I second this. I have one axis lock knife, and the Omega springs have broken 3 times so far. The CBBL is superior, but honestly, the compression lock is perhaps the finest pocket knife lock in existence currently.
It's easier to open and close than an Axis/CBBL, is less suceptible to blade play, and makes disassembly a breeze. Fully disassembling an Axis knife is a royal pain in the you-know-what.
