"M.P.C. (Multi Purpose Compact). One of the more robust folding knives on the market, it incorporates all the characteristics of the Fulcrum II, but its heavier blade allows for more efficacious cutting blows, useful in field work.The blade is in the "drop" version and has an upper hilt that works well with the profile of the blade. The handle, of generous size, allows for use with the blade closed, for applying pressure or non-lethal blows. It has a manual security lock which works on the lever mechanism "back lock" thus preventing the blade block being pressed open accidentally during energetic use. This lock can also be used when the knife is closed to prevent the knife being opened if taken without authorization. In this case the knife cannot be opened even if the mechanism is often irrevocably damaged. The tang, in tempered steel, is efficacious for breaking glass and is provided with a hole for fixing on a security lace." Light scuffs are visible on the handle otherwise the knife is in excellent condition.
