    haha these are slow ways to open a knife. hold your hand up like you're gonna say oui oui, if you're right handed you want the knife horizontal opening towards the left,
    left handed is for the opposite. move your arm and flick your wrist left and move your wrist back fast and hard to flick the knife open, of course for lefties its the opposing.
    practice a bit and figure out where you need to neck on the knife, sturdy skrew with no easy opening knife? neck down towards that skrew and get a harder grip on the knife.
    get enough practice and you'll be open the knife faster than the blink of an eye.

    Thanks what making sure I was using an efficient enough method and #3 was how I naturally opened it. Iโ€™m a fan of automatic knives and accidentally ordered a manual ๐Ÿ™ itโ€™s not bad at all but autos have that extra fun factor and I hate how thumb studs look. Thanks mate

    there are more ways, especially depending on the knife (spydercos – middle finger flick open)
    i know 2 or 3 ways with flipper tabs alone.

    just get creative, you can find unique ways too.

    btw the last one doesnt work on knives with a detent. thats the whole point of a detent lol
    (you cheated when using the griptilian via its axis lock lol)

    One other way I open some of mine that have a high sitting/proud blade, is to hold the blade then flick the handle – problem is you need to do more work to get it into your hand once deployed. It's very dependent on the amount of blade you have exposed, I understand it works well on Spyderco's (I'll be able to verify that once my civilian arrives) but can confirm that it works a treat on my Gerber ez out. Good video man ๐Ÿ™‚
