Had a little 'incident' at Heathrow with this slim puppy
I've had this for a few months. I liked the idea of an assisted opening extremely thin knife for keeping on hand, even when wearing a suit. Who needs a fancy pen in your coat pocket when you can have this little guy?I agree with the other reviews that the safety knob tends to go towards the lock position when you have it in your pocket, so when you take it out to open with one hand it will be locked and you always need to check before opening. The other thing is, it's so slim that opening isn't as smooth as it would be with a full grip knife and, after a a little use, it seems to need a little oiling to keep the opening mechanism smooth and not stop the assisted opening feature.Oh, and the other thing... don't try to take this through London Hearthow airport. I made the mistake of changing my mind about taking my roller bag as carry on instead of checking it in one time and the security scanner picked it up right away. He knew it was a folding knife and the approximate size right away... they called the cops and had me step aside and explain to them why I had a locking blade knife with me... in a suit bag! Having a locking blade knife in public in the UK is illegal... I was facing a stiff fine, confiscation of the knife and possibly spending the day at the police station. I told them it was an honest mistake and I was just traveling back home... they were nice enough to come up with a workable solution... No fine since I wasn't staying the UK and no confiscation... but they had to see me mail the knife back to my US address... they even walked me over the the post office in the airport and helped me with the correct stamps...
