Tekto’s Spry Is a High-Performance Sub-$200 Automatic OTF Knife

Presented by

OTF knives can make a solid — and decidedly tactical — addition to any everyday carry loadout, though getting your hands on a quality, automatic out-the-front blade that can actually withstand the rigors and abuses of everyday use typically comes at an exorbitant price. Tekto has now delivered an exception to this rule with a high-end, high-performance, American-made OTF model with a powerful double-action auto mechanism at a surprisingly accessible MSRP.

Christened the Spry, Tekto’s newest auto is crafted around a 5.25”-long, textured low-profile handle that’s precision-machined on a five-axis CNC unit from aerospace-grade aluminum and outfitted with a double-action deployment/retraction mechanism that’s operated via a knurled thumb-slide. Concealed inside the handle is a 3.5” double-edge dagger composed of American D2 blade steel rated at 60 for hardness on the Rockwell scale.

In addition to a deep-carry pocket clip, the Spry’s milled handle has also had its bottom-end equipped with a glass breaker. The Spry’s action has also been perfectly dialed in, with an extremely rapid blade deployment that doesn’t feel like the knife wants to jump out of your hand. And, despite its rugged and robust construction, this OTF manages to tip the scales at a surprisingly svelte 4.47oz — making it that much more conducive to everyday carry duties, though the Spry is just as well suited to tactical applications as it is EDC use.

The all-new Tekto Spry Automatic OTF Knife is available now for only $200. On top of free two-day FedEx shipping, Tekto is also currently giving HICONSUMPTION readers an exclusive discount of 15% off when using the promo code “HiC15” at checkout — bringing the Spry’s price down to just $170.
