The two brothers behind Ferrum Forge, Elliott and Chris Williamson, have been producing functional knives that feature high performance, premium builds, and their trademark aesthetics for over a decade. Their recent collaborations with WE Knife Company and CIVIVI have made their designs more accessible to the knife enthusiast community, highlighted by successful models like the eagerly anticipated CIVIVI Odium and the more recent WE Knife Co. Minax. With the new Ferrum Forge Stinger, they offer their latest take on the take-anywhere EDC flipper knife, this time utilizing a robust new blade steel in a compact, light, and accessible package.

The new Ferrum Forge Stinger is one of the few knife models using premium Nitro-V stainless steel, a recent favorite with custom makers for its ability to be heat-treated for greater hardness and better wear resistance. It’s also a choice more commonly seen in fixed blade designs than folders. This blade steel choice gives the 3.25" drop point blade high hardness and enhanced edge retention, while still being easy to sharpen. The flat grind and blade geometry make it a great slicer, while the stonewashed finish and the steel choice itself brings excellent corrosion resistance even in wet environments. This is a blade that you don’t have to baby, turning the Stinger into a resilient go-anywhere knife that, at 2.54 ounces, is still compact and light enough for pocket EDC.

The blade deploys via the familiar jimped flipper tab, but also features a shortened fuller groove that you can use to slow-roll or flick it out. This gives you more options for opening this smooth-firing, fidget-friendly knife. When you’re done, disengaging the liner lock lets the blade drop closed, while the minimalist, deep-carry pocket clip keeps it secure and out of the way until you need it next.

The 4.125" handles provide ample space for a good grip, enhanced by a finger cutout and textured G10 scales. For precision work, you have the option of choking up and using the forward finger choil cut into the blade. For fans of Ferrum Forge designs, this should be a familiar feature, included in even in older designs like the Drop Falcon and Drop Gent. The now-classic silhouette takes on a new form in the Stinger, featuring more sweeping and aggressive lines, complemented by the brand’s iconic, triangular logo on the show-side pivot.

A robust blade steel, great ergonomics, plus smooth action give this compact and lightweight flipper the chops to be an exceptional EDC knife, in a practical and accessible package that can be a joy to carry, use, and maintain. Check it out at the link below.
