NOT banned from TW... jealous?

For whatever reason, I can't stand the Kalashnikov. I don't know why but it just bothers me. The nice thing about a nice knife is you can abuse it without it getting destroyed. Just abuse it the right way. Don't use it for screwdriving or prying. Don't cut shit against metal or concrete. Avoid cutting cardboard. I've found that it really doesn't even make sense to cut cardboard when you can easily cut the tape on boxes and fold them up much more efficiently.
Also, I am not a huge fan of auto's or assisted open knives. I find them to be more of a hindrance than a benefit. A good knife will open just as fast as an auto with a flick of the wrist, thumb or finger. And if you really want to open a knife fast, look into the Emerson wave knives (Kershaw and Spyderco both have Emerson wave models for a cheaper price than a real Emerson blade)
But for a CA compliant auto, check out this Kershaw. It has a CPM-154 blade steel and meets the CA requirements.
