Each 4034 stainless steel blade is teflon-coated and features the ultra-fast M.A.G.I.C. assisted-open mechanism which can be activated by the ambidextrous thumb stud or the finger actuator on the back of the blade. Once activated the blade springs open at a phenomenal speed.
A blade safety switch ensures no accidental opens and a liner lock ensures the blade doesn't accidentally close while in use. 3 1/4 in. blade, 8 3/8 in. overall.
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 love the knife and I love the brand, But I dropped the dang thing once.. The spring assist mechanism failed, You can see one of the parts broken right at the base of the blade. I would retract my earlier review seeing as how I made it to soon, but I see no such button.
I ordered my knife on a Friday and got it on Saturday the next week. I was so exited to get it that I tore the package open at the doorstep with my teeth, This knife was well worth the wait. I might even order a new one for my brother! P.S It was shaving sharp out of the box! Though the plastic wrapping was cut leading me to assume someone at the warehouse opened it to sharpen it for me but still.. good customer service.
I am... disappointed. In all fairness, the knife works great, and has not stopped working. However, there are a lot of minor things with this knife that I wish could be solved.
The clip screws are not particularly secure, and when worn in the pocket have a tendency to wiggle. This wiggle moves the clip. The liner on the pommel of the knife is very thin metal, and the wiggle of the clip was enough to break it off. One of the screws in the pocket clip fell out.
The liner of the knife seems to be attached by small screws inside the liner. The handle of my knife has become separated slightly from the liner, and now wiggles about 1/16in back and forth.
Overall, yes, it's a good knife, but I was expecting a much more high-quality product out of Smith & Wesson. I doubt I'll buy anything else from them after this experience.
