Opening and closing the blade is similar to the action on the Daktyl predecessor. To open, press the front lever mechanism with your thumb and rotate the blade outward until it fully extends and securely clicks into place. To close the knife, press down on the lever to disengage, then swing the blade back into the closed position.
The Daktyl comes with an added Slide Lock mechanism. When the knife is in the closed position, sliding the lever at the top of the handle backwards clicks it into place and reduces the chance of it opening unexpectedly. When open, sliding the lever forward locks it into place, which is exactly where it will stay until you reverse the procedure to disengage and return it to the closed position. The blade is completely ambidextrous, rotating both to the right and to the left.
