Upon first glance, there is nothing about the BR-1 to make you suspect it’s an automatic knife (no button, of course). The BOLSTER section of the handle slides up. This very deliberate movement is what fires the blade open and also unlocks it from the open position.
A nice variety of aluminum handle BR-1 are available, and with its handy 3.125 in. Blade, smooth discreet action, and deep carry clip make carry knives.
We were honored to be recognized with the Blade Magazine 2016 Investor/Collector knife of the year award for our BR-1 with full Bruce Shaw engraving, gold, pearl, and Damascus.
