All models feature the patented Lake and Walker knife safety (LAWKS), which
effectively turns the folders into fixed blades when actuated. One hand
opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of precision tolerances
and teflon bearings at the blade pivot. The dual ambidextrous thumb studs
with checkered surfaces provide instant access in any circumstance. M16-14

tanto style blade.
