This small handmade assisted opener is powered only after the blade is squeezed back towards the handle. It has a bias toward closure until the blade is moved. Dao shaped blade with Hamon (Japanese clay temper line). Honeycomb composite handle scales with copper electroconductive mokome bolsters.
The "mystery" part is a new locking mechanism I have been working on that locks up the knife when it is pointed tip down. $625.
