    Jumping out of the history book and into your pocket. Like an old-world Persian fixed blade, the Ritual tactical folding knife has a long, drastic blade curve and a substantial handle. But what makes it fit for a modern carry is the powerful Assisted Opening innovation that snaps open at lightning-fast speeds. It’s perfect for doing battle in ancient Persia and for making quick work of a package on your doorstep.

    When he sat down at his bench to dream up the Ritual, designer Alan Folts of Melbourne, Florida was imagining what a Persian fixed blade would look like if it had evolved over generations and most recently landed in your pocket. This contemporary tactical folder is built with a long, curved blade crafted of strong, edge-holding stainless steel. It folds neatly into the resin-infused fiber handle with a nostalgic stainless steel bolster.

    When Alan challenged himself to truly set the Ritual apart from knives of the past, he built it around Assisted Opening. Nudge the blade open part-way and Assisted Opening activates, snapping it open at super high speed. The IKBS ball bearing pivot system makes for a smooth rotation and a liner lock keeps it solidly in place.

    The Ritual looks like an heirloom and acts like a high-tech tactical.

    How Assisted Opening Works... It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part-way through the rotation the blade swings open at an impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
