Give Your Folding Knife Assisted Opening Capabilities With Zip Ties

Cardsharp folding knife goes full metal

The GERBER GDC Hook Knife

Tactical knife company Emerson is known for employing a “wave shaped feature” on their knives that opens the knife as it is drawn from a pocket. You can do the same trick with many folding knives using zip ties. To do this trick, your knife must have a hole in the spine (such as with most Spyderco knives) and a pocket clip that when worn the tip of the knife points up. As shown in the video above by YouTube user WilliamCutting08 you’ll insert a zip tie in the hole and ratchet it down as far as possible. You may have to use a second zip tie if the first one moves wiggles around after being locked down. Cut off the excess zip tie material and you’ll be ready to go. To use the assisted opening feature, you pull the knife out of your pocket at an angle so that the zip ties catch on the edge of your pocket and open the blade.

Knife Rights To Appeal Outrageous Ruling in NYC Folding Knife Case

As was true with the Cardsharp2, the 2.5-in (65-mm) stainless steel blade is ready to slice and dice with just three folds. The blade technology was originally designed for the medical industry, and while you might not be doing much out-of-pocket surgery in the future, that background makes it sharp enough for all kinds of tasks, including food preparation and cutting through automobile seat belts in an emergency. On the negative side, the new build has more than tripled the price over the Cardsharp2.

I loved the concept of a customizable Swiss Army style pocket knife / multi-tool, but found that the product itself needed a lot of work to be even remotely usable. Now theres an updated version of the Switch that seems to have addressed some of my concerns and complaints. This new set comes with 12 interchangeable tools that include: a blade, wood saw, serrated blade, bottle opener/flathead screwdriver, micro flathead screwdriver, micro Phillips screwdriver, file, Phillips screwdriver, pliers, scissors, LED flashlight, and mirror/tweezer/pick/pen. From the images, it appears that theyve ditched the plastic tools and that theyve updated the other tools to be a little more robust.
