All around best assisted open knives ive seen are by Ken Onion for Kershaw. I own 2 models, the kershaw boa and the kershaw tanto. I believe gerber also has assisted open models as well, but Id go with the kershaws. The edge has held up since day one, and I use it almost daily @ work. Great knife, great designs, 5 stars.

Are we talking about assisted or automatic ?

Assited you flip open and usually a spring helps.

Automatic you push a button and it opens

I have a kershaw one. I push a small button on the back and the blade flips out. Its only a 3 and 1/2 inch blade but its fun to play with, and really quite handy. I think I spent around a hundred bucks for it.

I have an assisted Kershaw that I have carried for a few years and it gets used quite a bit for pretty much anything, opening letters/boxes, gutting deer, removing zip ties, whittling, etc...the blade is OUTSTANDING at holding an edge and I have had any problems at all with it. I got mine at Wal-mart for around $50 and I believe that they still carry them in either serrated or non-serrated.

Ken Onion by Kershaw are manual assisted and designed for fast opening. Kershaw has pared back their tactical knives. Theyre not as large as they used to be. I have a Kershaw 1410 stainlees, P-10 scales, titanium frame, assisted. Its huge. They dont make this style of tactical knife any more.



Ken Oinion are smaller.



Oregon allows automatic (switchblade), but it needs to be carried visible -- with a pocket clip or in a belt pouch. I have a classic Italian stilleto, and a tactical full auto. Stilleto is 11 inches.



Benchmade makes tactical assisted knives.



Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT)



Cold Steel.



Camillus



Case



Gerber, but Im not impressed with Gerber knives.



Or you can go to a gun show and get custom stuff if you know what youre looking at.
