Smith and Wesson's M&P assisted knives are super tough and priced to move. The knife employs Smith & Wesson's M.A.G.I.C. technology, which stands for Multipurpose Assisted Generational Innovative Cutlery. The blade is deployed with the thumb tab to activate the MAGIC spring assist mechanism. This knife locks solid, and is ready for nearly anything. The SWMP9B has a black coated clip point blade and black aluminum handle.
