The Modern Pocket 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.
Best knife ever
This is my favorite knife, hands down. It’s super light weight in the pocket and the flip mechanism is fast and easy. If you are looking for a pocket knife that doesn’t look like everyone else’s, this is the one.
The Duval....Videos Please!!!
I am thinking of buying The Duval (in Ti/Damasteel or S35VN/Micarta) but I can't find a single video of this knife online. I'd love a full in-depth review, see it in hand and in action and be informed before plopping down $375 for another knife I "might" love! This is a request to each of you who have purchased one to PLEASE...thow a video up on YouTube for the rest of us. Wishing you all many years of edgy enjoyment with your James Brand knives. Thank you!

Let me see if we can get this into the hands of some of the reviewer community!
Like most reviews, learning to open the blade one-handed takes some getting used to but is not hard at all. The damasteel blade is elegant and insanely sharp and the titanium handle is the perfect weight. However, I did expect the entire knife as a whole to be lighter but that was basing it on a fully titanium watch I own. The product is still light and very comfortable to have in your pocket and seems exceptionally durable. I carry a brass embassy tactical pen in the same pocket as well and some of the brass rubbed off on the duval's titanium handle. However, it was purely cosmetic and rubbed right off. I expect this knife to last for decades and would definitely recommend it as it is a head turner and awesome product.
Nothing but smoothness and sharpness
smooth action and sharp blade. what more is there you need? well the quality of the metal and build is probably what makes this blade special.
One of the most beautiful knife I have in my collection, congrats! Would definitely deserve a bigger size.
Congrats to the James Brand team
