The Smith and Wesson OTF family of knives has finally been reincarnated after being discontinued in 2013. The exact functionality of these knives are defined as OTF spring assisted models–meaning they are single-action out the front knives and the “blade slider” helps manually start the blade before the spring officially engages and deploys the blade but needs to be manually retracted. Each model features a hollow ground blade comprised of AUS-8 stainless steel which is the ideal balance of edge retention and ease of maintenance. Additionally, the wide-body handle design offers an ergonomic feel especially since the trigger is on the broad side of the handle and every OTF includes a slide safety found near the base. The legacy of Smith & Wesson knives and tools is built on fine craftsmanship, quality and dependability. Their expansive line consists of assisted opening, folding and fixed blade knives, as well various multi-tools and accessories in an effort to offer something for every need and every job. This model features a dark grey aluminum handle, an integrated glass breaker function, a dagger style blade in a black finish and the pocket clip is statically designed for tip down carry only on the traditional side of the handle.
