AA Sanders Handmade Split Bolster Auto w/ Fossil Giraffe Bone

Unique "Split Bolster Release Auto" Handmade by A.A. Sanders of Norman, OK with Fossil Giraffe Bone

A.A. "Al" Sanders (now deceased) was a specialist in Scale Release & Bolster Release autos. We did several knife shows with Al in the late 80's and early 90's..He was great guy and we miss him. His contributions to the automatic knife world is often overlooked. He was the first to implement the coil spring in a scale release auto. Several companies and other custom makers copied his "scale release" designs. He worked closely with Mike "Whiskers" Allen.

 This model operates by sliding the top bolster to the side. The Top Bolster is actually split in half, (Split Bolster Design), and when you move the bolster to the side this activates the internal coil spring. Top Bolster is hand engraved to help disguise the release mechanism giving the user total discreet auto action.

This model features Fossil Giraffe Bone Handles with Hand Engraved Stainless Bolsters. Beautiful 2 7/8" Mirror Polished Blade features ATS-34 stainless. File Worked on the spine of the blade and along the backspring, (both inside and out). Fossil Bone Handles have a High Polished Gloss and closely resemble Mammoth Ivory and contrast beautifully with the Engraved Bolsters. 

Measures 3 7/8" closed. Action is superb and lockup is rock-solid. Piece is a blast to operate and is very similar to Protech's new MAGIC auto which goes to show that Al was a very innovative maker, as this piece was made in 2007. This piece is Mint.. Includes a custom zippered pouch. Outstanding quality.
