This is definitely an unique and novel knife. It is a miniature replica of a .45 caliber gun with wooden scales. Instead of pulling the trigger, you gently press the 'sight' (flipper) which engages the spring assisted mechanism and releases the blade. With lightning fast action, this knife features a stainless steel black-finish drop point blade with a bullet cutout, aluminum scales, lanyard hole, and smiling skull overlay. A great everyday carry knife that adds personality to any key chain.
