This Mike "Whiskers" Allen Scale Release Auto has a mirror polished stainless steel blade with fileworked spine. Scales are mother-of-pearl with engraved stainless steel dovetailed bolsters, filed stainless steel liners, filed stainless steel backspacer, lanyard hole at the butt. Beautiful piece. Nice action and blade seating, a little minor blade play. Light scratches are visible on the blade and handle otherwise the knife is in good condition.
