Well the "intended" way is that you push the thumbstuff open manually to about 30 degrees then the spring takes over.

SOG extends the tang through the back on the handle on their "twitch" series knives, which is effectively a button, but not by the legal definition. You can usually also flick open assisted openers.

That is called a "flipper".

not my pic, but you can see how the blade extends out the back of the handle. run your finger down the back and the blade pops open

Thanks, slipped my mind. =\

It's an interesting idea, but I find SOG's fit and finish to be a little off at times. Trying to get a real benchmade auto but getting any sort of decent price has turned out to be a pain in the ass.

I do have a 3100, their 2 inch auto that im trying to sell.

An assisted opener the spring only works part way after you start to open the knife.

Think you pressing a button and the blade popping out vs you flipping the blade and a spring helping that action along. A well built knife will have the "response" in either case, but the assisted opening are both legal and in some cases safer/more functional.
