ADV Tactical

I am Andre de Villiers, founder of ADV Tactical. Full time knife maker since 1990.

I make handmade folders and a line of SOB mid-tech flippers. My designs are my own, built to perform, super tough, with extreme function and purpose.

I use the best materials I can get – Titanium, D2, S35vn, N690 and others.

We offer knife customization and custom laser art on all of our models to best suit your EDC or collection requirements.

Please DM us on Instagram or Facebook for a live chat before placing an order to ensure that we have the necessary stock available.

  4. Andre De Villiers ADV - Kudu Hunter Fixed - M390 & Black G10 - knife

    The Kudu Hunter fixed-blade knife offers an excellent balance between form and function: the wide drop point blade is reminiscent of its predecessor model Harpoon, but without the dedicated thumb rest. The handle is extremely comfortable for different types of grips, and its shape does not cause fatigue during long periods of use. The Kydex scabbard has a Kydex belt loop that allows you to switch between normal belt carry and scout carry, right or left handed, with ease. This is truly an excellent "all-around" design by Andre.

    Type of manufacture: midtech
    Country of manufacture: South Africa
    Blade: full tang, stainless steel M390
