John Barker is known for his stylish tanto blades and incredible flipping action. Many of his customs use his close friend Lee Williams' innovative Kickstop flipper mechanism and this Ferus model is no different. The Kickstop acts like a blade launcher as the flipper tab is not connected to the actual blade itself but the frame, similar to a GTC SLT. This not only creates the impressive action that you've come to expect from Barker, Williams, and WingMan but also allows for the aesthetic that you see here. Normally, you'd have the flipper tab extending past the frame and acting as a finger guard but that's not the case with the Ferus. It has a very streamlined look and feel that make it an excellent EDC piece.
The Ferus might be the most ambitious folding knife from WingManEDC to date. It features an integral titanium frame with 3D machined titanium inlays on each side. The interior of the integral stonewashed frame is heavily skeletonized to reduce precious weight on this utility design. It has an extremely solid feeling in the hand which almost clashes with its extremely lightweight nature but it just works. The Ferus gives you excellent peace of mind during hard use, dazzles the eye, and entertains even the most fidgety among us. It's an incredible design from John Barker and WingManEDC and we're excited to bring it to you.
