New Monaco Auto Knives.

NEW Product - MAGIC BR-1
I'm proud to call Mike "Whiskers" and Denise Allen friends of mine for over 20 years. Back before the Pro-Tech days when I used to buy and sell a lot of custom knives, many a Whiskers custom auto did I sell........
It's great that all these many years later we are able to offer this fantastic Pro-Tech/Whiskers collaboration knife!
Upon first glance there is nothing about the BR-1 to make you suspect it's an auto (no button of course). In my experience 9 out of 10 people that you hand it to will NOT be able to open it until you show them where the trick spot is.
The BOLSTER slides up / this very deliberate movement is what fires the blade open and also unlocks it from the open position.
The new Magic BR-1 is a fantastic addition to our lineup - the moment you handle one you will see why it's our best selling new knife!
