There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
