AKC F-16 D/A Dagger OTF Automatic Knife Orange (3.3" Satin)

  • Satin dagger blade made from 440A stainless steel.
  • Thumb slide opener that has a classic stiletto style.
  • Orange-coated aluminum handle with a grippy inlay.
  • Tip-down pocket clip for secure carry.


The AKC F-16 is an EDC-friendly, modern take on the classic stiletto. It is an automatic knife with double action, meaning that, by moving the thumb slide up and down, the blade automatically deploys and retracts. This makes it both easy to use with one hand and super fun to fidget with. It takes stylistic queues from the classic switchblade, but has more simplified shapes for a contemporary aesthetic. In short, this snappy OTF knife makes the impressive jet it was named after proud, and you’ll know just what we mean when you get your hands on one.

Like what you see? The AKC F-16 OTF knife is available in a wide array of handle colors, insert types, and blade styles. Brows our selection and pick out your favorite!

It's a $50 OTF, wadja expect?
Joel F. on Nov 15, 2019

This is my first OTF, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and if Zac could be trusted to give knife advice, NOT.Trying to figure out how to EDC this thing has been one of my main concerns with it. Even though it has a pocket clip doesn't mean that you want to carry it in your pocket. At almost 4 3/4" long, 1/2" thick and 11/16" wide not including the trigger and decorative nub this thing is a brick, it is bigger than the majority of my EDC knives. All of the hard edges create hot spots in the palm and thumb when using it and it takes quite a bit of pressure to trigger the blade. You don't want this knife if you have a propensity to sweaty palms or if you apply copious amounts of hand lotion. The deck tape applied to this knife isn't much help either unless you like sensitive finger tips for safe cracking or filing down your finger nails after a manicure. Zac says he likes this knife for the fidget factor so he is either a masochist or his hands are so calloused from all the hard labor he does that he can no longer feel anything. Go ahead and buy this knife if you happen to have an extra 50 bucks burning a hole in your pocket and you have gorilla hands but I would suggest saving up and buying something just a little bit better, I wish I had.
