    Ditto--and I've handled them all.

    I vote for a fixed blade. Nothing opens faster than something that doesn't close in the first place.

    I used to own a Tasman, with a rivercity neck sheath and man I could pull that knife out of that sheath and have it open in a split second. I am sure any Spydie with the proper technique can be opened fast. Just my $.02

    In all seriousness. The fastest deploying folders I own have an Emerson wave on them. It's pretty much open the same instant it leaves your pocket.

    They can be a tad intimidating if you open them that way though.

    Exactly. Aside from a wave feature, nothing beats a good middle finger flick with a compression lock.

    In my Spyderco family, my Yojimbo 2 rockets out faster because the blade it heavier.. Over all my Emerson Desert Roadhouse could not be physically any faster to deploy.

We're talking less than miliseconds; infinitesimal amounts not even worth mentioning in my opinion..

    I can understand discussing "ease of opening" (due to a nice stiff detent), but speed? They're ALL fast!
    Am I missing something here because I sure dont understand
    I just went through all my Spydies and tested the opening speed of each one. I can't think of one situation where the difference in speed between the fastest and slowest would have any impact...

    My Tenacious is the fastest in my collection. But it Has barely ANY detent. I hate it.
