But before we get to that, let’s talk about the Decoy’s more obvious qualities. For instance, it has a 2.5-inch Wharncliffe blade, which is an excellent shape for a general utility knife; great for everything from breaking down boxes to opening mail. The straight edge is extra handy for tasks where you might need to bear down on something you’re cutting. The black-oxide blade finish adds a discreet look.
To open the blade, just pull back on the flipper. This is a manual opening knife, but it opens easily—and one-handed—thanks to the extra-long flipper. The handle is glass-filled nylon with a textured and rubberized inlay to enhance grip. A secure locking liner keeps the blade open when in use and releases easily when you’re ready to fold the blade back into the handle. The oversized, decorative pivot adds to the Decoy’s good looks.
Now about that secret. Hidden inside the handle is a handy pair of pincers. These are built right into the handle of the knife, so there are no worries about losing them. They’re handy for picking up and holding small objects. Access the pincers with the slider in the back of the knife’s handle. Just move the slider toward the butt of the knife to pinch and hold.
A custom open-design pocketclip completes this unique—and uniquely handy—pocketknife.
