Andre De Villiers Knives
 
The Pathfinder is another mid-tech design from Andre De Villiers that is a serious tactical folder. It's smooth, fast, sharp, and stout - really everything one looks for in a tactical blade. The Pathfinder has a 3.75" Drop Point blade made from the excellent S35VN stainless steel, with a tactical blackwashed finish. The handle is Titanium with the same blackwashed finish with skeletonized holes to add grip and reduce weight. They are produced in small batches which is what makes this knife a mid-tech instead of a full on custom knife where each handle is made specifically for each knife. 

The Titanium lock has a lockbar stabilizer/over travel mechanism similar to the Hinderer Lockbar Stabilizer. The pivot point 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. That action is very smooth to say the least. Jimping on the flipper tang and thumb ramp are sharp and functional, really nothing was overlooked on this awesome design. There's even a small run of jimping on the deep carry clip to assist you in drawing it from the pocket. The pocket clip on the Pathfinder has also been redesigned to allow for better retention in thick pant pockets. 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.
