Jesper Voxnaes is a bona fide master of the EDC knife. His designs are world renowned for their clean aesthetic, comfortable ergonomics, and utility. Blade HQ has partnered with Jesper and Fox Knives of Italy to bring you The Dapper Collection with two new variations! This is a Blade HQ Exclusive!
The Dapper is the perfect size for EDC. It has a reversible, deep-carry, wire pocket clip, and is small and slim in the pocket. When in use, the contoured handle fills the hand comfortably, and the middle finger falls perfectly into the finger groove. The knife opens smoothly with a flipper, and the flipper tab conceals itself in the handle when open. The Dapper has a snappy lock that is addictive when opening and closing. This blade design has a sweeping belly, and a gentle clip point shape with a crowned spine.

So, while I was contemplating on whether to get one of the micarta versions, both sold out, followed shortly after by the carbon-fiber variant. I ended up with the titanium. Feels nice in the hand. A bit smaller than I usually like my knives, but not bad at all. Has good weight to the knife. Love how the flipper is hidden when the knife is hope. Also love the BladeHQ logo on the blade and the zipper case. The blade flips with authority, although the effort to free the blade is more than I would like. I know how to adjust this. The jimping is good but not too aggressive. That is, it doesn't tear up your fingers. Workmanship is excellent. No breaking-in period is necessary.
I wanted to buy the carbon fiber version of this knife, but I waited until I was out of work and it was sold out. This one is a gram heavier but is still light enough to not notice it in the pocket. Pros: small and compact, m390 steel, good pocket clip, flipper tab does not stick out from the knife very far, thin blade stock, good ergonomics, Jesper Voxnaes design, solid detent, good jimping for thumb gives good control Cons: flipper tab can be rough on the finger to fidget with at first, not good for bigger hands, index finger is close to the blade when using knife Overall Jesper Voxnaes consistently designs great knives and that's why they sold out in one day without anyone needing to see any reviews before purchasing.
Darkwashed titanium and bronzed backspacer all good. Good edc size and four finger grip. Good bearings action but small flipper tab. Centering a bit off. Uneven blade edge. Uneven blade at the tip is clearly visible when closed. Recommend it.
This knife is designed really great but there are some execution issues that pop up. Ergos are really great. I love how the middle finger slips into the choil and you get a really full purchase on the knife. Blade shape is well designed for EDC. I've heard concerns that the liner lock doesn't lock up all the way but that's not an issue with mine. If you are looking from the front it is a little concerning but peeking through the back it locks up fine. The issue I see is with a pretty uneven blade grind. Looking at the tip of the knife it looks like two completely separate angles were used to grind the bevel. There is also a weirdly shiny part on the pivot that doesn't match the rest of the finishes on the knife. Overall I like the knife but would like some QC improvements on it.
