The Modern Pocket Knife

The Duval is our first front-flipper, combining the best features of two classic knife silhouettes into a sleek and functional new form. Traditional gentlemen's knives require two hands to open and close, and they don't generally lock. With its front-flipper opening style and it's frame-lock design, you get the best of both worlds: the ease of opening and security of a traditional frame-lock knife, combined with slimness, symmetry and beauty of a classic gentlemen's pocket knife.

THE MODERN GENTLEMEN'S POCKET KNIFE


duval sketch

The Best in Materials and Design.

The Duval uses American-made Crucible s35vn stainless blade steel, and has a frame of 6al4v titanium. The modified sheepsfoot blade shape is as useful as it is beautiful. The main pivot uses ceramic ball bearings for an incredibly smooth action. Scale options include rosewood and OD green micarta.

With the Duval we took cues from mid-century design and combined them with the very best materials to create a modern-day gentlemen's pocket knife that has all of the features of a traditional frame-lock design.

Front-flipper open style.

A deal

I watched this knife for a while, snatched it up when the price dropped with a new model. I agree with other reviews that one hand opening is a little difficult, but otherwise I like the blade, heft, and grip of this knife. I have the green micarda.

Christmas Gift

I received this pocket knife for Christmas from my wife. I love the sleek style with a great grip. Carry all day, compact, light and sharp. I bought one for my son’s birthday!

Great Knife

I bought the titanium/ damasteel that I had been eyeing for a while now. Knife is not only razor sharp it is sharp looking. Add in the sleekness and lightweight, the duval is going to be a great EDC. It's a little stiff one- handed opening; However, I think that will ease as it is broken in. James Brand even sent a handwritten Thank you note, which was a nice simple gesture. Seems like a great company with solid products. I will definitely purchase from them again.
