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!
The Iridium Framelock 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 ATS-34 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. ATS-34 stainless steel is high in carbon and chromium giving excellent chip resistant, edge holding, and corrosion resistance. A hollow grind creates an easy to maintain edge.
The Iridium Framelock Flipper features a stonewashed titanium frame, paired with vintage emerald green inlay. A blackwood carbon fiber backspacer keeps the knife light, yet fast. An anodized titanium pivot collar highlights green tones in the Micarta. 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.
Exceptional work throughout!
