The Modern Gentlemen's Knife
The Duval is our first front-flipper, combining the best features of two classic knife silhouettes into a sleek and functional new form. Traditional gentlemen's knives require two hands to open and close, and they don't generally lock. With its front-flipper opening style and it's frame-lock design, you get the best of both worlds: the ease of opening and security of a traditional frame-lock knife, combined with slimness, symmetry and beauty of a classic gentlemen's pocket knife.
Great knife amazing service
Forget about knives for a minute—The James Brand customer service is absolutely “world class”, and so rare these days! Huge thanks to Julian for the service! Now onto the knife- it’s beautiful, certainly the finest gentleman’s knife on the market. I swapped out the paracord for leather which I believe makes it look perfect. This knife gets a compliment every time anyone sees it. I don’t know much about knives but it’s razor sharp and it’s been holding it’s edge with frequent use on packaging. Again, thank you Julian—I love my Duval knife!
Perfect knife for me
This knife takes a week or three to break in. Once it does it’s awesome. I have collected knives all my life and this one is functional but also different from the norm. I’m happy I stumbled upon it and this brand.
James Brand Experience!!!
I have had my Knife the Duval for several days now! I’m very satisfied with the product so far and am looking forward to really putting it to the edc test! The entire experience has been satisfying! Shipped quick and was in my pocket before I knew it!
A well made knife! I love the feel and balance.
I really like to fit and finish but I really don't understand the positioning of the front flipper tab it makes for a very awkward deployment and just wasn't really thought through maybe, almost makes the knife a two handed knife.. not ideal
