When you first pull the knife out of the box, youll notice that it is small and convenient enough to fit in your pocket or purse for all of the protection you need. This knife may be small, but dont let its outer exterior fool you. It is certainly deadly. The handle is made of zinc alloy, with a sleek matte black soft to the touch finish. This allows for a better grip. There is also a glass breaker on the end in case of emergency, but that isnt the main attraction. Just push on the metal button on the side of the handle and watch the blade fly out in the blink of an eye. The stainless steel blade in this traditional drop point style is already an eye turner, but the two tone finish gives this knife an extra edge. You can push the button back down to retract the blade swiftly and efficiently. This automatic function is what puts an automatic knife, this one especially, ahead of all the rest. For an added bonus, also included is a nylon sheath to house your knife and give you another carrying option.
