This high-powered tanto spring assisted knife is built for self-defense. The blade is equipped with Tailwind spring assist technology for lightening fast deployment. The assisted-open mechanism is activated by pressing the blade spur on the back of the blade.The blade is forged from 440 stainless steel, comes sharp from the factory, and is finished in black. The handle design is a cross between spores and a mesh, and provides a secure grip even when wet. The handle also features a belt clip for easy carry. 3 in. blade, 7 1/2 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.

Bought this knife as a gift but I might have to keep It. perfect size for every day carry. Love it.
This knife is what it says it is. Opens super fast and a super sharp blade. This is now my favorite knife.
This is a another must have knife. This tailwind lives up to the claim fastest assisted open knives on the market. It snaps open with such force, it puts other assisted open knives to shame. Fits great in the hand, came with a good edge easily made razor sharp, and the serrated portion of the knife...just plain nasty. I really like the tanto style blade it adds to the toughness of the knife. Great self defense item to have, solid built knife. I liked it so much that I ordered another, you cant go wrong with this tailwind. If you're looking for a great everyday carry knife then buy this knife.
