D Rocket Design KatanaX Satin M390 Titanium Manual OTF Knife
The D Rocket Design KatanaX is a manual out-the-front or OTF that makes for an excellent daily carry knife. The blade extends and retracts from the front of the handle, sliding on rails much like a standard utility knife. There are no springs involved, just the mechanical movement of pushing and pulling of the button with half and full stops for various tasks. A sub-2 inch blade length makes this a fully California legal option as well. This version comes with a satin finished M390 blade and matte gray, Grade 5 titanium handle.
