Ideally , you find the sweet spot between absolute safety and usability .
A very common complaint for Cold Steel Tri-ad lock folders is the difficulty of opening ...
You have to accept some risk for any very easy opener , IMO .
I have the same preference for a strong detent as well.
Many times I have dropped a folder and it flies open due to a weak detent. Flickability is not high on my list of features for a folder.
Saying that, a quality knife should have smooth operation and tight tolerances.
As long as they don't open before they hit my foot !
