The 6-1/2" unit includes a number of features designed for maximum convenience, such as a large blade release knob that allows easy access for blade replacement and storage. A spring-loaded hinge lever on the bottom end of the knife allows for quick and controlled access to the blades, and keeps the knife halves from separating.
