ADVPKTBUTRWCU: Pocket Butcher Slipjoint, Rosewood and Copper
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 Pocket Butcher, a two-hand opening design with 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" Wharncliffe blade is made from D2 tool steel with a blood groove to aid in the opening and a script De Villiers logo. The handles are made from beautiful rosewood and copper inlaid into brushed stainless steel frames with a steel back spring for a very solid feel. The addition of a brass shield on the inlay indicates that this model includes a half-stop safety feature. 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, you've found it in the Pocket Butcher from ADV.
