While I slightly prefer g10 to frn/frcp, I don’t like liners on any knives that don’t require them for the lock. The extra weight doesn’t really bother me, but liners don’t really add any benefits while creating space for hidden but pervasive rust to creep into the pivot. I’ll take linerless g10 all the way. I’m really looking forwards to the s90v and rex 45 native chiefs for that reason.
BRING ON THE MANIX XL SPRINTS AND EXCLUSIVES! And 10v or K390ify the Golden lineup, please.
