The spring assisted knife is quite a remarkable blade. Developed because of laws and municipalities that bar or prevent one from legally owning and/or carrying automatic switchblade knives, it is the perfect solution!

This spring assisted knife, in contrast to a standard automatic switchblade knife, is not opened by pressing an activating button (the button is what gets an automatic knife classified as illegal) , it is opened by using the index-open "flipper", which creates a hand guard when it is open.

The beauty of this spring assisted feat of engineering lies in its pivot area where a wound-up internal spring has been nested that assists in the opening of the knife. It is this spring that differentiates this spring assisted knife from its automatic switchblade / OTF cousins as well as the standard folding, manually-opened, lock blade knife.

To summarize the internal spring featured in this knife assists and finishes the opening process once the index flipper is pushed. That's right!!! Once the blade has reached a 30-40 degree angle, it automatically slams open the rest of the way !!!

Springing open to 8.5" ( 3.5 inch Blade ) ,and weighing  1/4 lb ( 4.6 oz ) gives this knife a Streamlined Feel and being Spring Assisted it exhibits all of the Function for a perfect everyday carry.  The Red and Black Aluminum Scales are complete with Jimping and a Stainless Steel Frame which is paired with a Matte Black 8CR13 Stainless Steel Drop Point Blade with Thumb Ring making it highly resistant to the elements while offering enhanced grip, an aggressive look, Excellent Edge Retention, and the longevity and durability found is some of the most expensive cutlery!

Add to all this, a handy / removable pocket clip as well as a reliable, robust Liner Lock which keeps the blade secure and stable when opened and you have a knife that is conveniently suited to most tasks!

As a legal alternative to a push button automatic knife, an impressive unique knife for your collection, or an incredibly useful tool, perfect for daily use, this Spring Assisted Knife fits the bill!
