HTMMFDRAXD55DLCAO: HTM DDR Darrel Ralph AXD 5.5 Assisted, DLC Coated
HTM Knives
The AXD knife has been a market best seller since Darrel Ralph introduced it in 2002. It has a unique design shape that fits your hand perfectly no matter what size you hand is. The back of the frame has a built in Skull Cracker. Along with it good looks goes the wicked tanto blade style. The Handle has an Aerospace Titanium knife frame, with a 3D carving engraved into the frame. The solid frame makes out frame lock knife one of the strongest out there. The S35VN blade steel is one of the world's best grades of steel for edge longevity and corrosion resistance. The opening action comes with either a manual flipper or SAO (Spring Assisted Open). The spring assisted opening is similar to a switchblade knife in opening speed and action but does not come with the illegality problem of many AUTOs. Proudly made in the USA and featured in the blockbuster movie "The Expendables".

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Titanium Handles

Value your safety? Don't buy this one.
DO NOT BUY THIS KNIFE ! Impressive to look at with great materials: that is all. I am a knife user & had great hopes for this one. Tip down being a bad idea I had considered repositioning the clip until I discovered the weak & erratic spring involved. In the pocket, with any slight nudge or bump to the release, it will open approx 1.5" at the tip and hold that position . A nick in the leg told me about it. A mock up & attempt at point up carry would result in worse injury. Imagine shoving your hand in your pocket for change, with the blade open to greet you. I should have seen the sign when in closed position the tip edges out to expose itself & will painfully let you know it has done so. This is a good idea done badly. Would like to have known about the 'relaxed' opening. The ease of opening this knife with a flick of the wrist MAY violate it's legality in California. Sticking with my Benchmade Barrage for now. Owned 3 (keep misplacing them), 2" shorter but hasn't turned on me me yet. I bought on and am working with a machinist to make it useable.1st review not positive so not surprised about not allowed. The facts are this knife is uses high quality materials and is poorly designed. Tip down is because it opens easily IN the pocket. The blade tip is so zero tolerant flush with the case and the spring so erratic and weak that it will work its way out and into your leg. In the right pocket, slightest tap or bump on release and the blade opens approx 1.5 inches. In left pocket and pushed all way back only the tip need be worried about. With machinist, working on point up carry for right pocket by clip to butt at slight angle to push tip into seam and shave an 8th inch off tip angle to fit case better. Actually may allow blade to open as withdrawn from pocket without thumb work. Slight flick of wrist allows for opening that may result in Calif. illegal if pressed by law enforcement.
