Let's start with the blade. It's a drop-point, but definitely not old school. While the flats are satin finished, the grindsboth along the cutting edge and the deep top swedge are black-oxide coated. On the practical side, the coating helps protect the steel. On the less practical side, it looks outstanding. Also outstanding is the Induction's Hawk Lock. Once the blade is open, the Hawk Lock automatically locks it into position. When you're ready to close the blade, pull the Hawk Lock slider back toward the knife butt and fold the blade in. Simplicity itself. The Induction's handle is lightweight-yet-strong anodized aluminum with a textured faux G-10 front insert for sure grip. The pocket clip is reversible for left/right tip-up carry and there's a pre-drilled lanyard hole for additional versatility.
