Darrel Ralph's incredible custom and mid-tech designs are prized collector's pieces that are always in extremely high demand. Now the distinctive styling and function of his knives are available to everyone at a price that fits every budget. The Maxx-Q is a production version of Ralph's groundbreaking "gunhammer" designs, which use a uniquely shaped "flipper" designed after the hammer of a semi-auto pistol. By itself or in combination with Ralph's patented assisted-opening mechanism, the flipper provides amazingly quick blade deployment with a flick of your index finger. The Maxx-Q's G-10 handle features Ralph's signature 3-D machining for a positive, comfortable grip and houses its stout liner lock mechanism. It's scientifically engineered blade design combines a slightly recurved mid-blade section with a reinforced tip to provide an extraordinary combination of cutting power and penetration. Blade length is 3-1/2" with an overall length of 8". Comes in a stealthy black "tactical" coating.
