Description: This is JD van Deventer's new Iridium Bolster Lock Flipper model.
JD van Deventer creates unique knives of the highest degree of craftsmanship and performance. 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!
The Iridium Bolster Lock Flipper is a thin, lightweight, mid-size knife designed for everyday carry. At just 2.8oz, it disappears in the pocket, yet it is robust enough to take on most any task.
The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous front flipper toggle. It uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The drop point blade is formed from S35VN stainless steel. S35VN has tremendous wear resistance coupled with high corrosion resistance and ensures a superior, high performing edge. A hand rubbed satin finish adds to the heirloom appearance.
Perfectly balanced, the Iridium Bolster Lock Flipper features a stonewash titanium frame paired with Blue Dark Matter FatCarbon inlays. A blackwood carbon fiber backspacer keeps the knife light, yet fast. A terraced, anodized titanium pivot collar highlights blue tones in the Dark Matter FatCarbon. Meticulously shaped, it fills your hand for a confident grip without any hot spots -- making it ideal for extended use around the house, office, or worksite. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Handmade in South Africa. Exceptional work throughout!
