R.A.M. Knife -
The new Black R.A.M. (Restraint Articulated Mechanism) also comes with a partially serrated blade for even greater versatility. This great-looking knife also features the secure Hawk Lock to help keep all this bold power locked down until you release it. The patent pending Hawk Lock keeps the R.A.M.'s Tungsten DLC coated blade exactly where the knife user wants it, either securely locked inside the handle for carrying, or safely locked into position for use. The R.A.M. features Flipper ambidextrous opening, as well as built-in thumb knobs for fast and easy opening. To close the blade, unlock the Hawk Lock and fold the blade in. This unique technology led Blade Magazine to name the original R.A.M. as 2007's Most Innovative American Design. Includes removable and reversible, three position pocket clip.
Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.
G-10 Handle -
Apoxy filled woven glass fiber; it is extremely stable, unaffected by temperature changes , and can be decoratively tinted, ground, and polished. G-10 makes excellent handles and handle scales for knives.
Described as able to use both the right and left hands with equal dexterity. Person is both, right and left handed.
Reversible Pocket Clip -
The knife handles on some models are drilled for both left and right hand clip carry allowing the clip to be mounted on either side of the handle.
Removable Pocket Clip -
This feature allows for tip up or tip down carry, or the clip can be removed completely.
