SCHOTF5B: Extreme Survival 4th Gen OTF Assist, Black Plain
Schrade brand knives have so many models - but they are cleverly designed, well made and really economical. These Out-the-Front openers are super fast and well made. They have a safety and blade on the side and the mechanism takes a little getting used to, but they are truly awesome and impressive. The 4th Generation Out the Front Assist model is no exception. It's got a 3.2" single edge spear point blade, tough gray aluminum handles, locking safety mechanism, and a glass breaker.

Pros: None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Nice paper weight
Broken out of the box. It rattles and the assist doesn't work making it manual opening that gets stuck half way most of the time. I would recommend getting something of high quality as I have had no use with this as it came broken...

Cool Knife, Good Price.
Overall, I'd say this OTF knife is a nice knife for the price. I haven't put it through any strenuous tests, but so far it is holding up. The blade has little play when deployed and the handle feels relatively sturdy. The safety lock seems to work well to prevent deployment of the blade. I will mention that the knife didn't deploy fully a few times early on. The blade would get hung up near the top and had to be manually pushed into its locking position. BUT I lubricated the knife by spraying Tri-Flow (similar to WD-40) in/around the openings of the knife, and after a little use, it hasn't gotten stuck AT ALL. I think the mechanism just had to be worked a little/lubricated. Also, the spring may have been a little compressed from storage. It's a neat knife that is actually legal to own/carry in many places. If you couldn't tell already, this is not a switchblade, as the user must push push the blade a little first (using the sliding switch). The switch then follows the blade up the side of the knife. If you're interested in this knife, I'd check out some videos of it online, so you fully understand what you're buying.
