LOL, maybe it's an axis tri-ad lock.Tally-ho wrote:Axis-lock.
I also just don't see Spyderco using a lock they invented in the Sage series so soon. Sal and Eric just seem a little modest for that.Holland wrote:That would be amazing, except I'd prefer m390 or m4. But this series isn't about the steel and will most likely never hange from s30v
Which is a bit of a problem for which we have no solution. We have the Compression Lock, Ball bearing lock, Caged Ball Bearing, Stop-Lock and another new lock for which patents are applied and we're working on a proto now. Really wouldn't feel right making them as Sages. A puzzlement.ASmitty wrote:I also just don't see Spyderco using a lock they invented in the Sage series so soon.

That's a cool idea!paladin wrote:not the most ergonomic or strongest choice...but a back lock with brass bolsters & walnut ( I know, I read the posts about wood scale stability already! ) scales ala Buck 110 would be a nostalgic choice which might strike a chord with many uninitiated Spydieaddicts...just a thought...
yea I know about the Sage 4, but I was referencing the Buck's more rearward-positioned lock ...not the midline position adopted on the Sage 4 in deference to Al Mar ...heck throw in a black leather belt sheath just like them Duke boys used to EDC!CarbonFiberNut wrote:Erm... The sage 4 is a back lock already, with bolsters and wood handles. Given that the Sage series is meant to pay tribute to LOCKING MECHANISMS and not handle materials, it seems silly to double up on backlocks.
Now, if you wanted to do that same combo in the chapparal, which is all about gentlemanly handle materials, it would be pretty groovy.
