Description: The Butcher is a design from Andre De Villiers that is one serious folder! It's smooth, fast, sharp, and stout - really everything one looks for in a tactical blade. This Butcher Flipper was kept in a private collection since it was made back in 2019. It is in brand new condition and has never been carried or used in any way. By appearances, Andre could have made this knife yesterday!
The 4 inch blade is made from Bohler M390 stainless steel. M390 is a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it due to a high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powder metallurgical process also promotes a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties, making M390 a popular steel used in surgical cutting instruments and in applications requiring a high finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance due to its high concentration of chromium. The blade has been laser engraved to give it a unique, cool look.
Handle scales are made from differentially finished titanium and feature a thunderstorm Kevlar inlay on both sides of the knife. Matching laser engraved pivot collars surround the custom pivot. The scales surround a backbar made from thunderstorm Kevlar and titanium. A replaceable lockbar insert will allow the knife to have a solid lockup for generations to come. A lanyard can be added to the rear of the knife if desired. The model name, year the knife was made, and knife number is engraved onto the lockside scale. The laser engraved titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
