That's interesting JSumm. One too strong, one too soft.
I tend to lean towards back locks now. And the CBBL on the Manix due to its strong tendency to want to stay closed. I also have the Kapara from Taiwan. It has the strongest detent of any compression lock I have had. I actually prefer that one. Now I have heard on this forum that some people have experienced light detents on the Kapara and hated it. It is odd that individual knives can very like that. Even from the same factory.
That is a big reason why I tend to prefer the back locks these days. Never had a weak detent on those. I have had very loose pivot screws from Seki back locks, but even then the back locks maintained a strong detent.
How long have you had the Watu? By the way, the Watu and Kapara are 2 of my favorites from a footprint standpoint. Basically the shape of the blade and handle, and how the choil is mostly in the handle.
