When you first open up this knife, the first words out of your mouth are going to be "It's M.A.G.I.C.". And that is what this truly is! M.A.G.I.C. stands for Multipurpose, Assisted, Generational, and Innovative Cutlery. M.A.G.I.C. refers to the dual patented; revolutionary assisted opening mechanism that is an integral part of this series of knives. You will find that the M.A.G.I.C. assisted opening mechanism is the easiest, single handed opening system you have ever used. (Also included patented side safety side lock).
