Unfortunately the example in the shop had an impossibly strong detent - I simply could not open the knife with one hand! Two other guys there tried and had similar results - all of us had to open it two handed. Presumably this breaks in after a while? Bit of a shame considering what a pretty knife it was...
I'm sure it would loosen up over time. My Tuff was like that, literally took both hands to open, but its smooth now. Just had to break it in.
I'm still on the fence about the Myrtle. The price is high enough that it would be nice to be able to hold one in hand before deciding, but I'll probably wind up with one eventually.
