JVMINST32: Custom 3" Instigator #32

VanderMeulen Bladeworks

The Instigator is one of Jeff VanderMeulen's signature designs and this is the 32nd 3" model that he has built. It's the knife you'll currently find Jeff carrying in this exact size as his everyday carry. It's like a mini pocket Persian knife with a classy look and a surprising amount of cutting power. The compound ground blade is made from RWL-34 stainless steel with a hand-rubbed satin finish. The handle is full titanium with nice contouring and milled holes for weight reduction. The right-hand, tip-up mokuti clip has a little space between it and the titanim scale allowing you to clip it onto your pants more easily. If it were flush against the frame, the tension would be too strong to insert and remove it from your pocket with relative ease. It shows Jeff's attention to detail and the complete knowledge he has about his designs. He even includes his maker's mark, the model name, serial number, and manufacturing date on the inside of the presentation scale to show that this knife is the real deal. It utilizes a bearing system for extremely smooth action and all components of this knife are fastened using one-sized Torx screws for easy adjustment. This is one awesome knife that will provide you with a sense of certainty and confidence that it can get the job done.
