When a backlock locks in open position.

+1

And they all sound differently (probably true for any locktype, but at the moment I have exclusivly backlocks except one comp. lock PM2) - even in the exact same model!

I think I could tell most of my knives apart with closed eyes just by hearing the sound when they lock open..

For example my HAP 40 Stretch has a very bright and loud sound, almost like a baby-gun-shot, while my VG 10 Stretch sounds much quieter and softer (might be due to the fact that I´ve owned the VG10 Stretch for much longer, it has seen more use and probably is "gunked up" more in the lock area than the HAP 40 one)

The sound of a Military locking open when you cup your hand just right at the back of the handle so the sound echos out from inside the handle? :D

This is exactly what I wanted to post here... :D

I even said in the "Comp.lock Military 2" thread that one of the many things I prefer and would miss in the linerlock Millie IS the great "double click" when it locks open... ;)

Same here. It reminds me of the sound that an old and trusty bolt action rifle makes when you chamber a round. It's very distinct and there's not another sound quite like it.

I must have some Pavlovian training, because I salivate when the mail delivery truck approaches.

.....Boxer Rumble.

I do like the sound of a sharp blade zipping thru receipt paper.

Even as a former Evo X owner...there's no denying the sound of the boxer rumble, especially with a nice exhaust system :)

Rick, I saw that burnt orange beauty you had and I'm betting it sounded just as nice!

... the heavy CLACK sound of a :spyder: blade locking when it has been opened with some momentum. :)

On my K2 for example. Oh how I love this sound... :rolleyes:

I like the sound of walking on snow when it's really quiet. Of course we've gotten quite a bit of snow in the last week.

I love the sound of a Golden backlock sliding into lock.

I love the sound of song birds in the morning.

I love the smell of autumn leaves, as well as new fallen snow.

That's a medium sized hammer Sal. My Sahinler is a third as big as that one 110lb. It's the same size as the one Howard has. It's a 3B with 400lb falling weight. I know of some Nazels sized 6. They all have a great rhythm.

I watched the demo in Seki of Sword making the "old" way. 6 guys hammering the hot blade. They got the rhythm down. A nice sound.

Yessir, nothing like the old ways. The master smith taps to show them where he wants them to hit and the rhythm follows. A good team of strikers is a pleasure to watch and exceptional to be a part of.

Our friend Larry Harley was interested in working up what he called the "Anvil Chorus." A rhythm section using only blacksmith shop tools. That'd be very cool. Definitely got a beat you can dance to. People with the disease of steel have particularly acute hearing for such things.
