Favorite/special ways of opening Spydie?

Postby pyton357ru » Fri Dec 12, 2003 1:00 am

What is your favorite or your special way to open your Spydie?



I dislike the fingerprints on the polished blade(they just look very unneat), so I usually use "legal auto" techniqe -- you press front lock's lever and then even a slight wrist flick(or just lean, if pivot is oiled properly) would open the blade.

My favorite way is a variation of the thumb opening. I slide the tip of my thumb (the nail, ratherly) in the hole and I extend my thumb quickly. The knife opens like an auto. Sometimes I do the drop or the wrist flick. On compression locks (and Phantom lock&#8482<img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> I sometimes disengage the lock with the finger and shake the knife open (and closed as well). <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Also, sometimes I use the ring finger to open the knife in the reversed grip.

I use the round hole in the blade...I assume that's what it's there for... <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

I sipmly grasp the handle and flick my wrist. The blade pops out so quick, you'd think it was an auto. Thanks to the pocket clip I can do this while drawing from my pocket in one motion.
