I actually watched the linked video in your signature and I'll definitely try it out when I get a lockback, which might very well be the P4LW. Or the S35VN Native 5.
Maybe you´d like to try these alternative methods too (see links below, each shown one time slow, two times regular speed)
(Hope it doesn´t get annoying for some that I`ve posted these clips several times now already. I just think they could be helpfull for people not too familiar with backlocks
All others: Just don´t watch... )
I actually tried one-hand operation on the SS Delica I gifted my father for Christmas. It's pretty smooth, intuitive and easy. Guess I know what folder I'm buying next.
What do you mean by "SS" Delica?
"SE" like in serrated, or maybe the "SS" (straight spine) Stretch (and not Delica)?
Anyway, I find one handed operation backlock operation even easier on larger knives than on smaller ones. So if it works well with the Delica, it certainly also will with larger backlock-folders.
Generally one handed backlock operation most likely has a bit of a longer "learning curve" than other locks (I myself really just can´t recall how it felt at first, it´s just too long ago that I got my first backlock knife). But people who really use their knives (or just like to practice a bit) will get the trick pretty soon I think, and then this is in my opinion a very safe and easy to operate lock type
