Kershaw RJ Series of Assisted Openers
Amazing series of Speedsafe assisted openers designed by the great custom knifemaker RJ Martin. These work great and have a nicely streamlined handle. The blade shape is remarkable because it’s a tanto style but still has some belly on it which makes it more useful. You can see the series at www.knifecenter.com
Here is the description from Kershaw Knives:
Kershaw Knives has some of the best assisted opening folding pocket knives made today. Designed by RJ Martin, the RJ I’s blade design and grind provides a moderately curved belly with plenty of slicing power, plus a flat-ground tanto tip that’s significantly thicker than comparable tantos. The result is an über-strong tip that takes on the toughest piercing tasks with no fear. The RJ I features 3-D machined G-10 handles with a stainless-steel liner lock on the back only, making it a lightweight carry. It opens easily with SpeedSafe® assisted opening with a handy flipper or thumbstud and carries tip-up or tip-down for right-handers and tip-up for lefties.
