An S35VN Flipper With a Look You’ll Only Find Here

The Bestech Dolphin is aptly named. When closed, the flipper looks like a dorsal fin poking out as a dolphin charges forward through the water. The arched spine resembles the back of a dolphin as well. Aside from looks, the knife is built with the best of the best. Its 3.5-inch blade is made from premium S35VN steel, which is perhaps the best commercial steel on the market in terms of all-around performance. This Massdrop-exclusive version features a unique look with a satin finish on the flats and secondary bevel and a stonewashed finish on the main bevel and spine. The blade is housed inside a 6AL4V titanium frame with skeleton-like splotches. The result is a deep-sea look that’s sure to turn heads. Blade deployment is as smooth as a dolphin gliding through the water. The blade opens effortlessly with a press on the flipper tab. Rounding out the knife is a slim tip-up clip in silver or blue.

Note: At checkout, choose a blue pocket clip or a silver pocket clip. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we can only ship this knife to select countries.

A Closer Look at S35VN Steel

Developed by Crucible Industries (one of the leading manufacturers of specialty steels for the cutlery industry) and Chris Reeve (pioneer of the integral frame lock), S35VN is perhaps the most balanced blade steel ever created in terms of all-around performance. It’s made through a process known as Crucible Powdered Metallurgy, which results in near perfect consistency in the distribution of carbides. Compared to conventional melting practices, the CPM process produces a steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grindability, and toughness.
