The CBBL is nice, but the backlock might be a tad stronger, but that is beside the point. We will not have a rugged backlock design, incorporating the enhancements from the Native lock. It will have a strong bias to stay closed, which the Comp lock, liner lock, nor frame lock do not have. Many of us feel it is safer (from experience, I might add).This is a good thing if you carry a knife in your pocket. The CBBL is fine, but it does not quite have as good of closed blade retention. Still, it is a good lock. But, many of us prefer a properly executed backlock. It is more intuitive, and it is easy to use with gloves. There are a host of other reasons.
The good thing about this is that we now can choose a Manix 2 that is mission specific.
