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.

I love this OTF switch blade. This thing is well built and not very expensive, very sharp. I just sit around playing with this knife for hours.
If you are looking for a cheap reliable switch blade to play with, this blade is for you. I just like to sit at my desk and play with this guy after work. I don't use it for anything more. i haven't tried using it for anything else. It works perfect every time. solid blade. good fun!!! sharp blade!!
The AKC F-16 is exactly what you would expect in a sub-$50 OTF. It's a low-end knife or a high-end letter opener, but either way, it's FUN! The action is solid, deploying and retracting the 440 steel swiftly. The heavy handle feels solid in the hand and the deck tape grip, as silly as it seems, actually does the job it was given. Until I can afford an Infidel, this is a perfectly fine OTF that has lots of fidget-value and coolness factor, if not EDC usefulness.
At $50, you wont be getting s90v and titanium, but thats okay. I think I speak for many people that the reason for buying and OTF is one handed ease of use and fidget fun. This knife isn’t trying to be anything more than a useable beater OTF, and thats exactly why its good!
