You own a backlock with an internal stop pin. The Chap! If they used internal stop pins they would eliminate the need for a kick from a design standpoint. Some customers would still prefer one for safety reasons (I'm not one of them).
I was aware of that the Chap has an internal stop pin, but to be honest I never really looked into this design.
So I did not know, if the pin literally eliminates the need for a kick, or "just" makes the lock feel even more solid (and the Chap backlock is a step up in that regard to the already great lock of let's say the Endura).
/ I get that some people would want a kick for safety reasons (I don't). But this people should then never use linerlocks without any Ricasso (like the Tenacious), for a Linerlockknife with an edge all the way to the handle is certainly more "dangerous" for the fingers than a backlock knife without any kick or Ricasso...
