    I'm cosidering buying one of these two knives for everyday, self-defense carry. I love the look/features but since I can't see them in person, I don't really know how well they work.


    My main concern is - are they easy to open with one hand? I train quite a bit with knives since I practice Krav Maga but some can be difficult to open, especially under stress. I've fallen in love with the assisted opening mechanism of Kershaws but I'm willing to try a normal one if they open easily.

    Any comments would be appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Personally I would not buy any knife I could not handle first. And you need to decide where you are going to primarily carry it. Size, shape, weight,ease of use and material used are all important. I carry mine inside the pants, belt clipped to my pants behind my right hip. This way my belt hides most of the clip and it's readily available. That said. Width of the knife is important for comfort and the handle material is important so it doesn't snag on my clothes. Every aspect of a knife you are considering needs to meet with your approval including ( how easy is it for your hand to get the blade out and ready for work) and that can't be done until it's in your hand and you test placing it where you will carry it and flicking the blade open.
