From the people that brought you the Mogul, comes the TYCOON! The Tycoon is spring assisted; Give the blade a push via the thumb-stud and the knife does the rest (you can also press the flipper on the back of the knife). The blade opens consistently and locks up solid. The spectrum aluminum handle has G-10 scales (front and back). The 440 stainless tanto blade is spectrum finished (partially serrated). The Tycoon has a pocket clip mounted on the back (tip down). Overall: This is a great knife and great price!
