ADVMEGABUTBW: Black Stonewash Mega Butcher
Andre De Villiers Knives
 
The Butcher is mid-tech design from Andre De Villiers that is one serious folder. Now it's available in a tactical Mega model for those who think a 3.75" blade isn't quite large enough to get the job done. This larger model is still smooth, fast, sharp, and stout - really everything one looks for in a tactical blade. The Mega Butcher has a 4.5" wharncliffe blade made from the excellent S35VN stainless steel, with a tactical black stonewash finish. Andre added a thumb disk, which you can use to open the blade instead of the flipper and there is a swedge added to the blade for better piercing cuts. The handle is titanium with the same black stonewash finish. 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 lockbar stabilizer that Rick Hinderer uses. 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 is sharp and functional; really nothing was overlooked on this awesome design. Andre put in a large cutout relief to make closing the knife easier and has incorporated a replaceable lockbar insert. There's even a small run of jimping on the deep carry clip to assist you in drawing it from the pocket. The pocketclip on this Mega Butcher 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.

Semi-Custom
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.
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.
Pocket Clip

Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
S35VN
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.
Titanium Handles

A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.

Over built orneriness
In being fascinated by the ever growing concept of the over built tactical folder, I bought my Mega Butcher.....wow....what a beautiful specimen of that type. A chunk at over seven ounces, and hand filling(I wear an xl glove)with its titanium scales, this thing means business. Fit an finish are superb. A top notch defensive/utilitarian design. My only con is the pocket clip....I'm a lefty and would have loved to have seen that as an option. Clip is righty only. I will edc this knife for a bit, just to get a better feel for it, and will addendum this review.
