There’s no doubt about it, spring assisted knives are quick and easy to open. That doesn’t mean buying a non-spring assisted knife is a bad idea though. Just like some of us prefer a manual transmission when we go off road, there are those that prefer folders that open manually. Today’s knives are packed with options, so you won’t be disappointed with either design.
Thanks to ingenious designs and quality workmanship, non-spring assisted blades can be just as convenient as spring assisted models. When equipped with thumb studs or flipper levers, they can be opened smoothly and easily with one hand. With dual thumb studs, they can even be opened using either hand.
Once opened the blade locks in place, keeping you safe as you tackle tough tasks and many models allow for closing the blade single handed also. With a little practice, you’ll be able to open and close the knife quickly and easily, and that’s what matters.
Bold Off-Grid Models
If you decide on a non-spring assisted knife, consider making a bold statement at the same time. Check out the Seadog Reverse Tanto, this pocket tank has a thick ergonomically designed handle with a glass breaker and a badass blade shape that will impress and intimidate.
Another bold option is the Fat Boy pocket knife. This compact knife is built solid and cuts like a blade three times its size. It comes with a convenient button in the handle that disengages the liner lock, allowing the user to close with one hand.
Both knives make great options for everyday carry or as additions to your collection, either way, they’re bound to impress.
