    Finally finished these 2 assisted openers after long time off getting new shop set up. The tactical has a 4.5" 3/16 D2 blade and don't recommend this big of a blade as first assisted opener project as it is a lot of steel to move and the ball bearings changed to spring design. The TI-Elk one was much easier to build as it has Teflon washers like most production assisted openers, and lighter blade was easier to move. Both snap out nicely and have carried the tactical and like it as a blade that big makes short work of just about everything you put it to.
