In a world where most out-the-front automatics are expensive and heavy, there is a demand for a lightweight and affordable OTF auto. Enter the Benchmade Shootout. This knife was designed with law-enforcement and tactical personnel in mind. It is the perfect weak-hand backup for anyone concerned with gross-motor deployment under stress. The handles are CF-Elite, a carbon-fiber-filled nylon that increases rigidity and allows for reliable deployment. Made in the USA and stocked full of features and premium materials, the Shootout Automatic OTF Knife packs a punch.
