Eric Glesser designed the Mantra 2. That's still available.
I concur and I will also add that frame locks and liner locks can fail under hard use as pointed out somewhat in #3. They can also open accidentally in your pocket or purse and cause serious injuries. All of this is well known but people keep demanding them.Vivi wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 1:58 amThree reasons.
1. No detent based lock keeps the knife closed safely for my uses and carry methods. I have had frame locks, comp locks and liner locks come open while carrying them. I refuse to buy any more of them for that reason alone.
2. Frame locks generally have steel scales. I prefer the warmth and grip of micarta or G10.
3. They're easy to unlock by accident
