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.
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
Everything you need, nothing you do not in a beautiful package
This is my second James Brand knife. The deployment mechanism certainly takes some getting used to, but serves as an ambidextrous method of opening. The deployment of the blade is snappy, and the S35VN steel is razor sharp. To top it all off, the frame is built tough and the rosewood scales are icing on the proverbial cake. The James Brand knocked it out of the park!
I got this knife for my husband for a wedding gift and he absolutely loves it. Its really beautiful and cuts easily .
