    Hi all, this might not exist but I'm looking for a sub 3" blade slipjoint with flipper opening.
    I'm in the UK so the laws are pretty draconian. I don't want to have to have to buy something, only to disable the lock (thus ruining it permanently).

    Thanks in advance

    I know it’s not fair - life isn’t - but I’ve seen knock offs of those on gearbest for peanuts. I’ve got two sanrenmus (I genuinely don’t know if they’re copies or not) but they’re cheap, sharp, non locking and under 3inches and well made for the money. Go to the .com site, not the UK one and type no lock knife in the search bar.

    Mine get used for box bashing and other unsavoury tasks I wouldn’t expose my spyderco Uk to. Having said all that, I’m not completely sure flippers will survive the next set of knife law revisions - but for less than a tenner, you can’t not buy a couple! Just checked, the bean copy is $23.

    Which is pretty much what I said too.
    Mine is the real thing thing and I would rather it were a clone!

    And if you decide you like the copy the production Bean might be a choice once supply catches up a bit with demand they can be had for about $100 US, Ti and M390 steel makes for a nice little backup blade for the 5th pocket at a fraction of the cost of a custom Bean.

    Well. I've ordered a knock off to see if I like it. I'm currently edc-ing a CRKT Liong Mah #5 or Spyderco UKPK frn...I really like flippers though.

    Any other ideas?

    I think my Bean is the only Slip-Joint that I own really.
    All the others Lock.

    But I am glad to see you are trying one,where did you find it for sale?

    The Isham Blackstar M390/carbon fiber is probably one of the nicer little blades that meets your criteria, unfortunately they were a limited run, and fairly pricey on the secondary market.
