It also includes a stainless steel pocket clip for tip-down carry. A sliding safety keeps the blade secure in the closed position.

Impractical and difficult to operate

Take careful note of the dimensions listed, as this is a large knife. The hand shown in the photo makes the knife look considerably smaller than it is.

Beyond the size, though, as that is purely a matter of preference, I find this OTF very impractical to use. The safety lock is a good idea for this design, as it doesn't take much force to deploy the blade, but I would prefer the switch be stiffer and no safety required. This is not a practical design for a one-handed knife, as I expect an OTF to be, because the safety is awkward to try to release with one hand. The blade can be extended easily with one hand, and the lever to unlock the blade is easy to press with the thumb of your knife hand, but it takes two hands (and a lot of force) to retract the blade. The small slide used to retract the blade is sharp, and the force required makes it painful to use.

This knife might be worth the money for someone just wanting the novelty of having an OTF, but it's too awkward to use to make it more than a toy for me.
Great otf for the money

I love the heavy feel of this knife. It was extremely sharp out of the box. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars because the reset takes a lot of hand/thumb strength to pull the blade back. But, that's also the positive, because of the strength of the spring, it fires with great intent. Great buy for the money.
more solid then most folders

very exceptional all around. it is a great work knife and it is very safe as far as the blade solidity. the safety works very well and the slide to draw the blade back is very smooth. i have spent more on a otf that wasnt even a quarter of the quality as this. this was my second knife in a long collection and it is still one of my best hands down. as always blade hq came through in very quick time. just buy it. its as simple as that

The locking mechanism when the knife is fully extended out of the front is not that strong.. Extend the blade then drop it blade first even 2 feet and it will collapse with out even activating the retraction lock. So guess it's a fun toy for around $40-50 bucks but doesn't seem that solid. Guess you get what you pay for.
A really nice knife

It came today in the mail and I'm totally shocked, the quality of this knife is outstanding! Feels great in the hand, blade is super sharp with no wobble at all. Only concern is the location of the blade release,if it's dropped I'm afraid the release might get broken but other than that it's a 10 star knife on a 5 star scale! I'll definitely order another one and as always I can't praise the service of Blade hq enough, thanks guys!
Good first OTF knife

This was my first OTF knife. Itís built a lot better than you would think at the price point. Lockup is nice and tight with no play. Well worth $40 or so.

This my second assisted otf knife by smith and wesson i originally bought the spear point but this one is by far my favorite there it has been a month since I have received it and just as the first one it still deploys with force, no problem with blade play, a glass breaker, and good steel for a phenomical price.

The only cons would be a tiny and awkward shaped button slide to retrack the blade but I've got adapt to using it one handed.

I would absolutely recommend this knife to anyone who want a low price otf that preforms well above the asking price!
