The Paragon ERT (Emergency Response Team) from Asheville Steel is a fast action automatic knife for those crucial moments when draw time is critical. This ERT is equipped with a chisel ground CPM-S30V blade with a durable black finish. The aluminum handle, pocket clip, and hardware are all black coated for a uniform tactical appearance.Features:
This is my first Paragon knife. It was on sale for $189.99, the full price was $269.95.There are a couple of parts of this knife that aren't very smooth when the knife isn't deployed. The pocket clip isn't smooth into the pocket but sure is secure once it goes in. The blade is ultra-sharp out of the box. Very snappy when you push that button, very low chance it would deploy by accident in your pocket, however, it is possible because there is no safety. The black finish seems durable, only time will tell.
