Guardian Tactical's patented OTF mechanism provides smooth, responsive opening action. The unique thumb slide design is separated from the aluminum handle by a plate and 3 ceramic balls that eliminate grinding and wear. An innovative locking mechanism sits off to the side of the blade channel so it doesn't drag against the blade when opening and closing. These features eliminate the friction on the blade and button that have always plagued OTF knives. Take your OTF game to the next level with the Guardian Tactical RECON-035.

I own several Microtech OTF's and love them. That said, I can say that this knife is on par with those knives. In fact, I find the deployment button a bit easier for me as I have larger hands and the button gives a bit more area for my thumb to actuate. There is a slight bit of blade play but OTF's will have that by design. The knife comes razor sharp and deploys smoothly and quietly with no spring noise. Pocket clip is appropriately snug without being difficult. Will likely purchase another.
