Painstakingly precise. When a watchmaker takes up knifemaking, the knife world inherits a new definition for “precise.” Slim yet hard-working, understated yet powerful, the Flat Out™ everyday carry folding knife is a beautifully badass paradox. Designer Matthew Lerch of Sussex, WI has practiced jewelry making, watch making, and he’s made a serious name for himself as a custom knifemaker. Now, he’s channeled his expertise into creating the Flat Out™.
Its striking profile starts with the thin spearpoint blade style and is balanced by a highly ergonomic and shapely handle. Subtle details like a two-tone satin finish on the blade and bead blast finish on the handle polish the high aesthetic. In motion, though, is where the Flat Out™ truly shines—open it a mere 30 degrees, and OutBurst® takes over, deploying the blade at shockingly quick speeds. A frame lock keeps it solidly in place. Exacting design meets hardworking performance in the Flat Out™.
How OutBurst® Assisted Opening Works:
Simply manually open the blade up to 30 degrees and the patented OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism opens the knife fully so that you’re good to go. The powerful assist mechanism also holds the blade securely closed when not in use.
