From the people that brought you the Mogul, comes the TYCOON! The Tycoon from Tiger USA is spring assisted; give the blade a push via the thumb-disc and the knife does the rest (you can use the flipper on the back of the knife). The blade opens smoothly and consistently and locks up solid. The black aluminum handle features rosewood scales. The 440 stainless tanto blade features black finish with a partially serrated edge. The Tycoon has a tip down pocket clip mounted on the back. This is a great knife and great price!
