    What kind of knife do you have? A liner lock, lock back,
    or a non locking blade.vI will not own anything but a
    liner lock;a

    Well, I own a crapload of knives. I have slipjoints (non-locking), fixed blades, liner locks, LAWKS, lockbacks, axis locks, compression locks, phantom lock, wire lock, and I'm probably forgetting more.

    Ummm.... why not?

    I'm a simple creamcheese man myself. Maybe a flavored creamcheese if I'm feely randy ;f

    Well, I don't know of any lock that inhibits one-handed opening, although it takes practice with the BladeLock.
    As to one-handed closing, that takes a little practice with different lock styles, but it can be done with all of them. Some of them, like the Axis, are even easier than a liner lock.

    Ok, here's are shots of the various locks out there, and this isn't even all of them.

    There's the BladeLock where the thumb stud is actually depressed to unlock the blade. The blade also locks closed:

    There's the phantom lock, which unlocks by twisting the scales of the handle apart:

    And then here's something I just threw together with a lot of other locks. They're pretty self explanatory. The LAWKS system is just an added safety to prevent disengagement of the liner lock.
    The wire lock is lifted to unlock, and the plunge lock is just pushed in.

    Looking through my folder collection, I couldn't find hardly any liner-locks, 'cept for a couple CRKT Crawford/Kasper folders. I like (and TRUST) the Spyderco backlocks the best...Especially the one on my Spyderco Chinook; That lock (and knife) is built like a TANK.

    Oh, now that Glockman has chimed in, I'm reminded of another lock: the REKAT Rolling Lock!

    TOTC,

    I'd have mentioned the REKAT Rolling Lock myself, but since they are no-longer making knives...;g.
