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.
Really Cool Pocket Knife
I love the size, perfect usable pocket knife, both blade length and handle size. I love the balance between pocket ability and usability. The blade steel is fantastic for everyday use and it came razor sharp, very happy. I LOVE the Micarta handles. I have a Hell Gap with olive Micarta and the matching of the two makes me so happy (please offer the Hell's Canyon in an olive Micarta handle!). My only knock on this is that the flipper action is BRUTALLY tough to start. Once it's off the bottom lock it's great. The body liner lock is fantastic and the smooth movement is great, but overcoming the closed lock with the flipper is tragic. Almost five stars for me. This knife is great, but for the price I'd want it to be perfect.
LOVE The James Brand and your products and I can't wait to find a reason to buy another knife from you!
Super sharp, easy to open, with a beautiful hand.
Great knife. Takes some getting used to flipping the blade open. Not intuitive one handed. Small knife I can keep in my pocket.
Love the knife it’s a little harder to open than I expected! Easier than my chapter knife which has cut my thumb twice when slipped of the thumb stud.
Classy. Sharp. Durable. Practical. Nice to hold and look at. Great in the pocket. Something I imagine passing to my son some day. Proudly.
Also, a man named Jillian made the purchase smooth. This added confidence to my purchase.
