Rare French Made Le Superoto Front Opener w/ Stabilizer Switch

This Item Has Been Sold!

Very Rare Vintage Front Opener from France The Le Superoto

Unique among front openers in that it features a unique "stabilizer switch" which when the blade is open, allows the user to lock the blade down like a drum so there is no movement at all; (even without the stabilizer switch it locks up better than a Microtech or Benchmade!). It is a lightweight piece constructed of compostion handles (plastic) with aluminum trim on the sides, however don't let the lightweight construction fool you, this is a well thought out, complex front opener. The bolsters are chromed and the 3 3/4" stainless blade is mirror polished with a slight "swedge" on the top edge.

Blade is etched in script: "Le Superoto" on the blade. Early production piece from the 70's no longer manufactured. Measures 4 3/4" closed. Positive fast action. It is the only model that features the unique "stabilizer switch". Extremely clever mechanism never repeated in any other knife. Rare piece in mint condition. A must for your front opening collection! Rarity scale is a 9 out of 10..Includes a custom zippered storage pouch.
