Spring Assisted

Spring Assist / Assisted Knife Selection

A Spring Assist or Spring Assisted knife needs help from the user to get them started. Typically the user pushes or pulls a spine trigger, or a blade button, to get the knife about 20 to 30 percent open, at which point an internal spring takes over and opens the knife the rest of the way. Because they are not fully automatic, many states allow any user to possess and use these fantastic knives. We have an enormous collection of spring-assist knives from many different top line manufacturers.
