After almost a decade of anticipation we present the Dauntless Dervish Mid Tech. John’s unique perspective yields knives with clean lines and distinct visual beauty. His take on our Dauntless is no different; this is classic Dervish at its best. Retaining all the classic Dauntless cues, John added an organic flow to the build that is unmistakably Dervish.
Starting with a liner lock build for symmetry and reliability, this Dauntless makes a subtle yet refined EDC that you won’t be afraid to put to work. The classic stonewash blade and OD green G10 handles offer the needed durability for a versatile EDC.
The familiar swedged drop point is made from CPM 20CV and is finished in a rich stonewash with substantial jimping on the spine. Heavily contoured G10 handles offer superior grip in this compact package. The titanium liner lock provides excellent lock up. Dual turned thumbstuds and caged bearings vigorously deploy the blade. The robust 3D titanium pocket clip has a durable stonewash finish and offers great retention in the pocket. John's hands-on approach to Mid Techs ensures a custom level fit.
The finishing touches on this Mid Tech include a titanium pivot and TAD logo opposite the Dervish logo on the blade.
Heavily chamfered handle with contoured G10 for deep positive grip and retention
