+1 :D I hardly every Spydie-drop any knife and certainly never in public ... a nice smooth thumb-in-thumbhole opening, held slightly behind the leg works for me and keeps the sheeple happyThe Deacon wrote:Perhaps I lead too sheltered a life, but I've never yet been in a situation were rapid deployment would have been advantageous. I carry my knife loose in my back pocket and open it slowly and deliberately by placing my thumb in the Spyderhole and rotating the blade to battery. I've found that method to be 100% reliable with minimal risk of inducing incontinence among the terminally timid.
The problem is being within the law in so many places now. I called my local cops a few years ago to find out what a blade legal length was. They didn't know and were amused that I was concerned enough to call about it. I live in a fairly small town and there's lots of hunting and fishing and knives on belts around here. Their opinion was if you don't poke anyone with your knife you would be ok. :) But, the legal limit for FL is 3". So, if I carry my GB and draw attention to myself it could get confiscated I guess. I love the fact that my Sage1 blade is 2 127/128" long. :D-F1 wrote:I carry everything tip-up and use the cable tie mod so the blade opens as I remove it from my pocket. I use a lanyard on all my knives to help facilitate this, and because some of my pants have really thick pockets with leather, which makes the clip grab onto them like a vise tightened by Lou Ferrigno on PCP. I've found that 4" cable ties work best.
I don't worry about what people think, as long as I'm within the law. As long as it's the right blade in the right place and I'm not menacing anyone with it, they need to get over it. If people were to think rationally, they'd be more frightened of that 4,000-pound vehicle I drive, not a knife with a 3.5" blade.
It depends. I suspect there are ways you could drive that 4000 pound vehicle that might be within the law, but would still frighten your fellow citizens. Just because something is not illegal does not make it socially acceptable and engaging in socially unacceptable behavior just because you can get away with it is generally considered to be a sign of immaturity.-F1 wrote:I don't worry about what people think, as long as I'm within the law.
