Why did we go with CPM S35VN steel? CPM S35VN is a high-end martensitic stainless powder steel made by Crucible; this steel consists of high Carbon, Chromium, and Vanadium and has been carefully designed and customized to provide a great balance between toughness, corrosion resistance, and hardness. It also provides improved and better toughness over its predecessor CPM S30V. Even with a Rockwell hardness of 60, you’ll find that S35VN isn’t a pain to sharpen versus other premium or high-end steels on the market.
When first introduced in 2009, it became clear that S35VN steel was a top-grade steel to rival the best in its class. Knives made with S35VN steel can be used for various purposes. Thanks to its high grade toughness and ability to become razor sharp, it is ideal for use in hunting and bushcraft knives, where toughness and wear-resistance are key. Knives using this steel will surely perform even under the often less-than-ideal conditions found outdoors. For avid woodsmen, campers, and hunters, you will want a knife that provides an impressive, quality knife experience but also will not let you down where knives with other steels might. If you are frequently found outdoors in rainy, muddy, and otherwise dangerous conditions, than so will your knife. The rugged dependability offered by S35VN steel in less-than-ideal conditions makes it quite obvious why one would want it in their knives.

Impressed with the knife. Well made. So glad that it is not only made in the USA, but in Charleston, Tennessee.

Mitch, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. It seems that you were very much satisfied with the Mad Mike Flipper. I am however confused about the one star rating, is there an issue with the knife or perhaps an issue with the shipping that you failed to mention in your review? Please let us know and we’ll be happy to address any issues that you may have had. Thanks. Dave, Justin Case Tactical
Great edc knife
Great edc knife for a very reasonable price point came extremely sharp and rides in the pocket great. Used it so far for just general cutting task and will definitely continue to be in the knife rotation.
“Mad Mike Flipper”
My cousin ordered me this knife, I’ve been in need of a new one for a while. I’ve carried a pocket knife now for almost 20 years and have learned how much it means to have good quality as a daily pocket carry. I am very impressed. It has a great solid feel to it. Smooth assisted open spring, and a very solid carry pocket clip. The blade is very sharp and is coated titanium grey, giving it a good look and corrosion resistance. Basically it’s all you would want out of a pocket it knife. This guy knows what he’s doing and I will be referring others and will use him again in the future.
Very Good Knife
Purchased from White Oak armory in Cleveland Tn Very nice blade. (very sharp) Light weight but still seems very durable. Amazing steel used at very reasonable price. Over all very pleased with my purchase, will purchase from Justincasetactical again.
Buy the knife!!
Fantastic quality knife and super sharp straight out of the box. This is my 3rd purchase from Justin Case Tactical and I have never been disappointed. Buy the knife - it's absolutely worth the money!
