The "Assisted Opening mechanism" on this knife is weak. VERY Weak! I am a collector of knives and I have another "Guardian" knife that is a little bigger than this one and is NOT designated as "Assisted opening". I like the one I had because if it is properly ADJUSTED it will snap open if enough force is applied to the thumb stud. Its the same with this knife; I feel a assisted opening mechanism trying to help its just not strong enough. I am keeping this knife for my collection because I like the looks and the size is easy to conceal. If you want a true "Assisted opening knife" Stick with any of the following manufactures: MTech, WARTECH (the best by far for the money) and TacForce.
