manix 2 g10, LOVE THE CBBL, and because the lw is blade heavy and i dont care for the cheap feeling plastic and i hate lockbacks
and cheap feeling plastic, well honestly just about hate all back locks or mid locks
I know we´ve discussed this in the past already, my friend..
But it still puzzles me how strongly you quite often word your dislike for backlocks - you must really, well, as you say, "hate" them. Don´t get me wrong, that´s ok of course (since backlocks are just "things" and not hurt by that, nor is anyone else
), but I wonder if you meanwhile gave a good backlock a fair try over a longer period of time?
I just can´t imagine for myself that I´d literally "hate" one of Spydercos locktypes (in fact I really like all that I´ve tried, just still have preferences among them) and so I am just curious.
Sure, a backlock takes more "getting used to"- time than CBBL, comp.-,liner-, and frame lock imo, but then it is a very versatile, safe and in several different "methods" quite easily and safely (even with "all fingers out of the blade path") to operate lock that also offers that nice, smooth closed back (which can be a pro for some, and con for others of course!).
Again, no offense meant (!), I am just curious!
And I generally nunderstand how one can dislike features on a folder: For me for example it is deep carry clips on longer folders, though I still would not say I literally "hate" those.
