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, etc. 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.
