DRDOM35RETDUAL: Dominator 35 Folding Knife, Dual Finished

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.

Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
S35VN 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.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock 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.
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.
