Operates on a miniature roller chain.

Additionally, it features a machine hollow ground CPM-154 blade, ergonomic contour, natural button placement, and class III hard coat anodized finish.

I thought chain drive was the model, not the action! That thing is awesome!

Yep, got it. Very nice fit and finish. Sharp blade.

Only drawback so far is that the blade is a bit heavy and the deployment is consequently a bit less snappy than I prefer.
