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

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.

Nice

Overall I am pleased with the knife. The fit and finish is nice and the blade was reasonably sharp. The front flipper is a little hard on the fingers but that could be from to much fidgeting. I bought mine during a sale and was glad to pay close to $100 instead of $300

A little hard to open but can't complain at the sale price.

As some others pointed out, it is symmetric, and since it comes hard to open for me as a new knife, I had one time trying so hard to open it but then noticed it was the wrong direction. Otherwise, it is beautiful. Got it on sale, a really good deal and happy purchase for me.

Great Looking Knife

The Duval caught my eye as what I was looking far in a modern knife.

The difficulty of opening this knife with the small tab on the end means I won't be keeping the knife..
