The evolution of a proven design, this everyday carry pocket knife stands up to the daily grind with all steel construction. Dual thumbstuds allow for ambidextrous opening and a durable frame lock can be operated with one hand.
A smart combination of two best-selling designs, the Airlift offers the durable steel frame of the Paraframe with the streamlined blade and handle design of the RipStop. The result is an everyday carry knife that is light in the pocket yet extremely resilient in use.
With a little twicking you can adjust this knife to the way you need it to work for you and your needs for this nicely designed tool. Would buy silver but doesn't work for me. Plus only paid $20 at target.
I really like this knife for the price. I think the bevels are hollow ground so if you use a good sharpener, it'll get real sharp. I can easily open it with one hand. I put a little bit of lubricant on the pivoting point of the knife so it slides open easily. The knife fits nicely in my pocket and the clip stays tight, even when I'm working. My only complaint would be the thumb stud. The right handed side of the thumb stud is about a 1/4" long, but the left handed side is only 1/8". The combination of the clip placement and the short thumb stud could make harder on handed opened for left handed people. Overall, its a tough little knife with a good price tag.
I'm really happy with this knife, Its a very nice design that looks great in black/gold. The best part is not just how solid it feels when you are holding it, but how smooth it opens/closes. The hardware is stuck and will not turn so you can't adjust the screw that your blade pivots on to tighten or lossen it
