Closest legal knife to a switchblade3” titanium coated 4116 stainless bladeBlade ejects straight out from handleLightning fast - great for emergenciesLightweight yet tough, no-slip Zytel handleSafety switch prevents accidental dischargeClosed length: 4 3/5"; also includes pocket clip, glass breaker
The closest you’ll get to a switchblade without breaking the law, the Schrade OTF Assisted Opening Pocket Knife fires its razor-sharp spear point blade out the front at lightning speed. It’s an impressive, dramatic spectacle that gives you the quickest possible one-handed access to your blade when you need it most - self-defense, cutting fishing line from an over-stressed rod harness, severing parachute cord and countless other emergencies. If you’re trapped in a wrecked car or burning building, use the integrated glass breaker to save yourself and others. Its lightweight-yet-tough construction and ease-of-carry, with the included pocket clip, make the Schrade OTF a perfect “go-to” pocket knife, as well, suited for most day-to-day cutting jobs. Like a switchblade, the Schrade OTF’s 3” titanium-coated 4116 stainless steel blade ejects straight out of the knife handle using a trigger and spring mechanism. But it does so at a less-than-deadly force, distinguishing it from its illegal counterparts. As a further precaution, the Schrade OTF includes a safety switch to prevent accidental discharge, so you can enjoy peace-of-mind no matter where you take it or how you carry it - pants pocket, belt or. The durable, slip-resistant Zytel handle thwarts cutting blunders and unintentional injuries. At this affordable price - the lowest you’ll find anywhere - there’s no reason not to stock up! Get one to carry everyday, one for your tackle box and one for your car or RV. Don’t forget friends, family and coworkers! The Schrade OTF makes a great gift for campers, survivalists, preppers, farmers, or anyone who may one day need its superior cutting power and breakneck speed - virtually anyone, in other words! Measures 7 1/2” overall.

Hey Bud K,
I like the knife. At work, I had been carrying it in my pocket all day and messed it up. It was full of tobacco, dirt and lint---so I washed it and dried it (OTF First Gen. Black) on top of the charbroiler.
Needless to say, I had to buy another one, because the handle is not flame-resistant to 400°F. And direct and prolonged contact with degreaser will warp it.
But, I like this knife a lot.
I just got the Gray OTF.
It doesn't matter if it can "punch a hole through a stop sign", as my friend suggested.
I stabbed it through a Pet Taxi (no animals harmed), Rubber Maid trashcan and cut tow rope with it---so far.
Great quality knife, sturdy enough for everyday work and also a good defense knife.
I got lucky that it was on sale!
Thanks Bud K!
I have to admit when I opened it I thought, well there is money wasted. It's not a bad knife. Lightweight, some practice and you can open it with one hand. So as long as it holds together, I guess I will be satisfied.
Just received the knife today and I absolutely love it!...very sleek and sharp blade...one of my best buys off of Budk and totally recommend it
I don't understand the poor reviews. I don't have any other OTF knives, but this one performs exactly as advertised and I like it a lot. I've been carrying it every day for a month, using the pocket clip, and I haven't had any issues. I made a point to open and close it several times a day, to get used to it, and found the mechanism easy to manipulate. It might have loosened up a bit after a few hundred cycles. No complaints, and with a little bit of work I put a very nice edge on the blade.
I love this knife, its easy to use razor sharp & light weight. you cant go wrong for the quality & price , its my new EDC.
Despite the negative reviews here, I also looked up reviews elsewhere and found the knife reviewed better. I love this knife. It does take some practice for one handed operation. And yes, the handle is a plastic like material, however, it's also $20 and the material keeps the knife lighter. I love love the spring assisted opening and the side locking mechanism. I found it on other sites listed at a much higher price. Mine has functioned fine. So much so, that several of the guys I work with had me order them one as well. I'm amazed at people who complain about this knife. If you do not like upon receipt, send it back. It's really that simple. If it fails due to manufacturer defect, send it back. Again, you're not spending a lot on this knife so you need to bear that in mind. BUDK has excellent customer service. For me it was a great addition to my collection.
