Never be forced to sacrifice style for function again with Elite Tactical Knives. The ET-1016T features the Ball Bearing Pivot with Rapid Lock mechanisim. The Elite Tactical Rapid Lock is a 100% Ambidextrous knife design. The rapid lock gets its function from a small hardened steel bar that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners and is positioned over the rear of the blade. This bar engages a ramped portion of the knife blade when it is pulled towards the user releasing the blade. Two sets of ball bearings allow this knife to easily open in close with minimal wrist action. When the knife is open the tang is solidly wedged between the stop pin and Rapid Lock itself making it a safe and easy to use locking mechanism. This knife features a 3.50" TiNIte coated partially serrated 8CR13MoV tanto blade. The G10 handle is profiled and textured allowing for a comfortable and secure grip. The deep carry pocket clip allows easy concealment. A perfect addition to any outdoor gear, and an excellent everyday carry knife, you‰۪ll feel secure knowing you're prepared. When you‰۪re carrying an Elite Tactical knife, you know you‰۪re carrying the real thing.
