AO7 Indiana "German Secret Police" Knife
New old stock. Found in storage after Indiana Cutlery closed shop.
Handle is a rare dark green acrylic and brushed stainless steel, brass release button. Uses a kickspring which fires the blade. The spring mechanism can be removed. Two allen head screws open up the handle giving access to the spring underneath.
The same style and mechanism was imitated and marketed as an "East German Secret Police" knife years later in the mid-nineties.
This rugged automatic makes a perfect outdoor companion or a unique and rare addition to your knife collection. Measures 7¾" open, 440B HRC58 steel blade.
