Possibly the best pocket knife in the world ideal for self defense. The unique feature is the dual extensions that easily grip to your pocket when withdrawn causing the knife to exit in an open state. It needs a little practice but eventually your muscle memory to always remove the knife in an open state will set in. This allows for the quickest possible reaction to any threat. That split second difference is the difference between getting harmed and inflicting harm. The next great point is that this is a tried and tested knife, used effectively by the Military. It is strong and will never let you down. The dual safety feature is amazing - will not easily close under stress. The best point is the price. You get the best protection at the best price.
