*AO-001 - Assisted Opening - DDR Design - Modern Tanto - Parts Kit
*AO-001 - Assisted Opening - DDR Design - Modern Tanto - Parts Kit
Stock# AO001-SST-1
SEE: QTY DISCOUNTS
Price: $49.95

Designed by legendary knife designer, Darrel Ralph, the AO-001 Assist is the world's first assisted opening knife kit. This model represents the very best in performance and precision for knife makers and customizers. Simple to build and amazingly precise, this knife represents the very best in kit design, material performance and production craftsmanship.

The design of the AO-001 is a pocket-sized fastback flipper with a modern tanto blade grind. The black G-10 handles are 3D milled and feature an excellent grip texture surface. The modern tanto blade has a 600 grit satin finish and is made with AUS8 stainless. All stainless parts are heat-treated and designed to the tightest tolerances. The assist mechanism is tight and opens the knife with a "snap". 

This model can be built as a manual flipper or as a fully assisted flipper by using (or not using) the supplied assisted mechanism parts. It is fully functional either way. The locking liner design is strong and secure and features serrations on the contact point of the lock bar. It also features a fully-reversible pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down carry.

This model is designed so that a beginner can complete it. But for advanced makers with skills, this knife kit is a case study in high performance assisted opening mechanics. Also, customizers can use the existing handles as templates for material experimentation. This kit comes with all parts necessary to complete and features a padded gift box.
