The CRKT Burnley Assisted Opening Squid comes with a framelock for safety and the Assist Open for super fast deployment. This everyday carry knife designed by Lucas Burnley is based on the idea of a compact pistol, small yet mighty. The 2.37" beadblast finished blade is ready for any cutting job and the drop point style gives it an ideal balance of tip strength and point geometry for all your cuts.
The Squid™ is built with the Assisted Opening innovation to make it easy and quick to open. Nudge the blade open part way and Assisted Opening activates, snapping it open at super high speed. The IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system makes for a smooth rotation and a frame lock keeps it solidly in place.
How Assisted Opening Works
It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation the blade swings open at impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
