This automatic features a hand-rubbed satin finish blade, satin bolsters, and mother of pearl scales. File work on front of bolster and along the spine. The knife is easily opened by pressing your thumb against the fileworked part of the bolster and sliding it forward. Doing the same when the knife is open will release the lock and allow you to close the knife. Strong and fast automatic opening. Excellent fit and finish. There are some scratches on the bolsters.
