SHORT ON BLADE, TALL ON STYLE
For 2016, we made something special for our neighbors to the south. And since we’re in Oregon, of course we mean California. So for you, California—and for anyone who prefers a shorter-bladed auto—we made the Launch 4. The Launch 4 sports a blade of just 1.9 inches, nice and legal. And pretty handy, too.
The blade is high-performance CPM154 steel. This powdered metallurgy steel has more uniform distribution of carbides—so it takes and holds an excellent edge, provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. The blade is stonewashed finish. Then to lighten the Launch 4’s weight, we made the handle and integrated backspacer of durable aluminum, anodized in black.
The Launch 4 opens with a push button, recessed so that it is level with the flat of the handle. This is a safety feature and makes it harder for the knives to accidentally deploy. For left-handed use, press the blade-release/lock button with your index finger instead of your thumb. The Launch 4 has a single-position pocketclip and carries tip-up.
Automatic knives are dangerous and should be handled with extreme caution in all circumstances. Comply with all local, State, and Federal regulations regarding the purchase, owning, carrying, and transportation of automatic knives.
