The new Starter's design is machined and complex yet smoothly functional. The Blackwash finish gives it a rough-and-tumble look, yet the finish isn't just for looks. The coating provides an extra measure of protection for the metal, and the Blackwash helps hide any additional scratches you put on the knife during normal use. The Starter is equipped with Speed Safe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. It opens neatly with the built-in flipper or thumb stud. A liner lock safely secures the blade open during use, and then closes easily for storage or carry. The all-steel design really shows off the Blackwash finish. The Starter includes our deep-carry pocket clip so the knife rides comfortably low in the pocket for discreet carry.
