The Duval

Rated 4.8 out of 5
Based on 49 reviews

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.

Beautiful Knife. The perfect pocket knife.

Beautifully made. Perfect size. Super sharp. My first James Brand knife did not disappoint. Comes in a nice box as well.

Love it but…

I love the idea and the design. Unfortunately, the rosewood is cracked. I still love it and carry it but just a little disappointed. Im sure it is isolated and their quality overall is usually top notch.

Knife with attitude

Very well made knife! Clear and balanced design. It comes extremely sharp from the box. At first it will be hard to flip, but when You learn how to do it correctly, it will add even more individuality to this practical piece of art!

I am not a "knife guy".

So, I have owned a few knives here and there over the years. Some of the less expensive, but better known names. Then a friend turned me onto TJB by showing off his Carter. I was intrigued so, I obviously went to the site and started browsing. My design lust landed me on the Duval page and I immediately looked at the price and left the page. I'd peaked back at it every few months when a knife was mentioned and I came close to adding it to my cart a couple times. Then a "big" birthday of mine recently came and went. I felt a little cheated because no one bought me anything special. Therefore I navigated back to TJB and ordered myself a Titanium and Damasteel Duval. I could not be anymore pleased with this work of art as a "Not a knife guy". There's not a flaw on it. no gaps, no looseness, no tool marks. The blade sits symmetrically in the frame when closed (I am OCD about symmetry). I am a little hesitant to EDC it because of the cost, but I am going to anyhow. I know a clip would ruin the aesthetic but I kind of wish it had one. That's the most minuscule con I could muster. I think this will put me on the path of knifeguyism as I have my eye on a few more models.
