The Mini Whaler is one wicked looking knife! Sleek, slim and sturdy. Features orange anodized aluminum scales over a black coated steel frame. The Mini Whaler is spring assisted- just give the black coated 1045 stainless steel spear blade a push with the flipper and the blade comes out the rest of the way automatically. The blade opens smoothly and locks up tight. Also features a liner lock that must be pushed to release the blade to close the knife. The knife has a removable steel black pocket clip (tip up) and safety. Features Torx screw construction.
