Just wanted to post what has become my favorite carry knife of all time after a few mods. I am a lefty and last year at the Blade show in Atlanta I went in with one purpose: Find a lefty friendly assisted opener. After searching EVERY booth in the show I came up with 2 options. One was a SOG trident which was sorta lefty friendly and the second was the Benchmade 581. Between the two, I chose to go with with Benchmade. After that I added a kydex wave to the top so that it opens as I pull it out of my pocket (took about 10 minutes to do) and then added a paracord lanyard using the "lanyard" knots so that it doesn't flop around that much. If there is interest in a pic, let me know and I will see what I can do. But lefties out there, check out this knife. Its superb.

Have you looked at any of the Benchmades with an Axis lock? They are pretty much ambidextrous.
