Audax-OTF - SMU
Latin adjective meaning "bold, daring, courageous".
Precision machined with our distinct and recognizable aesthetic and styling; characteristic of a purpose driven, lifelong design direction and ethos. This OTF features a classic American clip point blade silhouette, ergonomic arcs, and the purposeful fluting and texturing of the modern machine age as found in high grade tools to precision barrels. The Audax features a fully contoured, type III hard anodized 6061-T6 aluminum handle, titanium billet pocket clip, GID inlaid slider, and internal lanyard pin. The action uses coil springs placed in linear orientations for a rapid blade deployment (and retraction) when seconds count. Coming in at a mid-sized 3.5" blade length, the Audax is a high standard automatic for users that need speed and quick blade accessibility when on the job and on duty.

Awesome blade, great action, and sharp as heck! I love this knife so
Much I bought two.N
Fantastic machining, hard firing dependable mechanism, premium steel, razor sharp out of the box, surprisingly light and slim. OTFs are expensive from any manufacturer and coming out of PDW as an in house custom this is a steal. I'm going to buy a second one.R
I’m still pretty new to knives but I have other otf brand knives and the Audax has the best action by far. The milled pocket clip is a very nice touch too. For the price and what the knife is, imo is a win in my book.J
This knife has a quick and smooth action.This is my first otf knife and I'm absolutely impressed with the craftsmanship and design of the knife. I dont get to carry it until my wife wraps it and gives it to me on Christmas but I do get to play with it until then. One of many PDW knives I own but this one might be my new favorite also the extra swag you get with the knife is the icing on the cake.
Thank you for the review!
