Knowledge of steel and ergonomic of knife not at the level yet like u guys. So out of qn for me man.

I actually wanted to buy an SOG Flash II Tanto Blade folder but cos of the word "Assisted Opening" I don dare buy. I checked the description and it still requires one hand opening, juz that there is a mechanism to help project out the blade. Juz like those flipper folders leh.

Perhaps the Guru Bros here can give me advise on whether is it ok to buy?
Find the folder dam nice. I realised that I like Tanto Blades.

By definition many folders including SAKs are illegal by virtue of the spring that is in the handle. Most slip joints, all backlocks, RAM etc. have a spring for blade retention. Liner and framelocks however have no springs in them. If you view it in the "spirit of the law" it exists to control (outlaw) knives which are easily concealed and easily opened. This would render a SAK legal as it cannot be deployed easily. An assisted knife may be acceptable by AED but trust me if you were arrested and are found to be in possession of an assisted knife no email or letter from the AED is going to save you. Ignorance is not a good defense. All it takes is for a landmark case to go to court for all the collectors to go down in the same boat.

Don't really need good steel de la.haha. Even 1095 or O1 is good for use. Just camp by bladeforum's custom for sale area. Sometimes something comes up that you can't resist....
