Definitely not a flipper and it does not go all the way through the blade tang. I'm mainly curious because mine has started to rattle. It's fit into only one side of the liner.

I’m not understanding. What doesn’t go all the way through the blade tang? Which parts (“it” and “tang”) are you referring to?

And what is fit into only one side of the liner? I’m just not comprehending what you mean. Photos?

There is a pin that fits into the liner, non-lock side. There is a channel milled into the blade that looks like how a Southard blade is milled, but not all the way through. If you look between the scales straight down the long axis of the handle, right next to the pivot, you will see it. I'll try to find the video of a disassembly.

I’ll jump in to say that I love my Rhino. I bought it on impulse and it’s become one of my most carred knives over the last w 2 months. It took about 2 weeks to break in but now it flips and closes great.

I used the heck out of it during a large woodworking project. It’s great for detail cutting.

I only wish it had a wire clip.

I thought that about the clip initially but I now basically forget it is there when I’m using it. I am sure if I took it off, which I tend to do with small knives, I would certainly feel a difference.
