Here are the Best Assisted-Open Pocket Knives all in one place. All 2 dozen of them. Different knife manufacturers make knives that are easy to open. Once you start to open one of the assisted-open knives, it takes it the rest of the way. These are not switch-blades. These are much safer and easier to use. The best feature is, you only need one hand to operate them. The mechanism that Kershaw uses their own “Speedsafe” system.
Here are my 2 favorites. One by Kershaw, and the other one by Kutmaster….
Some Kershaw knives are made in the USA, and some are made overseas according to the rigid specifications of the Kershaw-USA team.
The special feature of some of the engraved Kershaw knives is the SpeedSafe® opening mechanism. It allows you to quickly and easily open the knife with one hand. You just push on the thumbstud or pull on the flipper. The knife will open the rest of the way with ease. This is great if your parachute is caught in a tree, and so are you, and you have only one free hand. Even if you are in a less dangerous situation, the SpeedSafe® makes your life easier.
Kershaw is an American company based in Oregon. Their designs shown here are not tactical, but more accurately described as “modern”. All their knives are well-constructed, and the opening and locking mechanism works extremely well.
According to the Walmart website, they already sell Kershaw Knives. According to “Promogram”, an ASI newsletter, Walmart announced in mid August 2017 its Walmart PromoShop, an online way to sell imprinted items such as T shirts for family reunions. They also reported to have pens, mugs, and bags.
Will they be proficient in handling the detailed art problems in engraving business gifts? Screen printing T shirts is easy. Every town has 3 or 4 screen printers that do T shirts. Laser engraving expensive stainless steel items is an art and science. The imprinters that do those items, specialize in them. They don’t do shirts and pencils.
Will they be able to assist customers in designing a layout that is easy to read, and attractive? The current Kershaw Knives distributors are experienced in these details.
Multi-purpose camping knives probably never looked like this. However, it’s fun to imagine a cave man creating a portable tool that can cut, hammer, and scoop all in one neat device strapped to his loincloth.

The Kershaw Camo Scallion made the short list because of its printed camouflage design. It almost looks 3 dimensional, or glowing. The opening mechanism is Speedsafe assisted-opening system. It works very smoothly. Of course the blade is high quality 420hc stainless steel. Just so you don’t accidentally open the knife, it has a safety lock to keep it closed when not in use.

Buck® has many styles of knives, and keeps up with the current tastes of its customers. The most popular style now is the tactical knives. The rich black color of the blade and handle make this a beauty. The openness of the handle makes the weight low. The tanto style blade shape and the serration are both good selling points. Great for an every day carry (EDC), but still a very beautiful pocket knife.
Boker is a fine American company that manufactures knives all over the world. The Boker Leopard Damascus II Knife wins this award on several points. The damascus blade, the blade shape, and the origin of the steel, are all winning points. The steel was forged out of the barrel of the German army tank Leopard I. This gives it the Rockwell hardness of 65-67. The handle has amazing features of its own. It is made of hardcoated 6061-T6 aluminum and it encloses Ziracote wood inserts. This heirloom comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Kershaw Knives started in 1974. They planned to design and manufacture quality pocket knives. Their focus was “every day carry” or EDC knives. Knives that you would actually use, and keep in your pocket for emergencies. Not knives that would stay on a shelf, or in a drawer. They instituted the Limited Lifetime Warranty. Their knives are guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship for the life of the original owner.
Their use of advanced material and superb design has earned awards for Kershaw. Recently they have developed a 2-steel technology which puts 2 kinds of steel into the blade. One for the edge, and one for the spine for strength.
Kershaw is owned by Kai USA Ltd, part of the Kai Group of Japan. Kai has been a quality maker of blades in Japan for over 100 years.
