How are Spring Assist different from a Gravity Knife or Automatic 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.

good buy Reviewed by Chris on Aug 03, 2013   5 out of 5

Nice looking smaller size for dress or professional to carry. A gentleman's knife as I've seen others called. Would make a nice gift, looks more expensive than it is. Not bulky, tight opening mechanism, it helps to oil lightly, should wear in. Sharp blade. Could be a little easier to open, but like I said, it should wear in and loosen up. Not slow by any means.



Not Smooth Reviewed by Greg on Jul 27, 2013   2 out of 5

Actual blade is high quality and durable. Speed assist opening mechanism is slow and doesn't open easy. The mechanism is advertised as smooth but is anything but that.
