This unusual and clever knife (7" long open) looks like a perfectly straightforward folder, with natural horn scales, scrollwork on the spine, and the distinctive, graceful French Thiers curvature, but if you examine it closely, you’ll see that there is no fingernail slot on the blade, and no amount of pulling will open it. Very strange – unless you know the trick, which is to hold it vertically with the blade pointing up, and squeeze the blade shut at the tip. This springs it open. To close it, simply reverse the steps.
This is your secret. It’s really incredibly cool (the trick is a little ball bearing that rolls in and out of position). A gift to appreciate.
