I really, really wanted to get my new blue-twill carbon fiber scales on before I had to leave my house again for the weekend. And my hands were unsteady from drinking coffee w/o food, and from gripping a steering wheel for hrs earlier that day. But I was pretty excited to see how those scales were going to look, and in my haste didn't properly seat the bit into the very small T5 scale screws, and yeah...stripped both of them. But I got lucky in that they were dead center in the middle of the scales, which were held on at each end only by the pivot and pocket clip/filler tab screws, so once that hardware was off (many hours later), the scales could spin freely around the stripped screws. Took a while, but I using the scales themselves I got enough torque lift the heads up enough to get pliers around them. Then I pirated the identical screws from my 0393 sprint run to finally get the carbon fiber scales installed. And KAI USA is kindly replacing the stripped screws at no cost, so all's well that ends well. I'm biased of course, but along with the upgrade of the copper pivot screw and filler tab, and the blue titanium pocket clip, I think those scales make this about as fine looking a knife I've ever seen: https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/TjzWMHQR0iONduIJ8Vol_20180730_183926.jpg https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/i5vn3AlTBe5KCvOghagd_20180730_183806.jpg https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/img_comment/ACRH7dHhSGme5oyoVJ7M_20180730_184016.jpg
