Black Stonewash Tac Butcher Gen 3
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 model with some added and upgraded features. It’s still smooth, fast, sharp, and stout – really everything one looks for in a tactical blade. The Tac Butcher has a 3.75″ 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 the Tac 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.
