A pocket knife is a super handy tool to carry on you every day.
But if you use a classic folding style knife, odds are you are tired of having to use two hands to open it. Not only is it tedious, it also limits the range of scenarios where you can effectively use your knife - there are many times where you only have one hand available and need to get to your blade quick.
And if you’re the type of person who uses a pocket knife every day, making two hands available every time you need your blade gets old fast.
The solution: A Spring Assisted Knife
But lucky for you, there is a solution to this problem: a Spring Assisted Open Knife.
In general, "open assist knives" use some sort of mechanism to help you open a folding knife, in place of manually unfolding it. Almost always, this mechanism uses a spring to assist in opening the knife, hence the term "spring assisted open knife" or "spring loaded knife". This allows you to flip open the knife with a flip switch or bead, for much quicker and easier deployment.
On this page, you’ll find many one hand opening knives, from the most affordable spring blades to the best spring assisted knives on the market.
But no matter which knife you choose, we’re certain that with your new blade, you’ll be better equipped to deal with the task at hand.
