    Seconded! Even when I'm the one holding the shotgun, it's still pretty intimidating! ;D

    Try the ZT300 some time. That ain't a "click," it's a "thunk". I've heard car doors that didn't sound that solid.

    if you ever want to hear a "click" check out the CRKT Hissatsu! i think you could hear mine form about 100 feet away... I use to pull my knife out and fiddle with it whenever i was bored, but then i noticed that strangers usually gave me the "should i call 911" look whenever i did it. now i just play with my knives in private.

    Satisfying? Meh, it's a little more than that. There are few other sounds that I could compare it to, one of the sounds not being appropriate for the forum, and the other being a 1966 Pontiac GTO being started.

    ah.. yes. i do that.

    some knive i basically only have because of the sound they make.. like kershaw leek.. the slick scchhhwik sound it makes.. aaahhh. :)

    and i do play with all of them time to time. to keep a feel for them how they function.. (thats my excuse and im sticking with it!) it has absolutely nothing to do with the sounds they make when they open up.. honest! hahahah ;)

    world is full of nice sounds..

    racking an pumpshottie.. hmm.. yes an intimidation factor is there thanks to over use in movies etc..

    but for me, personally, i think in total darkeness, there is something even more sinister hearing the kinda rusty spring slooooow cocking sound of two hammers of side by side shotgun.. *creee-clikk* followed by another *creee-clikk*

    "no, i do not want to look whats behind door number 2" hahah.

    My Sage1 locking open is an extremely satisfying sound and feel. Solid, yet buttery smooth and fast. Even my girlfriend likes it; she routinely takes the Sage out of my hand and flicks it open and closed while we're watching TV. :smitten:

    As bad as this can sound, I always tell others that, for me, a knife is a tool first, a toy second, and a weapon a distant third. When I'm not using a knife as a cutting tool, I have been known to fiddle with them, I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Yep, that IS universal "Oh F***" sound. It is terrifying and I have only heard it from friends racking the gun.

    I figet with my BM 912D2 more times than I care to count in a day. I love the sound of the heavy D2 blade locking into place.

    the sound of a flipper after a good wrist flick reminds me of my first flipper. a cheap-o smith and wesson that kind of looked like modernized big fat stilleto with aluminum handles (possibly blade too lol) with holdes drilles out of the scales to lighten it up and the whole thing was mossy oak camo. can you say tacticool?

    I do enjoy the sound and practice of flipping open a knife. Funny thing for me is that I carried lockbacks for years. Then made the evolutionary leap to assisted linerlocks with flippers, and stuck there for a couple more years. Now I've recently slide back down the ladder to unassisted flippers. What this leaves me is every once in a while I casually flip the flipper, only to have the blade stop 3/4 of the way through because I forgot to flick my wrist. Still working on retraining the muscle memory I guess.

    Yeah, I daily carry either an Evo or Evo Jr. Constantly catch myself fidgeting with it. Calming. :)

    "Satisfying?" No, never thought about that seemingly innocuous sound quite in that context; however I have considered it to be at times no less that disconcerting.

    Those times are when the sound emanates from someone else that I consider to be outside of the circle of people that I trust; those whom I have knowledge of their character and values that they would not capriciously belabor the triviality of that innocuous sound in the presence of others.

    So, I am not the only one who feels that way? What a relief. Eventhough it has no lock, my new Spyderco UKPK clicks very pleasantly. It resonates.

    My BM Osbourne tickles me everytime I play with it.

    My SRM 763's tickle me all the time too. Perfect EDC size, shape, and grind with a decent steel for about $10. I like being able to use something witness little fear of damaging it.
