The ideal balance of utility, aesthetics, strength and value, Schrade's Sure-Lock Clip Folder is robust without being heavy or cumbersome; stylish without being gaudy; and versatile without being burdened down by superfluous features. Simply put, it's the ultimate affordable everyday-carry pocket knife, the result of engineering expertise only Schrade's decades of cutlery innovation could yield. Forged from professional grade AUS-8 high carbon stainless steel, the 3 1/2" clip point blade is exceptionally rugged and carefully honed to a razor sharp edge. Ambidextrous thumb studs allow for quick one-handed blade deployment, and, once opened, Schrade's exclusive "Sure-Lock" mechanism keeps the blade fixed firmly in position for added safety and stability during use. The "Sure-Lock" is easily released with a simple flip of a switch. Sleek, streamlined and modern, the handle design not only looks cool, its ribbed texture affords a no-slip grip and delightfully tactile hand feel, as well. The handle boasts a rock solid aluminum core with a comfortable, control-boosting TPR outer shell. Secure the Schrade Sure-Lock Clip Folder via the handy built-in pocket clip and/or lanyard hole, and never leave home without this bladed workhorse! From day-to-day cutting jobs around the house to vigorous chores deep in remote back country and everything in between, this outstanding all-arounder does it all and does it well.
