Description: JD van Deventer creates unique knives of the highest degree of craftsmanship and performance. He took up knifemaking in 2005 and became a member of the Knifemaker’s Guild of Southern Africa by 2007. He works in a one man shop and even builds most of his machines himself! He is clearly a maker to keep an eye on!
This frame lock folder is an extremely practical, yet elegant EDC -- designed for daily carry and daily use. Weighing in at just under 2-1/4 oz, it is easy to keep close at hand and not even notice it is in your pocket.
The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous front flipper toggle. This style of flipper is designed to be flicked out with your thumb or index finger. Washers provide smooth and easy-to-deploy action.
The blade is formed from N690 stainless steel, created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. By differentially polishing the blade, JD emphasizes his clean grinds.
The frame is formed from stonewashed blackened 6Al4V titanium with a carbon fiber front scale. The ergonomic handle and jimping along the spine provide a solid, secure grip. A carbon fiber backbar keeps the knife light and strong. The blackened 3D machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
