Utilitac Joe Pardue Assisted Opener Black Blade
Ontario Knife Company
Based on the top selling original Utilitac folding knife designed by Joe Pardue, this knife features a 3" AUS-8 steel blade (7-1/8" overall) with a black blade, a black G10 handle, and Ontario Knife Company's exclusive Tactical Assisted Opening (T.A.O.) mechanism. The patent-pending T.A.O mechanism was also designed by Joe Pardue to be more efficient and durable than other AO system as it features only five moving parts – the opening kick is nothing short of impressive. Precision manufactured in Taiwan.
