What is an Assisted Opening Knife?
An assisted opening knife is a folding knife that uses an internal mechanism to completely open when you push a flipper or thumb stud. An assisted opening knife is at times confused with a switchblade. A switchblade will completely open when you push on a lever or button. An assisted opening knife won’t entirely come out until you release it to some extent and then the spring pushes the blade out of the handle, either on the side or in front.
