I don't like thumb studs or holes (except on my Blurs, those work great, and on my Zaan, because the rest of the knife is so fantastic). I like flippers best, and I'm one of those heathens who will open an Axis lock by pulling back one side of the lock and rolling the blade down.
I wish the new Benchmade flipper was in S30V, I'd love to try an Axis flipper!
