My Grail Knife and now it is mine!

Andre De Villiers Knives Ronin Integral Flipper Knife 4″ S35VN Black Nitride Tanto Blade, Titanium Handle Custom, with Carbon Fibre inlay.

The Ronin Integral by Andre De Villiers is a sensational tactical folding knife and a great value for what it is. With impressive S35VN stainless from Crucible, you have top-of-the-line steel and a sharp flat ground tanto blade. The squared-off jimping on the thumb ramp is unobtrusive yet highly functional and really gives this knife a solid, sure grip. The wicked blade flies open using the flipper tab and the frame lock is easy to disengage. The integral titanium handle is very ergonomic with milled patches to accentuate the grip and carbon fibre inlay to match the Nitride blade finish.

The titanium lock has an integral lockbar insert/overtravel mechanism that provides solid lockup while being very easy to disengage. The action is very smooth, to say the least, and the jimping on the flipper tang provides excellent purchase. 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.

South African custom tactical creator Andre De Villers
Andre De Villers — is a knifemaker with a recognizable design style from South Africa, founder, and owner of ADV Tactical. From the name of his company, it follows that Andre specializes in large tactical knives, weighty folders, and fixed blade knives.

The Ronin and DF Frag flippers with the Clip-Point profile have proven themselves well. Tactical multitools are also very popular. They and the tactical bottle opener, made in the form of a Spartan helmet, can be used as knuckles in self-defense. The new Scavenger folder is interesting for its design. The handle of it repeats the bones of the spine. Death has always inspired De Villers.

Today Andre de Villiers is one of the most famous knifemakers in Africa and a member of the South African Knife Guild. The master describes his knives as super tough with extreme functions. Andre guarantees the quality of the ADV tacticals, insists on their practical application, but does not forget about the attractive design. As you know, beauty must save the world.

    NOICE!!! Damn that’s small for a ADV!

  20. Giant Fatberg on March 4, 2023 at 2:59 am

    Also Sprach Zarathustra from 2001 Space Odyssey would be fitting music. Maybe a little overused and cliche but highly appropriate in this case

  21. David Kurle on March 4, 2023 at 3:00 am

    Glad you got your hands on that one, buddy!

  22. Pieter Meyer on March 4, 2023 at 3:04 am

    Geniet hom!

  23. BassAssassinnn on March 4, 2023 at 3:06 am

    I know that’s an expensive knife, but I can’t help think what the designer was thinking when they made it. Looks like a souped up gas station knife. I do love integrals though.

  24. Michael Voorhees on March 4, 2023 at 3:06 am

    Like she said, that thing is huge

  25. Chilly Mike Tube on March 4, 2023 at 3:07 am

    You’d prefer that to a Microtech SOCOM Elite or Bravo? I gotta look ADV up.

  26. ShadowCast YT on March 4, 2023 at 3:07 am

    Dope, I acquired one of my “small grails” being the Chris Reeve Sebenza recently, really want a Shirogorov F3 NS, my mega grail, also want a Slysz Bowie, but that’s a hard one to track down
