Introducing the Archer Framelock Flipper

From the inception of Tactile Knife Company we've wanted to make the best knife we could with the equipment on hand, after some recent upgrades and expansion, we needed a 'Halo' project to push our team and process to the limit. This had us searching for the right designer.

At a trade show in 2022 the stars aligned. Tired after a long day, we were hangry and asked a few other guys to join us for some Pizza. TJ Schwarz, a prolific designer from Boise, Idaho was one of them and a friendship was founded. We knew we needed to work together and the concept of the Archer Hyper Knife was born.

Utilizing premium materials and a finely-tuned process, every piece of the Archer is painstakingly crafted into a work of machined art. Emphasis was placed on finishing, with no expense spared. The Archer represents a Tactile product through and through – made entirely in house by our talented team and quality you can feel.

The first limited production batch will be available for purchase December 14, 2023. Subsequent drops including numerous design variants will be communicated exclusively via our email list and Instagram account (@TactileKnifeCo).

In the modern age of knife making many companies have transitioned from stones & files to CNC machines , allowing them to craft and contour components with extreme precision. A "Hyper Knife" pushes the boundaries of these abilities and then flexes on top of that – adding fine details to put them on the top of the proverbial knife food chain.


TJ is a prolific designer from Boise, Idaho who's worked with many powerhouse knife brands. Even if you haven't heard of him, you've probably seen his designs at many brick and mortar stores. To learn more, we highly recommend the Edge & Flow Podcast TJ cohosts with Lucas Burnley where they explore the knife industry, craftsmanship, business, creativity, and beyond.


Headquartered in Dallas, TX, Tactile Knife Co. consists of an expansive machine shop and team of talented craftspeople passionate about quality, durable products. Everything we sell comes with a Lifetime Warranty and, unlike many other production knife companies, we strive to manufacture everything we can in house (even down the screws). Though still in our early days, we thankfully had a massive leg up thanks to the success of our machined pen brand, Tactile Turn.
