Description: JD van Deventer creates unique knives of the highest degree of craftsmanship. He took up knife making in 2005 and became a member of the Knifemaker’s Guild of Southern Africa by 2007.

This framelock front flipper is an extremely practical, yet elegant EDC -- designed for daily carry and daily use. Weighing in at just over 2-1/2 oz, it is easy to keep close at hand and not even notice it is in your pocket. The blade is well centered with smooth action and is easy to open and close with one hand. The gent's front flipper mechanism is designed to be an easy single handed open by rotating with the thumb. The grind and clip are stonewashed. The flats are polished.
The blade is formed from N690 stainless steel, a steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The front scale is formed from black G-10. It has been meticulously inlaid with blue/black lightning strike carbon fiber. Copper wires travel through the woven carbon strands. The back frame is formed from stonewashed titanium. A G-10 backbar keeps the knife rigid, yet light. The thin-profiled handle is compact enough to keep in the pocket and never notice it until it is needed. The pierced, deep-carry titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-down carry.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
