if the nut were too large, like a wing nut, the argument could be made that it could be locked using one hand.

Yes, true. That would mean it is illegal to carry in public, but owning it would still be legal.

I like how big and heavy it is, a larger-than-life knife. A genuine pocket bayonet!

that's why you just need a button to hold the blade in place without actually locking it

I don't think you'd want to argue 'holding it in place' versus 'locking' semantics with a judge. What the law was intended to do is also important: allowing workers to carry their work knives without allowing switchblades and the like. If you'd stab someone with one of these in self-defense, some dickwad prosecutor might want to charge you with carrying a weapon.

The law here is perfectly clear.

The locking mechanism has to be either automatic or via the release of the "trigger" button/lever.

If you have to press another button, then the knife is legal.

But the lock button could be pressed with the knifehand, so it is a one-hand-knife... illegal to carry, legal to own.
