This knife features CRKT's FIRE SAFE® SAFETY and OUTBURST® ASSISTED OPENING innovations.
The mechanism helps prevent accidental opening of the knife. Press the pin to release the retaining liner and pin.
The mechanism is simple and intuitive. Simply push your thumb outward and the OutBurst® will pull the blade out of the handle, raising the blade to the open and locked position. This additional action of pushing and pushing the blade helps prevent accidental opening to put you (and your knife) in complete control of the situation.
