How is the lock on this knife?
If you've ever used an axis lock on a benchmade it's very similar.
You can pull back the locking mechanism with your thumb and forefinger and flick the blade open, pull back again and flick closed. Very handy, no pinched fingers. Assuming it's of the same quality as the Axis lock it should be pretty rock solid.
The locking action is similar to an axis lock, but I'd say the tactile feel of the axis lock is much nicer. It feels weighty and solid, yet smooth.
The lock on this knife just feels like a spring loaded button that you pull back to unlock. Kind of light and insubstantial feeling compared to the axis. It also lacks that satisfying heavy click that you get from the axis lock as the blade snaps open.
But I have no doubt that this lock is solid, none-the-less. I have no worries when I use mine, and I've never heard on this type of lock failing.
