ADVPBLBRW: Pocket Butcher Lockback - Rosewood

Andre De Villiers Knives

The Pocket Butcher was 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. When Andre introduced Pocket Butcher, a two-hand opening design with a very stout slipjoint mechanism, it was very warmly received but left some people searching for more. People wanted this same exact design with the security of a lockback. Enter the Pocket Butcher Lockback.

It is roughly the same size and shape as the Mini Tac Butcher yet is stylish in its own unique way. The Wharncliffe blade is made from N690 stainless steel with a blood groove to aid in the opening, buttery-smooth action, and a script De Villiers logo. The smooth action is definitely surprising for a lockback design but not unwelcome in this knife; it's one of our favorite features. The handles are made from beautiful rosewood and brass inlaid into brushed stainless steel frames with a steel back spring for a very solid feel. 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 yet compact locking knife, you've found it in the Pocket Butcher from ADV.

Wood Handles
Wood Handles Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
Semi-Custom 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.
Lockback The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.
