The Tiger Dragon Stiletto Flare knife features machined aluminum scales with a dragon graphic inset. This knife is spring assisted - just give the black coated 1095 stainless steel blade a push on the thumb-stud or guard and the knife will push the blade out the rest of the way automatically. The blade opens smoothly and locks up tight. The knife has a liner lock that must be pushed to release the blade to close the knife. The knife has a removable steel pocket clip (tip up).
