Andre De Villiers Knives
 
The Beast is another awesome folder 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 Prototype Beast has a 3.75" tanto blade made from excellent S35VN stainless steel, with a polished satin finish. The handle is milled titanium that is textured for extra grip support. Andre's knives have unparalleled action to them which knife enthusiast can't get enough of.

The titanium lock has a lockbar stabilizer/over-travel mechanism similar to the one Rick Hinderer uses. 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 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 Beast 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. Handle color may vary slightly from picture.
