The Gold Midi was designed by Jared Van Otterloo (JVO). This mid size version of the Gold Standard has a 3.3 inch blade -- easily capable of getting any task done -- yet the compact size makes it tremendously carry friendly. The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous 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 raised clip point blade is formed from stainless damascus san mai. A central bar of Takefu SG2 powdered metallurgical stainless steel is surrounded by alternating layers of stainless steel and nickel. At Hrc 63-64, this folder has among the best edge holding of any knife van Deventer ever made. The resulting damascus is high contrast and immediately captivating. The linear damascus reveals Andre's complex, super-clean grind. The flats are mirror polished, nearly hiding the pattern. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The scales are formed from marbled carbon fiber. The zirconium bolster is inlaid with a two tiered pivot ring. Terraced titanium damascus is set on heat colored zirconium for a tremendous effect. Blue anodized titanium liners surround a carbon fiber back spacer. The 3D machined, anodized zirconium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
This is a knife you will want in your collection!
