First of its kind Spring Assist knife, this model features the highly sought after out-the-front action. This is a true new production technology spring assist knife, not an illegal stiletto automatic.

Fast action spring assist knives give you a tactical advantage when every second counts.
How are Spring Assist different from a Gravity Knife or Switchblade Knife?

Gravity or Switch Blade knives feature a button, level, or other type of switch that releases a spring pressure to automatically open the blade. On a Spring Assist knife, there is no separate button or switch. Instead, you apply pressure to part of the blade to begin the opening process. This is usually a small bump of metal which sticks out under the knife, making it fast and comfortable to use. Once you press on that part of the blade, it automatically opens and locks into place. Since the action of opening the knife is started by pressing the blade metal, instead of a button or switch, it is considered to bypass the laws which ban Switch Blade knives.

I bought 2 Reviewed by Christopher Sawford on Feb 11, 2019   5 out of 5

One for myself one for my girl with engravings. Though from watching a couple YouTube videos, I thought the engravings would be much larger. But still sharp solid knives. I was able to open and close mine with one hand in under a minute. Was also bummed that the rainbow version was not in stock for my girl. Still a good purchase.

Great knife!! Reviewed by Christopher Cabrera on Feb 08, 2019   5 out of 5

I bought this Knife for myself about a month ago. I am very pleased with the sharpness of the blade out of the box. The handle is a plastic material making it light weight and a very easy to carry. Also, adding the engraving tops it off In overall look. Worth every penny.

It's okay. Reviewed by on Jan 09, 2019   2 out of 5

It is awkward and time consuming to get the blade out for use....too many safeties and buttons to push. It also doesn't lock into place, you have to pull it a little to get it to lock. With a little use I am hoping it will fully extend and lock on its own.

Good Reviewed by on Dec 04, 2018   5 out of 5

I have had this knife for a couple of months it is a good knife and I can conceal carry it since it aint automatic. Out of the box it was descently sharp it would not open all the way so I put some 3 in 1 oil on it and broke it in and it works fine as long as you don’t get dirt in. I got some sand in it from being in my pocket so I had to take it apart and clean it and I can see why it shoots out as fast as it does

Sufficient Boot knive Reviewed by Kim Brown on Jan 15, 2018   4 out of 5

Very pleased with knife, bought 2 one for myself and for my husband. I use mine as a boot knife. I like the heaviness to the knife, well built. Until you get the feel for opening & closing with one hand operation it works just great and looks nice.

My favorite knife yet! Reviewed by on Jan 07, 2018   5 out of 5

I keep it oily with Machine gun grease, but, it's practical and quite handy. I like how it has the safefty switch and it is slip-resistant. I live in a rough city, travel a lot and now got a handy knife should I ever need it. Great job, BuDK. ---customer for life!!
