Exactly. Outside of a balisong*, I wouldn't ever use a folding/retracting blade for combat.

If I did have to use one, it would be very carefully, careful cuts, no accidental backswings or parries, no stabby-stabby. And I own some very high quality "combat" folders that hold up exceedingly well to stress, but I still wouldn't want to test them with my fingees on the line.

* And even then, it would have to be from a knife maker I trusted as most balisong I've seen were cheap pieces of trash whose blade would snap if you look at them hard enough.
