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.

Received this knife a couple days ago. I've been playing around with it, trying to find the most comfortable position to open and close it. One thing I noticed when trying to open it is sometimes the blade doesn't come out all the way, so I have to close it and retry sometimes with success sometimes with fail. I'm not sure if I'm just doing it wrong, or if it's just defective. On a better note, it is sturdy, came sharp as hell, nice size pocket clip, and has a safety (which is not pistol style). I don't know if this will be my EDC knife or not, due to the knife not coming out all the way every time.

S&W H.R.T. Drop point

I saw this knife and suspected quality in the design based on the S&W label. Not disappointed in the least. Able to open and close with one hand, took some practice, but it works for me. Blade is stable when open and meets all my needs day to day. Handle is well textured and grips tightly without slipping. Nice carry knife for day to day.

Very nice knife. Very strong spring. There is a latch or button you have to press. To retract the blade

Its a great knife. My only complaint is that it is very loud when you open it. Not a click like other knives, a big smack.
