This single action blade is an assisted opening OTF knife from Smith & Wesson. It has a safety and a tab on the side used to retract the blade in addition to the thumb slide. The mechanism takes a little getting used to, but it truly is an awesome and impressive knife. Built with tactical intent in mind, the MPOTF10FDE has a slender profile and a tactical flat dark earth finish. The AUS-8 stainless steel blade is 3.5″ long and forged into a double edge dagger, very reminiscent of aBenchmadeorMicrotechOTF Automatic. The aluminum handles are contoured for a better grip and include a glass breaker pommel, a pocket clip, and a safety lock.
