This knife is listed as a spring assisted knife, but in our opinion it is more of an automatic. The blade is deployed by either pushing the blade open or you can push the button on the spine of the knife and it opens automatically. Either way, this is a GREAT knife and you'll be pleased! M.A.G.I.C. stands for Multipurpose Assisted Generational Innovative Cutlery.
Gray T6061 aluminum handle with grip inserts. Black finished 4034 steel blade with dual thumb-studs and "auto" flipper. Includes pocket clip and safety.
