Ontario Knife Company's Joe Pardue Utilitac Folder is based on the top selling original Utilitac folding knife designed by Joe Pardue. This knife features a three inch AUS-8 steel blade, and measures 7.125 inches overall. With a black finish, an upgraded black G-10 handle, and Ontario knife Company's exclusive Tactical Assisted Opening mechanism, the patent pending T.A.O. mechanism was also designed by Joe Pardue to be more efficient and durable than other AO systems as it features only five moving parts. The opening kick is nothing short of impressive.

Super fast easy high quality open assist, I love how smooth and quick it is. I have the dark blade and high shine blade. Both are perfect and for this price you can't go wrong. It just feels right n your hand. No disappointments on this.

Very quality knife. Sturdy, tight, and very sharp right out of the box. The assisted opening mechanism feels really solid and the G10 grips are a nice spec. A really well-built knife at a very low price. Highly Recommend!!!!
