While the P'Kal knife is designed for this activity, it has features that also translate well for everyday carry. The CPM S30V blade curves to a point and it feels natural and comfortable making pulling, downward cuts. Protruding from the top of the blade's spine is a removable Emerson Opening feature. The device popularized and patented by Ernest Emerson of Emerson Knives. It functions by catching the back of a pants pocket when drawing the knife, opening the blade in the same motion. Spyderco's P'Kal is designed for reverse grip use with a formidable choil on top of the handle that holds the little finger when gripping, affording better dexterity and control. Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock sits above and behind the blade. The ball bearing component is housed in a plastic cover that's accessible for both left and right hand opening. P'Kal clips in a pocket with a steel wire clip and carries tip-up.
