My bad, I didn’t read all of the replies before responding to the original post. We seem to have had the same thoughts about the idea though.
No worries, I did not mean to say that you repeated my post. But rather that you could phrase the point better than I did, so people could actually understand it...
/ Anyway, generally for me one of the advantages of comp. lock and liner lock is exactly that they allow designs with very tall blades compared to the height of the handle. If a designer makes full use of this, I think the exact same handle just could never house a blade as tall if the design switched to a backlock (on the other hand: If one made a super thin
backlock knife, this design could probably not be changed to a comp. - or linerlock (or CBBL) without having to get a bit thicker too).
(Not a reply to you, but generally): Despite being a backlock - guy: I am not sure why a lightweight Yojimbo should not still have a comp.lock? Constructed just like in the Para 3 LW?
I think especially people who might not actually use - and OPEN (!) - their folder often, but rather carry it for sd, will certainly be quicker and more reliable when having to open a well tuned comp.lock knife than one with a backlock (especially when under stress) - true for thumb rolling, flicking and inertia opening imo.
