ADVMPKTBUTBWDAM: Damascus Mini Pocket Butcher Slipjoint, Burl Wood
Andre De Villiers Knives
The Pocket Butcher is the first Andre De Villiers folder to utilize a traditional slipjoint mechanism. 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 Mini Pocket Butcher, a two-hand opening design with a very stout slipjoint mechanism.
It is roughly 3/4 the size of the Mini Tac Butcher yet is stylish in its own unique way. The 2.125" Wharncliffe blade is made from VG-10 Damascus with a blood groove to aid in the opening, no half-stop safety, and a script De Villiers logo. The three-finger handle is made from beautiful burl wood inlaid into brushed stainless steel frames with a steel back spring for a very solid feel. It takes a decent 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 a stylish yet durable non-locking knife, you've found it in the Mini Pocket Butcher from ADV.
