Watch "The Knife Show" on TV to understand the technique -
It is easier on the heavy handled knives like Schrade than on those with light handles like Spyderco. Of course, so many have a thumb hole or pin to flip them open with that it is pretty much a moot point.
Also, nearly every Kershaw is spring assisted, which is perfectly legal, and is as fast as any switchblade or balisong one can have.
These silly laws where never meant to make anyone safe...they were only meant to target a perceived type of people within communities.
