Can the Kizer Fiest be “waved opened” from the pocket

Since it’s a front flipper, I was wondering if the jumping can create enough friction to open the blade when rubbing it against the pocket seam. Like an emerson opener knife

any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

It's kind of funny you're asking this because I had a hard time even front flipping the Feist. Out of all the front flippers that I've handled, the Feist has been one of the most difficult for me. It seems to have a lower front flipper and stronger detent than most other front flippers that I've handled. It definitely can't be waived open.

These guys are right...can’t be waved open. And I can open FFer’s a lot of different ways. :) Front flippers are my favorite opening method.