If properly trained with this cheap little knife you can grab it off the clip from your pocket hold it upside down to crack a skull with the glass breaker and pop the switch with your thumb to shoot the blade out of the bottom of your fist for split second stabbing. If needed that is. I have bought and lost five of these because I keep it clipped inside the small fifth pocket of my jeans witch allows me to pull it very fast and lose it in tall brush.
I would say it was worth what I paid for it and I thought i was getting a deal. says last price was 56$ and I paid around 20 for it. Was really tiny minus what the reviews said the blade was a bit shy of 3 inches when I measured it if that helps. I have a 6$ flick out knife that's bigger. Wasn't really sharp as I could rub my finder across the blade and not cut my finger. The knife has a spring that makes it similar to a switch blade which I liked. I wish the handle had a little more grip even though its current grip is fine. Overall was worth the buy for me.
The plastic is good but don't be extremely rough with it I fear it may break. But I like it for.everyday stuff opening sealed bag an such.
It may not be the best OTF knife mechanism made but for the price it has worked well for me and with over 100 knives it is my regular carry for the last year or so. I didnt want to spend $40 for a pocket knife as I tend to lose them, plus didn't know if I'd like an OTF or not so this was perfect and to my surprise it was well worth it. If you practice opening and closing it one handed you'll get used to it. Just keep away from the sharp side of the blade while retracting it, if you slip it will pop right back out. The little pivoting lever on the blade doesn't do much for locking the blade, you have to use the lock on the side or it will open and cut right through your pocket. Blade is what I'd expect from Schrade, easy to sharpen and holds a good edge.
Poor knife. Weak and cheaply made.
I bought on sale for $20 but I'd wish I read the reviews first and I'd have passed. When received, I'd forgotten about the zytel handles and they looked a little cheap. The spring assisted component of the opening is fine but everything else was a disappointment. Don't bother using the pocket clip, the rough plastic handle edges, the glass breaker, clip and other metal parts will scratch up your hand. The only way to one-hand open the knife is with the blade pointing down, just make sure you don't catch your fingers in slide. Trying to push up the thumb release means holding the very end of the knife and when your hands are slippery, the powerful spring can cause you to drop it. The safety catch is stiff and also digs into your finger trying to move it. Overall, an uncomfortable to carry, problematic to use knife. Save your money.
Not worth two dimes. jammed first time i opened it and release button snapped off when i tried to close it. no no no
Just received this knife and I've bought plenty of schrade OTF knives and this is by far the cheapest knife I've gotten. Not worth the money at all. Don't waste your money, buy the schrade viper OTF instead.
I agree with the others..too hard to open (requires two hands)..scares the crap out of me when it opens..too hard to close..not convenient at all..crappy mechanism...other than that!!!.....
It feels cheap. I think the plastic would break if I accidentally stepped on it. The glass breaker is a joke in this design ... you are more likely to break your hand. Seems very hard to use one handed but it is getting better the more I mess with it - so I guess it requires a break in period ...
Like any piece of gear, the user needs to practice with it to become proficient. Also, you can't compare it to another knife unless the prices were similar, otherwise just keep your donut hole closed about it. It is like comparing a Vette with a 72 pinto and ripping on Ford cuz the pinto isn't very fast or doesn't handle well. For 20 bucks, it s d**n good knife. Maybe the sally commenting about it not being a good product should just go back to his pottery class and leave knives alone. Zmann
The knife is very unsafe, the design is takes 2 hands. Not worth the money at all.
I bought this knife while it was on sale. I would not buy it for anymore than I paid for it. It's good quality, but that isn't what make this a three star. First and for most, the ergonomics for a one handed operation has much to be desired. The release should be near your thumb, either at the middle or other end of the knife. It's plenty sharp, and it is light. Not as good as my S.O.G forward assist.
I bought this knife because I didn't have an OTF knife in my collection. The knife opens really quick and it's a little scary (keep away from the timid). Its a good knife for the price though and It's preyyy cool, but be safe.
