    When I was doing a bit of knifemaking a while back, I made one just to see if i could. pretty cool but wouldnt want to carry it around in my pocket all day. If it opened in there it could be all bad easily.

    Spring assisted is legal but as has even pointed out they don't really have a use. I saw one being used and liked it as a gimmick, used it a few times and then went back to a standard folder. Can still open and close one handed so no benefit of the spring, if anything it's a nuisance as when closing you have to push against the force of the spring

    Anyone used the chisel-ended Bahco Wrecking Knife?

    Yep, just a fan of knives. Its not intended to have any real use, thats why Im buying so cheap. I dont need it, its just a gimmick.

    @Scouser

    You'll like this line up of Mora/Bahco knives. Like the large-handle-small-blade ones, great control.

    Blast from the past as when I was 8-9 yr old I bought knife no. 10 in the line-up (2nd from left in the image) with money I'd saved. Still have the half moon scar where I cut my left index finger with it. Boy did it bleed. I then had to live it down with my (irritatingly observant) siblings that I'd covered the distance from shed to house without a sound, and only burst into tears on entering the house. )-:

    If you really want to have the stiletto type knife spend the $ on the ti-lite. Quite a handy lil tool (hunting blade it ain't). Although having disassembled and acid stone washed the blade and liners on mine, be warned the bastard copper bush/washers make it a pain in the ass to get a nice smooth "flick". BTW not spring assist just has the "flipper" well designed and placed.
