This strong pocket knife possesses a very fine and interesting looking unlocking mechanism for the blade. The lever on the handle back gets pushed forward to unlock the blade. This lifts the spring and the blade can be folded in. This mechanism facilitates the safe handling of the knife. Ends, tang, lever and rivets are made of brass, the handle sides are made of Sapeli wood. When shopping for a utility knife, you should choose a carbon steel blade because of its easier re-sharpening properties and the longer lasting edge. Another option is a blade made of stainless steel.
