Andre De Villiers Knives DF Pathfinder Flipper Knife 3.875" N690 Black Stonewashed Drop Point Blade and Milled Titanium Handles
ADVDFPATHDP: DF Double Flipper Pathfinder, Drop Point
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 DF Double Flipper Pathfinder is just the same but with a double guard for a unique tactical look. It has a 3.875" drop point blade made from N690 stainless steel with a black stonewashed finish. The handle is made from black stonewashed titanium with a small frag pattern milled into 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 DF Pathfinder 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!

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
N690 is an Austrian steel with adequate hardness and superb corrosion resistant properties. This a great steel for use around marine environments.
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
