Description: 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 Frame Lock Flipper is a thin, lightweight, mid-size knife designed for everyday carry. At just 3 oz, 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 ambidextrous flipper toggle. Disengage the lock and the blade falls shut effortlessly thanks to the ball bearing system.
The drop point blade is 1095 carbon steel with a cold gun blued finish. 1095 has exceptional toughness and edge holding, though less corrosion resistance. JD's mark is on the left side of the blade. Jimping on the spine provides excellent traction. Because the blade is made from carbon steel we recommend camellia oil to prevent rust.
The darkened titanium frame lock surrounds a carbon fiber backbar keeping the knife extremely light yet strong. An internal pin prevents accidental lockbar over-travel when disengaging the lock. A fluted titanium pivot collar surrounds the heat colored pivot on the show side. Screw hardware throughout is heat colored to match. The 3D machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
