This has to do with the draconian Euro knife laws, doesn't it? I think it would be nice for our fellow Spyder Knuts from Europe, but I personally wouldn't buy it. Not my bag of chips.

I'd rather see a slip joint (BTW: love that shape arzh)
If it becomes a friction folder, how about a simple sliding lock that engages onto a pair of pins (like thumb stubs)?

here a custom friction folder by sacha Thiel
soooooo cool friction it could be very cool in :spyder: version :D

WOW.

That is beautiful.

arzh - what is the price on something like that?

Though, as I look at that, I immediately wonder what it would look like with a dropped edge, and I think that would fit well with the roots of the pattern, as a knife you might use to enjoy a meal in the Provencal.

As I think about it, I would say collaboration would be the way to go, variety and differentiation are pillars in the success of Spyderco.

And, this ball detent really excites me..... And what if you could manufacture it with the retention method slash lock, which could then be removed by our friends over the pond? Best of both worlds?

I have to say, I am very much enjoying different locks, so this is an exciting idea.

I know nothing of the ball detent idea, and that may be a great idea, I don't know....

But, I was just trying to imagine a lock that would work with shape of the finger of the friction folder.

And this is what occurs to me, a centrally located Compression Lock (as in, in line with the pivot, much like the current Compression locks, though maybe shifted a bit....), with a release tab not on the spine side, but the other side (terms fail me).

The two versions could share most of the engineering, with the Compression Lock version requiring just a bit more.

Sprint one, then the other....

Just brainstorming....

eh, non locking aint my thing. All because I had a small tiny 4 function swiss army when I was a wee little boy out camping. Picked up the knife backwards, and when I tried to use it, it closed right on my finger. Dang that was sharp. Still have a big, whits scar on my finger.

Oh my childhood :) . in conclusion, I only carry locking knives. Im much more careful now anyway, I have just grown accustomed to them.

We're waiting on a Deviant Friction folder to test the concept to see if it might be effective for production.
