477-1 Emissary. This is another outstanding Osborne design. This larger version fits the male hand well. It can also be your EDC for work and rough operations. As an Auto-assist it opens and works quickly and quietly. It has ZERO blade play. The safety moved to the upper spine is easy to engage either open or closed. If you have small curious children around it makes for great overall safety. The only drawback to some is that it is somewhat heavy. I like a heavy feel in larger knives.
