Smith & Wesson SWATL Assist Knife Review

The Smith & Wesson SWAT knives have been delighting knife lovers for quite some time.  Built with the MAGIC assist mechanism, these assist knives blast open with some serious force.

The 3.7″ stainless steel drop point blade gives you a serious blade for serious cutting chores.  The blade opens with the ambidextrous thumb studs.  Or, better yet, you can open the blade with the spine flipper.  The blade snaps out as fast as most automatic knives.  Lock up is nice and tight with a well constructed liner lock.  When the blade is open, you can slide the safety on the front handle scale which then locks the blade in the open position, giving you extra blade security when making heavy cuts.

The handle is anodized aluminum with a natural silver color.  This is nicely accented with grip tape inserts which give you amazing grip on the already comfortably ergonomic handle.  There is mild jimping in all the usual places.  The butt of the handle boasts a countersunk lanyard hole for alternate carry.

The pocket clip is extra wide.  Set in the tip down, right hand carry position, the clip is removable, but not reversible.

This full size assist knife is perfect for anyone looking for a big, well built, durable knife for daily carry and heavy use.  I especially like the blade open speed.  A classic shaped knife under the Smith & Wesson banner.  Comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Check it out here on our website.
