Maybe I'm completely out to lunch today, but what Chinese knives feature a compression lock? Can't think of a single one. I thought compression locks were a Golden product due to the tight tolerances for manufacturing?Sequimite wrote:I like the compression lock and judging by the number of Chinese knives featuring the compression lock, it may be harder than some but appears to be easier than most.
You now need to get an ATR. When I exclaimed my appreciation for compression locks, another forum member told me about the ATR. From that point on I was hooked on Spyderco knives!peacefuljeffrey wrote:I have a Para Military, a Gunting, an Almite Salsa, and two Vesuviuses--these are Compression Lock folders, and I LOVE the Compression Lock!
One foreign made compression lock knife springs to mind in the "S". However, that's made in Taiwan.Praxis wrote:Maybe I'm completely out to lunch today, but what Chinese knives feature a compression lock? Can't think of a single one.

I'm an admirer of Spyderco's designs. Using them is like immersing yourself in music or studying a painting in a museum. I buy some "fine" art but my preference is for usable art.
I think "upside-down liner lock" is a bad way of describing the compression lock. Yes, it uses a liner shaped much like a liner lock, but its function is much different.Clawhammer wrote:I guess the simplest way to explain is that it's got a 'springy' piece of metal that you push to the side to 'jam' the hinge...it's kind of like an upsidedown linerlock...quite clever really...I like how even to this day people keep coming up with new stuff!!!
Anyone please feel free to jump in if I'm wrong... I've never actualy had a comp.lock knife!
