Description
ON8872: Utilitac Joe Pardue Assisted Opener
Ontario Knife Company
 
Based on the top selling original Utilitac folding knife designed by Joe Pardue, this knife features a 3" AUS-8 steel blade (7-1/8" overall) with a satin finish, a grippy black G10 handles and Ontario Knife Company's exclusive Tactical Assisted Opening (T.A.O.) mechanism. The patent-pending T.A.O mechanism was also designed by Joe Pardue to be more efficient and durable than other assisted opening systems as it features only five moving parts – the opening kick is nothing short of impressive. The safety lock will also keep your mind at ease and help prevent accidental opening.

Another great value from this line of knives
I just got this, so I can't attest to its durability, but the fit, finish and action are extremely nice -- especially in this price range. I bought this as a gift for someone ... but they might just get another knife instead. This is my second Utilitac and I love them both, but this is the better of the two for edc. The lock to keep the blade from opening accidentally is a nice touch. It's easy to use and probably necessary given the heavy spring action on the assisted opening. I'd love to see this come out in a super steel version -- but I've had good experiences with the AUS8 steel on other knives, so this is still just fine. Highly recommend this one as an affordable carry knife that you won't be afraid to use.
