Short and Sweet.
Paul T.
I measured this knife from the handle(in front of the pivot screw area) to the tip and measured 3.1 inches not 3.5 inches. Nevertheless, after practicing opening the blade using the thumb stud spring assist I began to regain my enthusiasm with each actuation. This knife lives up to its reputation "Crack shot" as it fires open with an audible "snap" as fast as any automatic. The textured handle provides good grip and with the liner lock added in this truly has a one handed operation. Also very sharp- a great little knife.
