Forceful quality
The ATOMIC series
Dual action OTF Automatic Knives
with glass breaker

*OTF = Out The Front
*Dual = the same button fires out and retracts the blade a.k.a pop out - pop back system.


Have a forceful and reliable (as much as OTF knives can be) tactical knife, along with a real all purpose abilities.
  • It fires out very forcefully
  • Retracts in a blink
  • The blade material is not marked, yet it feels like a very good steel.
  • Combines a very sturdy heavy-duty construction with elegant lines.
  • Very comfortable to hold and operate.
  • Has a special screw at the bottom that serves as a glass breaker in emergencies.
  • Comes with a sheath and a clip.
Bottom line, if you see an OTF with a long warranty, then jump on it, it's a very good product as far as OTF's go.

Personal opinion; not being a big fan of OTF knives to begin with, because of lack of reliability for the most of them, I still would take this one, that's if I ever changed my mind about the whole concept. A very good knife.

Things that one should consider regarding any OTF switchblade:
Let’s cut to the chase; deterrence and tactical ability are the sole purpose of any Front knives (Out The Front knife). One does not buy such a knife to slice and dice in the kitchen, nor does one purchase an out-of- front opening knife to be used as a regular-all-purpose pocket knife. Therefore, when thinking about walking around with that thing, one should consider the following:
  • All Front knives are dangerous to their users and others. Most of Front knives do not come with a safety device. A toddler will find a way to fire it open, it is just a question of time and opportunity. Do not buy one if you can’t keep it-hidden constantly.
  • There are two main Front knives categories: the most common are armed automatically (pop-in pop-out) and a not so common; the armed manually. The first is very convenient; the latter is more powerful.
  • The blade wobbles in most Front knives because of the very nature of that firing system. Smith & Wesson and Shrade came up with a patented lock, that prevents blade’s wobbling almost completely, all the rest wobble, whether a little or substantially; even the prestigious CONCORD wobbles a bit.
  • The out of front is a delicate firing system; misuse the knife and chances are that it will fall apart.
The Bottom Line: Think responsibility and close tactical emergency when purchasing an Out The Front OTF knife. Do not leave it lying around, it is not a letter opener, nor is it an appropriate device to cure one’s nails.

Inherent Weakness of OTF Knives October 2, 2016
Reviewer: Walter S Curtis Jr from Buffalo, NY United States  
When I received this knife, I was impressed by the overall look of this fine piece of steel. I check all my knives for the "tightness" of the blade by grasping the blade at it's closest point to the handle, and wiggle the blade. No movement is fantastic, movement is bad. This blade had movement, hence the inherent weakness of all OTF's.
