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 is clearly a maker to keep an eye on!
This framelock front flipper is an extremely practical, yet elegant EDC -- designed for daily carry and daily use. Weighing in at just 2-1/2 oz, it is easy to keep close at hand and not even notice it is in your pocket. This special EDC framelock includes some important upgrades such as the addition of IKBS ball bearings and a 3D machined black titanium frame and pocket clip.
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 blade is hand ground 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. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. By differentially polishing the blade, JD emphasizes his clean grinds.
The frame is contoured and 3D textured blackened titanium. Turbo cut anodized titanium pivot collars add just the right amount of pop. A carbon fiber backspacer keeps the knife strong yet light. The ergonomic handle and jimping along the spine provide a solid, secure grip. The blackened 3D machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
