Schrade SCHOTF3CB Viper OTF Assisted Folder with Aluminum Handle
Vipers are known for their quick, decisive strikes that immobilize enemies through their venomous bite. That's why it's the perfect name for the Schrade SCHOTF3CB Viper OTF Assisted Opener. The blade on this knife bursts out the front with a quickness and ferocity that only the viper can match.
Coming in at 3.5 inches, the blade is made from 4034 stainless steel and features a double-edged, double-recurved spear point design. That only adds to the serpentine look and feel of the knife.
Here's how it works: Once you push the slider on the side past a certain point, the assisted-opening mechanism takes over and does the rest of the work. To disengage the knife, you release the lock mechanism and pull the slider back. A side safety device keeps the blade from accidentally opening in your pocket.
Integrated into the black aluminum handle is a glass breaker and a pocket clip. Always be ready to strike with a Schrade Viper OTF.

The Schrade Cutlery Company was founded in 1904 in Walden, New York. The quality of the cutlery produced was unique to the industry at that time. Imperial Knife Company, established in Providence, Rhode Island in 1916, grew to manufacture a full range of value-priced folding pocket knives.
In 2003, the strength of Schrade's design concepts and engineering continues to move forward with exciting, cutting edge product introductions and a respect for tradition. Representing the newest of the new is Q3 Technology for Quick, Quiet and Quality offering a series of multi-functional folders designed for maximum performance. And in recognition of its heritage, Schrade's Custom Collaboration series celebrates the uniqueness of handcrafted design in their partnerships with the nations finest custom knife makers. Blending technology and tradition, the company continues its leadership position in the global cutlery and tool marketplace.
Key to Schrade's strength as a knife maker is the workforce of talented and committed craftsmen, including third and fourth generation employees. Learning the trade from parents and grandparents, they pass along the valuable knowledge, skills and pride necessary for the consistent production of quality knives and tools. That dedication and spirit lives at the 93 acre site in Ellenville, blending the decades of experienced hand craftsmanship with some of the most modern technology available. Schrade continues to grow in leaps and bounds due to our well earned reputation for quality and value, responsiveness to an ever changing market place, innovative new products, diversification into new markets, and customer service second-to-none in the industry.
