DRCDOMV4YEL: Custom Dominator V4, Yellow #1
Darrel Ralph Designs
Darrel Ralph is one of the best in the industry and it's a pleasure for us to be able to offer his products to you. This is a design that has never before been offered as a custom knife and it's absolutely amazing. The Dominator was designed way back in 2002 for Camillus Knives. They brought out a limited run of this knife at that time and DDR did not make a custom version of the knife, until now. This model, numbered V4 #1 on the blade, means it is the fourth version of the Dominator and the first of its kind in this configuration. This sturdy, frame lock flipper features Darrel's famous Maxx Glide Pivot Bearing System and a detent that is second to none. This creates a flipping action so near perfect that you will measure the number of times you open and close this in the thousands not hundreds.
This Version 4 model has all the same features as previous iterations, plus the added bonus of a redesigned replaceable steel lockbar insert and improved overall tolerances. The compound ground 3.625" blade is made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with acid washed bevels and satin flats. It measures 0.179" thick but is thin enough at the edge that we know this knife will be an excellent slicer. The handle and pocket clip are made from 6Al4V aircraft grade titanium with a yellow anodized finish on the edges and inside the milling pattern. With input from Jim Skelton, Darrel lightened up the lockbar tension to make unlocking the knife easier without affecting the lockup. It is solid, locks up like a bank vault and is a completely flow-through design. It's the safe queen piece you will want to carry again and again.

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
Custom knives are hand made in shops around the world. These will typically be extremely high quality and one of a kind pieces meticulously built by the craftsman.
This product is USA born and raised.
