    Which knife of yours has the most satisfying thwack when opening. Mine is between my Thorburn L44 and Shiro 111. I think the Shiro is my favorite. Something so satisfying hearing that loud hollow Thwack when it opens. What’s your favorite?

    For me , it's my Spryderco Military and Vallotton Sub-Hilt. Incredibly satisfying sounds.

    Hands down... If my hand is wrapped around the backside of the knife it is an authoritative KNOCK

    Sebenza 21, ZT350 and ZT456. Especially the ZT's though. They make people look around. Lol.

    Either the Techno 1 or the Xm-18 3.5. The Techno is the loudest when flicked hard.

    I actually like the sounds a lot of knives make. Then again, I also find joy in ASMR. I don't know if that makes me a connoisseur or a junkie. :p

    It might be more of a "kerchack" than a "thwack" but I really like the Civivi Naja.

    I find this mantra is pretty satisfying.
    When you don't lube the pivot it also has this metallic noise to it that I like. Check it.

    Got many more other honorable mentions
