Smith & Wesson new assisted knife series, the Black Ops Spring Assist Knives, are the best spring assist knives on the market in the sub $40 price range. The SWBLOP2D is a strong and sturdy knife. Made with a suprisingly ergonomic Desert Sand colored, composite body that is extremely dense, this lightweight knife has the performance of a high end, expensive spring assisted knife. It opens with the ambidextrous thumb studs. You give it a start and the spring takes over and snaps the blade open. It is fast and the lock up is tight. And the liner lock knife is easy to close again. The SWBLOP series has a slide safety about halfway down the handle. It comes with a tip up, removable pocket clip that allows the knife to ride fairly deep in your pocket. The blade on the SWBLOP2D is 4034 stainless steel, black teflon coated, and plain edged. This fantastic spring assist knife will quickly become your new favorite every day carry knife--all at an unbeatable price.

Smith & Wesson knives are produced by TaylorBrands, LLC. They have done themselves proud with their new SWBLOP2 series. This Black Ops series of spring assisted knives have really good action. They open fast. They lock up tight. The safety is effective, and I really like where it is placed on the handle. The ambidextrous thumb studs are easy to reach and use to start the blade. I especially like the blade shape on these knives. You end up with a whole lot of cutting real estate. The other thing I really like is the composite handle. It is shaped just right for your hand and is extremely light--yet strong. The SWBLOP2D is a perfect every day carry spring assisted knife. And for under $40.00, it seems to be an unbeatable bargain.
