Andre De Villiers Knives Customized Pathfinder Gen 2 Flipper 3.875" Black D2 Drop Point Blade and Milled Titanium Handles
ADVCPATHSQBK: Customized Pathfinder Gen 2, Black Square Pattern
Andre De Villiers Knives
The Pathfinder was an awesome design from Andre De Villiers and one serious tactical folder. It was smooth, fast, sharp, and stout—really everything one looked for in a tactical blade. The Pathfinder Gen 2 is just the same but with minor refinements for a supremely smooth flipping and looking design. It has a 3.875" drop point blade made from CPM-D2 tool steel with a black Cerakote finish. The handle is made from green Cerakoted titanium with a square pattern milled in on each side to provide additional traction for your fingers. The design is set off by heavy jimping on the thumb ramp and backspacer which gives you amazing purchase no matter your grip on the knife.
The pivot point is what sets this knife, and all ADV blades, apart from the others. It has an inset Torx screw that fits inside the pivot, allowing you to tighten down the pivot while adjusting the centering or overall smoothness of the action. That action is very smooth, to say the least. Jimping on the flipper tab is sharp and functional; really nothing was overlooked in this awesome design. Andre put in a large cutout relief to make closing the knife easier and has a replaceable lockbar insert that doubles as an overtravel arrestor. The right-hand, tip-up milled titanium pocket clip on the Pathfinder Gen 2 incorporates the rolling ball design for an easier draw. This is an awesome design and has quickly become one of our favorite ADV knives, get one while you can!
