Brand new direct from the man himself, Andre de Villiers we have this beefed-up ADV Tactical Trailboss Flipper! Andre has upgraded this beast with custom features such as Lightning Strike carbon fiber and Bronze/Gold anodized Titanium hardware. Very cool accents throughout this piece that make it special.
The Blade: An addition you won't find on the standard Trailboss is the bronze anodized titanium thumb disk on the blade's spine. It's oversized, to fit the knife, and has nice texturing to fire the blade out. This adds a secondary opening option to the integral flipper. This big, wide drop point is right around 3.75 inches in edge length and runs on roller bearings. These roller bearings are said to be much stronger than traditional ball bearings. Andre has done extensive testing of pivot systems and I think he's on to something. This blade just absolutely flies out of the handle with an audible "thwack" lock up that will put a smile on your face. Full flat grind here for no-drag cutting.
The Handle: Standard "V-Milled" Trailboss titanium handle slabs here with satin/bead blast finishes and upgraded lightning strike carbon fiber scale on the front. This very cool carbon fiber has strands of copper wire running through it matching the bronze anodized accents. A V-milled chevron-styled pattern appears on the back coupled with notching on the spine add a nice grip. The lockbar has a steel lockface attached with bronze titanium screws that also works as an internal lockbar stabilizer. Comfortable edges and just an overall powerful feeling in-hand.
This lightning Trailboss is badass down to every little detail. The tip-up titanium pocket clip has bronze accenting its satin finish that's just killer. A titanium back spacer that extends past the handle rounds out this package. Item ships in a zipper pouch.
