The new, Rapid Response blade-assist knives from COAST Products are designed by world-renowned custom knife maker Ron Lake, the Rapid Response folders may be one of the best blade-assist knives ever manufactured.
It starts with the completely re-imagined SAT (Smooth Assist Technology) system that's unlike anything ever made before. The system features a roller-cam built into the blade that the assisting spring rides on. Just give the thumb stud a nudge and the blade snaps to attention, fast and effortlessly. Rapid Response knives provide a new level of safety too. COAST'S Max-Lock system completely secures the blade when it is closed, and double locks the blade when it is open. Built to last a lifetime and covered by the COAST limited lifetime warranty, these knives have fiberglass-filled nylon handles for maximum strength, a hand fit and great looks. Heat-treated, stainless-steel liners make the knives very strong and corrosion resistant, while the open-frame design lowers weight and makes cleaning easy. Most important, the Rapid Response blade is finely crafted from 400-series stainless steel that's rigorously tested to ensure top-quality heat treatment, and each blade is tested for sharpness. They have ambidextrous thumb studs and pocket clips that are easily reversed to the other side of the handle or removed.
