How are Spring Assist different from a Gravity Knife or Switchblade Knife?

Gravity or Switch Blade knives feature a button, level, or other type of switch that releases a spring pressure to automatically open the blade. On a Spring Assist knife, there is no separate button or switch. Instead, you apply pressure to part of the blade to begin the opening process. This is usually a small bump of metal which sticks out under the knife, making it fast and comfortable to use. Once you press on that part of the blade, it automatically opens and locks into place. Since the action of opening the knife is started by pressing the blade metal, instead of a button or switch, it is considered to bypass the laws which ban Switch Blade knives.

Great Knife.

I got this knife and am very pleased. It is a double liner and opens nice with the assisted opening, the bad is you will have a hard time with out the assist. I showed this knife to a couple friends and now have to order 2 more for them.

A real battleship as far as knives go. This very robust tactical rescue folder is nice quality and comfortable in the hand. I love mine and believe it is definitely worth your consideration.

Good knife but I wish the handle was plastic they have better grip its a little heavy with all the parts on it. The window break is not really needed holding the knife reverse style is not recommended due to that but overall I like it

Everything about it is fantastic except one thing. The spring isn't very strong so when I go to open it it doesn't quite make on its own so I have to flick it to get it lock.

very sturdy, long lasting knife, exactly as it is seen in pictures. occasionally, i have to tighten the bolt that holds the blade on, but it's not a big problem. the spring is the best of all the spring-assisted blades I own, and I have had this knife for 2 years. great purchase from trueswords!

Got this knife as a surprise gift for my friend and he was ecstatic when I gave it to him, being that he had been looking for this particular knife in lnife shops for months to no avail. Of course, I checked it out before I gave it to him ;) it flips open with great speed and is very well constructed. It had 'tac-force' on one side and 'high carbon' rather than being blank as it is in the photo, though this was not a problem. Once again, a very good product from true swords

an overall godd knife came razor sharp and in only 2 days opens quickly and smoothly seat belt cutter works great and so does the window breaker but i have a big problem with it the blade doesnt close all the way so when you reach into your pocket you might cut yourself

The item I got wasn't exactly what was shown in the picture or the description, but its still nice.
The blade is only a tad bit over 3.5 inches long, not 3.75 inches, and the blade has "Tac-Force" printed on it instead of being blank as shown. It does have a tanto point, but the unsharpened edge is shaped a little different than pictured.

However, it is still a nice knife. It flips open quick, feels good in your fingers, and the blade is sharp.
