    I think that they'd have to re-engineer (weaken) the spring in order to make them comfortable one hand openers. The current 110 spring holds the blade closed with such force, that I find it difficult if not nearly impossible to thumb open with a stud. I have a custom 110 from Buck with a blade from a Bucklite Max (dual thumb studs) and the studs are worthless. No way I can open the knife using them.

    I'd spring for one or more of what you propose, if they'd make them a tad bit easier to thumb open. :thumbup:

    I have tried the stud once and found that tho difficult I could thumb it open ...
    if there were a notch in the sides it was not too bad to open ( this based on the 110 liner lock)
    tho much closer to the clip
    many times a stud over the max hollow of the frame was easer to thumb

    I see lots of studs on knives on the evil bay but again to each his own ...

    Dave, the LL is a totally different animal. If you handle and try one out, you'll see that there is hardly any spring tension. I believe that was by design in order to make them easy to open with the thumb stud. I have a 110 with a "notch" or "recess" next to the stud and it's only marginally, if at all, easier to open using the stud. The spring is just too strong.

    Ive got a one-armed bandit stud on a Titanium 560, it works, but it's not a "flick" open by any means!

    I quess the Buck 110 is a classic design, but not a modern tactical:D

    Don't know... You could add a large wave that could be either used as a wave or a hole/thumbstud which you can open with one hand.
    I have a waved endura, I find myself using the wave to open it as much as the spyderhole.

    I know there would be an agreement with Emerson to use the wave, but I think a waved 110 would be incredible.

    I too have grown fond of the Kwik thumb (previously sold under various names, like the "one-armed Bandit). It adds greatly to the usefulness of the 110's,112s, and 422s as well as the 426s or any serviceable folder for that matter that lacks a thumb stud.

    I have some one armed bandits and put them on my alaskan guide 110S ,works really good as a one hand opener,but more importantly,it serves as a nice place to set my thumb while skinning deer.LOL

    Hmmm... A waved 110 with finger grooves and a pocket clip. S30V steel, stainless steel bolsters, and black G10 or black canvas micarta grip inserts. I'd buy one in a heart beat.

    I would like to see you knife in production,but if we are going all out in the dreams department,lets have them use titanium for the bolsters and back spacer,coated in the dlc coating,that would make a sweet,heavy duty type of "tactical 110"

    Titanium would make it too light. I like the solid weight of a regular 110.
