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. 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 Pinstripe Flipper is an extremely practical EDC -- designed for daily carry and daily use. Weighing in at just 2.2 oz, it is easy to keep close at hand and not even notice it is in your pocket. The flipper mechanism is easy to operate. The blade is perfectly centered with smooth drop shut action and easily flicks out.
The blade is formed from N690 stainless 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. It is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Handle scales are formed from silver strike carbon fiber. Aluminum wires move through the carbon strands. Titanium liners are anodized blue. The thin-profiled handle is compact enough to keep in the pocket and never notice it until it is needed. A zirconium pivot collar surrounds the pivot. The cracked ice finished, deep carry anodized titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
