Ah, didn't catch that.

Blade is a little strange, does it have any sort of opening assist?

Yep, and it's fast and easy. You'll learn very quickly to LOVE that Warncliff blade shape for day to day stuff.

My only issue with it is it's kinda short.

Preferably 4"-5"

That kershaw is perfect though, just wish it was a little longer.

I've had shorter knives, but I've found around 4" or longer feel much better balanced.

I had one of those, but it went when I sold ALL my lockback folders. It actually worked well in the hand.


As opposed to that thing:

I could see blisters forming if you used it more than a few seconds.

How does the kershaw open?

Peg or button or something?

The little ramp thingie on the top/rear of blade is pulled/rotated with your index finger. It's pretty handy.

I think there is a bump on the back of the blade. If you have a local walmart they have them so go check it out and if you like it it is like 49 dollars there.
