Many budget knives are extremely large and bulky, not ones that you would like to carry around in your pocket all day. However, the Smith & Wesson SWAT Special Tactical Automatic Knife is extremely thin and is barely noticeable in the pocket. Once the blade is deployed the knife remains quite comfortable in your hands, whether or not you are gripping with your thumb on the scales or on the spine of the knife. The spring action is very smooth and the blade flips right out and locks up nice. There is a little bit of blade play but nothing out of the ordinary that you wouldn’t expect from a cheaper knife. The 440 stainless steel blade features a thin Clip-Point that almost looks like a dagger. The pocket clip is on the thin side, but it works great as long as you are careful not to bend it back too far. All in all, this is a pretty decent knife for the price. If you are looking for a minimal out-of-pocket knife that does the job, this Smith & Wesson Automatic Knife is a great candidate.
