ADVIMPIWHG10: Damascus Impi Slipjoint, Engraved White G10
Andre De Villiers Knives

The Pocket Butcher was the first Andre De Villiers folder to utilize a traditional slipjoint mechanism and now the Impi is the second. Many people throughout the world are restricted when it comes to their everyday carry folding knife choice, living in countries that don't allow locking or one-hand opening designs. Others just want a knife with more classic styling yet built along the lines that have made ADV knives so popular around the world. Well, Andre now has the knife for you in the Impi, a Pocket Butcher with a spear point blade and a very stout slipjoint mechanism.

It is roughly the same size and shape as the Mini Tac Butcher yet is stylish in its own unique way. The 3" spear point blade is made from VG-10 damascus steel with a blood groove to aid in the opening, no half-stop safety, and a script de Villiers logo. The handles are made from polished G10 inlaid into brushed stainless steel frames with a steel back spring for a very solid feel. It takes a large amount of force to close the blade so you can perform heavy duty cutting tasks with this sturdy design. The index finger groove and tapered shape of the handle make for a very comfortable hand feel during use and it includes a lanyard hole integrated into the backspacer and a nylon carry pouch. If you've been looking for an overbuilt non-locking knife that is different that the Pocket Butcher from ADV, the Impi is your blade.
