Massdrop x Eric Ochs Orca Titanium Liner Lock Knife-vague in the lock details?
more_vert
I have pulled the trigger on this item, but now I'm not sure as there are few details as to weather the lock on this is structured to last. Does it have a steel insert lock face or a carbidized lock face. Have they even decided what they are doing. I trust Mass Drop to produce a good product as I really like the job done on the Ferum Forge Falcon. I trust Reate to produce a good product to protect their name. I am sure that Erich Ochs wants a good result. Why such a lack of detail on this issue? I this trying to build some suspense? I thinks sales could be higher if this information was known. Anybody have more information?

Given that it is not a frame lock, it seems to me that a carbidized lock face is sufficient for the knife. Opening and closing my knife probably 70 times since I've had it for several days reveals absolutely no lock stick on my copy. Also, the resistance is just enough with the liner-not too stiff. I'm able to one-hand the release and then the little detent ball seems to just glade into place. The lock-up point/resistance point when closing with one hand is sufficiently early but not too early to have the knife go past that point with easy effort of the index finger, followed by simply grasping the handle on both side and with almost no input at all, the blade drops shut and there is no rebound bounce from the closed position. It stays in place and does not bounce out. Hope that answers your questions on that area of concern. AF

If you put in SEARCH the name of Jonas and Carbidized You will find the post where Jonas said it had a carbidized lock face.

Thanks man. Noted. I still feel like this should be something included in the actual description body, though. It's a pretty important factor here that a lot of folks have asked about, I'm not sure having to search the comments for standard information about a knife is best practice.
