Boker Magnum is hard to open /close, locks closed.
gerber fast draw
I agree. My 3 year old can figure out the lock mechanism of most locking knives. I would never leave her alone with one either. However, if she does get her hands on it, I like the fact that there is an added step to slow her down before I get it from her. There have been instances where the knife has come loose, and she has gotten a hold of it, usually while we are horsing around.
CRKT has some interesting knives that take a strong force on the thumb stud in order to open them. The Thumb stud is a button that needs to be depressed to open.
Not my favorite Knife company by any means, but i love the creativity. They also did work with Brian Tighe, and i love his work.
I don't know how hard you want it to be to open, but the Benchmade 585 Mini Barrage has got a safety on the handle.
Most slipjoints would be harder for a 4 year old to open the many knives.
Benchmade Barrage family.
Sog twitch ii. Locks closed or open. Nice compact and affordable blade.
I lost my mind and I have no time, so I must support the forum with cash.
Michael Walker designed a Bladelock knife for CRKT. It is no longer in production, but they show up from time to time.
Thanks for the input. I ordered a Kershaw Random Leek, partially serrated. We'll see how it is.
The Kershaw 1596 Spec Bump also has a lock to keep the blade from being flipped open.
If you can find one, the Kershaw Mini-Cyclone locked closed. It's discontinued but I think you can still find them for sale pretty easily.
The Benchmade, or I guess now the Harley Davidson, levitator lock series lock open and closes as well. Although they are pretty much a two hand affair, they can be done one handed with a bit of manual dexterity. Kershaw also has the speed bump (and spec bump mentioned above) with locks as well as the Ken Onion Centofante 1610, 1615. Most of the sliding locks on the Kershaws can be adjusted for tightness so even if they manage to figure it out you can tighten the screws and make it pretty tough for their little fingers. Schrade and S&W make some OTF assisted openners that have locks on them like the schrade viper. I wouldn't suggest them though if you think a leek might not be legal.
