This is a 8.5 inch Mikov Rescaled in wood. Great on looks and lots of action! It has a dual leaf spring system. The blade is stamped “Mikov ” on one side, and “Czech Republic” on the back side of the blade tang. The blade, bolster, lever, and extra thick liners are comprised of the finest 440 Stainless Steel. The reverse lever fires the blade, and it releases the blade to return it to the closed position. The Mikov knife is one of my personal favorites. You Will Be Happy with this Gem….It Fires Like a Rocket.
