The Cathode is a 2.25-inch tanto blade with a flipper for SpeedSafe assisted opening for one-handed opening. It?s a great knife for everyday carry for righties or lefties. The handle is a cold-forged stainless steel that displays a repeating pattern. The Cathode isn?t ultra-fancy, just ultra-functional. A top grind adds a touch of style, while heavy jumping on the spine ensures a secure grip?especially when you need to choke up on the blade for detail work. The Cathode locks up securely during use thanks to the solid frame lock. Black hardware, including a back-spacer with additional jumping and a reversible pocket clip, sets off the Cathode?s all-steel good looks.
