Darrel Ralph Designs
Darrel Ralph of DDR is one of the best in the industry and it's a pleasure for us to be able to offer his products to you. The Dominator was designed way back in 2002 by Darrel Ralph for Camillus Knives. Camillus brought out a limited run of the Dominator and Darrel did not make a custom version of the knife until a few years ago. That 3.75" model was tactical, practical, utterly well-built, and one amazing flipper—quickly becoming one of Darrel's best selling custom knives of all time. However, it was too large for some, leading Darrel and his son Ian to come up with the idea of a more carriable, more affordable model, thus the Dominator 35 was born.

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. It's built with the same level of quality and materials as previous custom Dominators, yet the price on this knife will compete with all the best mid-techs on the market. Every aspect is manufactured and tuned in Darrel's Texas shop. The lack of internal machining to the handles and basic designs to the pocket clip and backspacer have led to such a competitive price point. We view it as a great tactical or everyday carry alternative to a Sebenza, Strider, or Hinderer, as it flips better than all of them, uses the exact same materials, and is also 100% American made. We think Darrel has an absolute winner with this Dominator 35 model and that you cannot go wrong in choosing it as your next knife.

Pocket Clip

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 Patriotic Dominator!
I purchased this Daryl Ralph Design a couple of months ago and have been very pleased with the workmanship and performance of it. I carried every day for a couple of weeks then went to my next in line as I usually do after that amount of time.This one is just a little on the heavy side (5 oz.) but I tend to lean on my early days of always preferring a bit of heft to my carry knives; and the 'oohs and ahhs' I got from those who saw it was worth it, besides after a couple of days I failed to take notice.It's a "Dominator" dressed up like an American Patriot, and since I am former Navy Special Warfare (UDT), and as a Disabled American Veteran I do tend to be on the Patriotic side of the fence (a little to the 'Right' of Attila the Hun') you might say.This knife is a thing of beauty to me, and it carries this image through in its creamy smooth opening; it actually 'glides' open. A true showpiece as far as I'm concerned with a fantastically colored laser-etched scales and a small etched American flag on the blade itself. It is one of those knives where a picture just doesn't do it justice. However, it does take a little time to keep it polished and shined up, as it should, but isn't that part of the fun of collecting our knives anyway? Oh, it also sports a pocket-friendly clip that won't wear out your jeans!
