Compression Lock versus Whatever
Can you find it and can it cut? :eek:

I can pick just one so I went with what I have the most, frame lock. But I would have liked to pick three, compression, back and frame.

Given that this is in Off Topic, I went with Other because I prefer deadbolts over entry locks. ;)

I went with blade. Not sure what you meant by that, but I'd love a blade that locked my blade. Even more so if I could get a blade that locked by a blade that was itself locked by a blade.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

With 4 votes for the back lock it's clear nefarious forces are involved.

We might need to investigate that... Repeatedly.

I just threw it to a tie with my vote for backlock. I've been called incorrigible many times, but I'll try nefarious 😊

First thought - "Don't go there"
Then i thought about the lock type on knives i have owned through the years and picked back lock.

It looks like the back lock mafia has been paying bribes and using witness intimidation.
