Smith & Wesson SWMP4L Folding Knife Product Review

If you’re looking for more than just a basic survival folding knife, then the Smith & Wesson SWMP4L Folding Knife offers a tactical edge that gives you more for your money.

Made from 4035 black oxide carbon steel, the blade is highly durable and can handle tough materials and conditions. Because of its sharpness, it will also work well for piercing through materials or items, or even enemies. With the right level of maintenance, this knife is designed to last you a long time and be reliable in all kinds of survival scenarios.

The blade is 3.6 inches long, but the knife itself is not the smallest overall. It is 8.6 inches in total, but is still compact enough to fit into your survival backpack or be attached to your pocket. However, it may be too large for pocket carry, which you may find inconvenient.

It uses a rapid-release M.A.G.I.C assisted opening mechanism, so you can open it with only one hand, making it easy and convenient to use in any situation. The M.A.G.I.C mechanism is paired with a liner lock style of opening. It also comes with a safety lock; however this isn’t essential as the liner lock system should work well without any additional locks.
