Have definitely always loved the look of the Kapara, but I'm in the same camp as others regarding this knife...liner/frame or backlock would have been best.
Any particular reasons for that based on the design of the knife and your uses; or just personal preference?
Sorry, I know you are not asking me. I think the CL in combination with smooth contoured CF does not provide adequate real estate to pinch to close the lock. I've dropped mine several times trying to close. Just have to focus more. The Micarta helps. You'll hear people complain about the slipperiness of the scales. I really think this is more of the smooth contoured scales in combination with the CL. You hear similar things about the Shaman. Smooth scales heavily contoured pinch grip to close the CL. I think a liner lock or backlock where you can still fully grasp the knife while closing would have been a better option. To compare, the Caly 3.5 has extremely glass-like texture or lack thereof carbon fiber scales. Being a backlock, I've never had it slip out of my hands while closing.
In use it's not a problem.

May your feet be warm and dry and your throat warm with whiskey. A knife in hand or in the sock band.
