    I was looking at Benchmade Adamases and i was wondering
    If the AXIS auto could fall under Assisted Opening
    I know it says "Auto" I am just wondering if it could work if i decide to carry one for work (I live in CA) Tried to do some google digging didn't find much to help.
    I've been carrying Emersons, Just wanted to see if it was even possible to carry a Auto Adamas. Since I really like the design of the Adamas and heard amazing stories from my friend who own one. I know there is a manual version but i manage to get a deal for a Auto version much cheaper than the manual version.
    Not gonna fidget it and go waving it around.

    Thank you, Have a good day.

    Autos are illegal to carry in CA unless the blades are under 2 inches. I don't think the Axis auto could in anyway be seen as "assisted" since you aren't touching any part of the blade to initiate the opening. You pull on the Axis mechanism which is in the handle so I don't see how it could be considered anything other than auto. I guess you could take the spring out and use it like a regular Axis lock folder.
