How does this miracle work?
The blade is put out from the handle by the original openwork washer attached to its butt. Smoothly rotating the blade around the axial screw, you see how the handle structure comes to life, showing you the mechanical dance of its details: the inner steel frame mischievously peeks out from under the outer titanium one, through the slotted decor of the handle, the mutual movements of the blade and frames are visible. A pleasant click completes the 180 — degree turn of the blade, signaling its fixation. Simultaneously with this sound, the ballet of multidirectional movements of unusual folding parts ends. The result of the interaction of a pair of groove and roller, which are part of the locking mechanism, is the locking of the blade of the folder. The palm gripping the handle adds to the reliability of fixing the blade.
The rear backspaser acts as a spring that attracts the components of the handle to each other. To close the knife, hold it with your thumb and middle finger by the perforated grooves in the handle, decorated with the same pattern as the washer-peg, and press the butt of the blade with your index finger. There is a special pause halfway through the movement of the blade for safety and pleasant tactile sensations. Such a knife represents its owner as a searching, extraordinary person, striving for new things and appreciating the unusual.
