ADVBEAST: Beast Flipper
Andre De Villiers Knives
 
The Beast is another awesome flipper from Andre De Villiers that has nearly effortless action. It's smooth, fast, sharp and stout--really everything one looks for in a tactical blade. The Beast has a 3.75" tanto blade made from excellent S35VN stainless steel, with a polished satin finish. The handle is made from milled titanium that is textured for extra grip support. Andre's knives have an unparalleled action to them which knife enthusiasts can't get enough of and this standard Beast model will be available exclusively through the KnifeCenter.

The titanium lock has an integral lockbar insert/over-travel mechanism that provides solid lockup while being very easy to disengage. The pivot point, though, 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. The action is very smooth to say the least. Jimping on the redesigned flipper tang and thumb ramp are sharp and functional--really nothing was overlooked on this awesome design. The milled titanium pocket clip on the Beast has also been redesigned to match the look of the handle and it secures the knife tightly in place. 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.

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.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
A Stylish Tanto
Powerful EDC ideal for self defense. Strongly built both for the blade and handle. Sharp out of the box. Pocket clip is a design too, a bid too rigid but perhaps due to its weight.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
I loved this knife at first glance. I ended up loving it even more when I got it in hand. It is, in fact, a BEAST of a knife although not cumbersome to the least bit uncomfortable in the slightest. It's very very comfortable in most any grip and that blade... THAT BLADE! The grind is so amazing. Great for thrust punctures, perfect for heavy slicing and that angle on the "belly" is wonderful for precision cuts. Its Beastly-ness allows it to pry without pause as well. I HIGHLY recommend this knife and all ADV products are top-notch!
