I'm always interested in heavy duty knives just for the sake of overkill, so I'm interested to know why the liner lock was chosen over the back lock, which I thought was a stronger lock, or even a frame lock.
I also like to compare knives and the best difference I can see here is the strength of the pivot pin area which takes added pressure, kinda like the extra long Barlow bolster; and the pivot strength also has to step up to suit that beautiful, powerful blade geometry.
I have to admit that if I suddenly need to pry something and all I have at hand is a folding knife then that's what I'll use.
Is there anything I'm missing of the commercial grade additions over other knives?
Of course the big shocker was the low price for this knife, but I suppose it's just an introductory price.
Oh and one more thing, I always avoid serrations but if I knew how to sharpen them properly I'd probably grow to love them.
And one more thing, big congratulations on Best Work Knife. It certainly stands out front and center.
