    Just curious 2 know about legality, quality & lethality of the auto-eject, aka 'lock-back' knives in your state. Any knife that with a trigger/button depress shoots a 3"-4" blade straight out of the front from an enclosed handle is not a knife U want 2 B found carrying, owning or using in any form in WA, even using one as a life or certain death option ='s perp will prolly live, sue & walk and U will go down hard. Found most of the models R poorly made, [China, etc.] handled & played with 'em inside stores outa state a long while back, found 'em on sale in places like Asia, but for a serious knife I could not see how that 0.1 secs of a blade popping out the front gives U much of an edge (surpise factor/faster 2 deploy?), especially if the first time you try a solid thrust, slash or parry the handle breaks off the blade. Ooops! IMHO it's a gimmick but if any patron has specs or a JPG of a good auto/lock-back, please post link, not a switch blade that swings 90' to open, $3 a pop junkers same as a butterfly that I nearly lost 3 fingers ******* with until I threw it into a trash compacter, good riddance! I'd love to see a real pro model, say maybe with a 5lb 'punch' spring-loaded blade say 1" wide, I could see a military/PMC use for a good well made version that has enough push power that U just hold the haft to the perp, hit a button and 3"-4" of double edged very sharp pointed end dirk does the penetration, good steel version that is E-Z 2 keep outa sight & buries into the BG with no overt fancy tweaks from U as the dude using it. Looked around da net, not impressed, 4-get Bud-K = $20-50 junkers, won't ship to more states than I care to list. Always want what I can't have.

    Kershaw makes a great "assisted opening" knife. I've got several of them, have put a couple of them through a lot of abuse, and they keep on working.



    Here's a couple of photos of the knives I carry. They have models that are both larger and smaller. This model is called the "Leek"

    Thumbs up Clarification OTF's.

    Nice cutters but the nipple on the blade indicates it's what I carry, a thumb assisted folder, yes they deploy fast if U practice. Any blade that swings out 90 degrees to lock into place whether by a spring action release (switch-blade) or a thumb flick assist is in the same family, except a switch-blade is normally illegal because they R much faster to deploy but generally very poor quality body, spring and crappy blade, whereas a thumb folder are normally better made, legal carry (most states) clipped inside a front pants pocket with the knife inside and the clip just showing on the outside pocket seam line. Below is the model and web site for what I am talking about, blade does not swing 90' in a circular sweep to open, it just shoots right out of the front. Called OTF or out the front. A good spring will push it thru a 1/2" piece of plywood and even go right thru some body armor. Once U press/slide that button it locks into position VERY fast. U have to press the button to retract it manually. The Catch 22: LAW ENFORCEMENT/ACTIVE MILITARY ONLY! (normally)
    Some special-ops (Euro/S. African,) get them issued as a CQC back-ups for a pistol out of rounds with no time to reload. Hope that helped distinguish the difference.

    At $395 a pop this is nothing close to any knife Jo-Public ever normally gets to tote!

    That is a very nice bit of kit Palmach; the Excalibur by Piranha. Same family of state of the art (never cheap) single purpose killer CQC blades. And it auto-retracts too, how totally bitching!!!! Not 4 me to own or use here, ='s jail time in WA :-(
    Wonder what other states allow a person to carry one? As a back up, or alternate 1st use weapon to a pistol (boot, belt or pocket carry) I wonder what would be faster when a BG is hiding around corner and jumps U? Not much time to pull, aim + fire, but personally I would go for that blade as a 1st use equalizer, drop BG with a serious stab wound. Just push it unopened against center of mass & hit the button, let the spring do the push 'n poof! If that fails U now have a great blade deployed for any more agro. Back away then think about moving to the pistol if the BG still wanted to/or could even cause me any more grief after a King Arthur style pneumothorax. Anyone who is suddenly within a 3 meter circle of U with bad intent probably would not give many a chance to even use a shooter (open carry states not included) unless my pistol was already out and ready, not my normal way to stroll out for a cool evening walk. I could deploy that honey in 1-2 secs from a pants pocket concealed carry, or 1 sec faster than my XD-9. Very nice and way lethal. I'm starting to think Florida must be one very nice state, in envy of course!
    My Regards,

    I keep looking at them at every gun show, but have yet to take the plunge. I currently carry an assisted tactical.

    The automatic is definitely a plus in the scenario you describe. I might have to give this some more thought.

    Regards back at ya.
