Blacktag is our economy line of knives. They are not marked with the Flying Steel logo and are not covered by a maintenance plan. Blacktag items feature the core quality of Flying Steel knives without the impeccable finish and customer support. Blacktag items may include blemishes, inconsistencies, and imperfections.
The Starship AW is based on our 2010 Flying Phi design, which is a simple triangle shape intended to address the balance limitations of the Shur-knife. An extreme handle-heavy balance is provided by the wide handle and narrow blade.
