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.
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
seems to be very tight and I will continue to exercise it everyday in hopes of breaking it in... plenty of lube applied. Still have to use two hands for operation. All materials are beautiful and the design of the knife is impeccable. Maybe a bit pricey...
I know this knife could be something to pass down generations. Well designed and beautiful.
I love it! The only problem I have is it is a little weird to open but other than that it is a great knife that I would recommend to anyone.
the damascus duval is simply art! love it!
