Tom Mayo / Lee Williams Donk Kickstop Flipper
~4″ hand-rubbed blade; ~9″ OAL length. 99% Condition, Some very minor handling/storage blemishes.
Over 50 holes, in Tom Mayo’s Mountain/Volcano Pattern. This is one of the most sought after flippers out there, hands down. Rare collaboration knife featuring Lee Williams Donk model, with the patented “Kick-Stop” action, with a disappearing flipper tab upon opening. In our opinion, the Kick-Stop is a faster and more secure mechanical flipper action when comparing to others like the Stan Wilson NFF or the GTC Airborne flipper.
