The stylish and simple gentleman’s knife is a staple of the everyday carry world. But traditional versions — those with manual two-handed deployments, like a nail nick — make them somewhat cumbersome for quick access and on-the-spot usage. Unsurprisingly, the folks at The James Brand have taken on and conquered this issue with relative ease, creating a modern version of the gentleman’s knife they’ve dubbed The Duval.

Available in three different versions, each more beautiful than the last, there’s no question that this gorgeous folding blade sits at the upper echelon of its category. And while its clean lines and striking silhouette are a major plus, it’s the mechanical details that have us sold. You see, this is The James Brand’s first front-flipper — meaning it can be opened swiftly with one hand with the tab at the opposite end of the blade and a silky-smooth ceramic ball-bearing in the pivot. And while it has handsome and grippy handle scales in your choice of rosewood, Micarta, or titanium, they also hideaway a sturdy titanium frame and a frame lock for added security in use. Furthermore, the modified sheepsfoot blade is crafted from American-made S35VN high-end steel in the rosewood and Micarta version and drop-dead gorgeous Damasteel in the all-titanium handled option. Get your hands on this 6.4″ masterpiece now starting at $275.

Purchase: $275
