If you’re looking for a durable, reliable, and easy to conceal out-the-front knife, look no further than the ElitEdge Mini Automatic OTF Knife w/Belt Clip. It may seem fragile and soft at a first glance. However, it is stable, solid, and well put together. It is the ideal knife if you want a full-size unit without having to deal with the weight and bulk. It is suitable for all kinds of applications – great for hunting, survival, adventure, and other outdoor activities.
Normal EDC knives are cumbersome to open and often require two hands to operate, but with an OTF switchblade, a smooth blade ejection is just one switch away. This automatic knife is spring assisted and uses a double action press release button, allowing the blade to eject out the front with a slide switch, and return to its resting place via the same switch using just one hand to operate.
The Automatic OTF Knife is great for self-defense and easier to handle than assisted-opening models. The mini size allows you to fit the blade into a pocket, or bag, and retrieve with a speed that folding knives can’t match. Using an OTF knife also removes the need to ever touch the sharp edge.
Automatic knives are known to be more durable than folding knives and less likely to break at the hinge. In addition, it’s easy to clean—optimal for outdoorsmen who like to hike and hunt. Also preferred by fishermen.
The switchblade is available in 4 colors: blue, black, pink, and red.
Automatic blades were first introduced in the 18th century, but they’ve come a long way. At Cutting Edge Products, we prioritize utility, a smooth handling experience, and a sharp edge, optimized for everyday use.
Since their invention, the legality of switchblades has been in question. Today, it varies depending on geographic location. In the 19th century, automatic knives were banned in most places. However, in 2009, an amendment to the Federal Switchblade Act lifted restrictions on spring-assisted knives. Before you buy or sell, make sure to verify the model is legal in your state.
As a member of the American Knife and Tool Institute (AKTI), we are committed to ensuring that there will always be switchblade knives for sale. To learn more about automatic switchblade laws, see AKTI.org.
