Meyerco has broght back the extremely popular X RAY 18, which was originally produced by Camillus. This auto knife, designed by Darrel Ralph, features the SAS Slide Auto Safety. With this extremely innovative system, you slide the trigger button up to release the safety and then push it into the knife to activate the blade. Most safety designs require two separate functions, the SAS combines them into one smooth motion. The SAS prevents the blade from accidentally opening or closing. The X-Ray 18 is 100% made in the USA!

The XRAY auto knife by Meyerco is a re-release of the extremely popular automatic knife of the same name originally produced by Camillus. As soon as you get this knife in your hand, you know you have something good. It is solid. Made with the SAS system, it is simple to open with one hand. You push the button into the handle and then slide it. This triggers the blade open. Smooth and simple. That is how all automatic knife triggers should be.
I also really like the blade on the XRAY. Made with DLC coated 154 CM stainless steel, you know this blade will weather the storms that come it's way. It also has a very nice and long straight edge that gives you a ton of cutting area. This tactical knife also is made with very durable handles that have a great pattern on them for a good solid grip.
