The custom Johann “JD” van Deventer EDC front flipper is a simple, elegantly executed daily carry cutting tool with exceptional visual appeal thanks to the subtly sweeping lines of the contoured handles and striking two-tone satin blade. A high hollow grind and IKBS bearing pivot provide utilitarian performance, making it a near perfect blend of form and function and a joy to use and carry.

Brand new, direct from JD Custom Knives, SA.

Blade: Perfectly sized for daily carry utility the drop point blade rides on an IKBS bearing pivot for smooth front flipper deployment at any speed. Polished flats and hand rubbed satin grinds deliver tailor made aesthetics while the high hollow grind offers up plenty of slicing performance. 

Handle: Made from texture milled titanium, the handles are simple, ergonomic and equipped with a dark matte finish. The rear frame forms an integral frame lock for safe use. Matching the titanium clip are concentric ring milled pivot collars for enhanced style. Ships in a zippered nylon pouch with Certificate of Authenticity.

Carries via a right hand, tip-up 3D titanium pocket clip.

Bohler N690: N690 is a high quality stainless steel, considered an upgrade to 440C. It has higher hardness and wear resistance for better edge retention while sacrificing some toughness. Corrosion resistance is high, at or better than VG-10. Easy to sharpen, this is a well-balanced steel for daily carry and use.
