The Terminus is an all-purpose slip joint folding knife that is legal in many places. It features a quality 3.0-inch CTS BD1 stainless steel blade and G10 handles. Slip joint knives are easier to clean, maintain, and have fewer mechanical bits to get dirty and cause problems. The versatile clip point BD1 blade features a straight edge and a nail nick for opening. Textured G10 handles and jimping on the blade offer improved control during use. The small guard on the blade prevents accidental closure of the blade on fingers. Its slim profile makes it easy to carry with or without the reversible low-carry pocket clip. In many places around the world including parts of Europe and cities like New York City, folding knives that lock open are not legal to carry. Knife carry laws vary by region, so make sure to consult your local laws for specific details. Some of the stricter laws prohibit carrying a knife that have long blades, locks open, or can be opened too easily with one hand. Unfortunately, most quality folders have exactly the opposite: longer blades, easy blade opening, and secure blade locks because they appeal to the majority of people.
