I close auto-lawks CRKT almost the same as with a regular liner-lock. It doesn’t take long to learn how, either.
Note: I close all liner-locks with two hands to keep control of the blade as it moves toward my thumb. The knife is held in my right hand and rotated 90 degrees with the blade spine toward my right hand. The knife is also held in a way that keeps gravity from causing the knife to close.
I close auto-lawks equiped CRKT knives by holding the knife in my right hand with my thumb at the liner-lock. I disengage the auto-lawk with my right index finger, then disengage the liner-lock with my right thumb. This is easier with larger models.
All liner-lock knives are closed by pinching the spine of the blade with the fingers of my left hand and swinging the blade closed.
