View Full Version : Question about a knife action.

May 12, 2009, 09:46 AM
I have a cold steel AK-47 knife I recieved as a gift a while back. it has a unique thumb stud that catches on your pocket and opens the knife as you pull it out, it is the fastest knife action I have ever seen, IMO almost as fast as pulling a fixed blade out of a sheath.
my complaint is that the knife is way to big and has mall ninja written all over it. when I need my knife in day to day use I don't want to freak everyone out.

Does anybody know if there is a name for this type of action/thumb stud?

cold steel has a few knifes with this action but none of them are practical for day to day carry.
