for you, or me, or someone who knows that they know how to do that, sure.
I find it's something I can fix myself fairly easily, and as I have explored Chinese budget knife brands I have got a lot of experience in, filing down lockbars for a cleaner lockup. Others can probably say the same.
So it's fixable, but to me, that's something that makes it hard for me to suggest the brand to a casual user. Especially for a buck under a benjamin -- for $100 that shouldn't really be an issue.
Lockup is just something that Chinese knife makers are a little behind on mastering, because knives sold domestically in China don't have locks. They're building their competency in frame and liner locks, etc by selling to the West. So I've seen them coming along for a while. The thing is, I'm already kinda sitting here bored, going 'I have a bajillion knives with liner and frame locks already'. Frankly I think more of them should leave frame and liner locks behind and start turning out more knives with plunge and barrel locks -- like Ganzo with the good old axis lock. And it's not just Ganzo doing those. If Tonife can do a kickass axis lock, if I can buy a SRM Land with an awesome axis lock, if even Y-Start nails the axis lock, then others can get it right. All three of those companies along with Ganzo have released EXCELLENT axis lock knives under $30, so it's not an issue of price.
Same with button locks -- if Tangram can do a fully functional button plunge lock under $40, lots of others can do it.
I wanna see Real Steel, Reate, Rike, WE Knife, Bestech, Kizer, TwoSun, I wanna see all these companies start offering button and axis locks.
