Differentiating from other pocket knives, the folder has a slightly curved edge near the blade with a thumb ramp, similar to a tactical knife. Nonetheless the folder contains of two G10 handles bundled together through an open-pillar construction and features a liner lap mechanism. The blade opens up with the help of dual stump thuds.
