SOGBP5: Bi-Polar - RescueSOG Knives
SOG Knives describes this item as follows:
The Bi-Polar is very capable. It's the first dual assisted knife with twin blades. Using patented SOG Assisted Technology™, each blade is propelled out once the operator has initiated the blade opening action. It might be the perfect rescue knife, whether used by law enforcement, emergency medical personal or in your garden releasing the grip of a tenacious vine. We think the Bi-Polar is the perfect combination of might and right with a fully serrated main blade, V-cutter, and glass breaker. Dual opening, double lockbars and twin safeties all work to lock the blades closed or double lock the blades open. Expand your world with the Bi-Polar.Specifications

works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As one opens the blade the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force and the blade will open on its own. The end result propels the blade out once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action.
S.A.T. works so well that right-handers can use their left hand equally well to open a folding knife (of course this works oppositely for lefties).
