Mr. Emerson, I am curious about something and am asking the opinion of you as the authoratative source. Should a quality automatic knife by a reputable manufacturer be stored in the open or closed position? The reason for this question is - If the knife is under spring pressure when closed to enable it to open at the push of a button, would storing it in the open position (if stored for a while) make the springs retain their tension longer?...or does it matter? If it doesn't matter - Why? Thanks in advance for your answer.
