so ive had my poliwog for some time now and have always appreciated and loved its uniqueness as far as shaping and ergonomics go. in fact it is in my opinion the most comfortable grip and im surprised more full "four finger choils" arent implemented in designs.
however today for the first time i tried testing the lock strength and to my surprise i could over come the ball bearing lock and snap the blade back in quite easily. in fact i can even do it with one hand after a couple tries.
i am not too afraid of the blade coming back in during use because of the ergonomics, and how the knife is designed to be used. but i am wondering if this is why they discontinued the knife? or do i have a faulty one?
both of my manix 2 with ball bearing cage locks do not do this
