BM3550: 3550 | Pardue Design

Small, light and with very flat profile and very fast action, this is an automatic with a lot of class. Small enough for covert action or casual recreation, this the false double edge and safety button add to the uniqueness and the price makes it accessible to everyone. You must qualify to purchase these items as you do with all automatic knives. The spearpoint blade shape of this small auto offers enhanced tip qualities.

A gentleman's automatic knife
Being a military fighter pilot for over 35 years I have used and carried many knives. Some as boot knives and others as pocket carry. These Mel Pardue Auto knives fit my needs extremely well. Small and balanced enough to fit just about any where but easy to access and employ. I highly recommend these in any blade combination.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
I have carried this knife every day since 2005 (black coated serrated blade). The issue I have had with the blade is the tip breaking when a coworker borrowed my knife to use as a pry bar. The knife holds an edge well and is easy to deploy from a pocket. Well worth the money.

Small and easy to carry
I use this everyday on duty or off. It is easy to carry and open. Weight is light but heavy enough to know its there. Price is right.
