ADVTBDGTSCF: Tac Butcher DG Folding Knife, Turquoise Shred Carbon Fiber
Andre De Villiers Knives

The Butcher is a mid-tech design from Andre De Villiers that is one serious folder. Now it's available in a Tactical model with some added and upgraded features. It's still smooth, fast, sharp, and stout - really everything one looks for in a tactical blade. This Tac Butcher has a longer 4" Sheepsfoot blade made from Bohler M390 stainless steel with a black stonewashed finish. The larger handle, made from chevron milled titanium, gives the user more real estate to grip - perfect for gloved or larger size hands. Turquoise shred carbon fiber inlays on the handle and backspacer helps set this knife apart from lesser models.

Andre did away with the ambidextrous thumb disk and swedge from previous models as well as removed the lockbar stabilizer that Rick Hinderer uses in favor of a replaceable lockbar insert that doubles as an overtravel arrestor. A redesigned milled titanium pocket clip is the final addition Andre went with on this Tac Butcher, a big improvement over the spring clip design. Every other aspect that made the Butcher so popular including the flipping action and overbuilt toughness is retained, which makes this knife a perfect choice for your next deployment or night out on the town.

The pivot point is what sets this knife apart from all 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 tang 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 the ergonomics are spot on. This may not be your typical looking knife, but get it in your hand and you'll definitely warm up to the design thanks to all the great features it has and the fact that the action is on par with even the best flipping designs.
