Here's a crazy auto deseign made by Linder. It's 8" long with a 3 1/2" blade. It opens with a grand wack and locks up very solid. The crazy part about it is it has no saftey. I can't imagine why Linder would make a knife this nice without a safe carry position. When I bought it I never dreamed it would be made like this. Anyway check it out it is a nice knife.

Wow ...that is different. I've seen similar patterns but the release button was more inset for safety.

Well that explains it :oops: There's a sucker born every minute. I don't mind a company doing what they have to do to make money. I just don't think they should hide the fact that it's made in China :x Now that will be my last Linder because I won't want to chance it ::td::
Click on the link below and scroll down a few inches. A similar knife is being sold at High Desert for 5x more than my wife paid for ours. The grind is different and the button looks flush. I wonder where it was made? My guess would be China as well ::td::

Here is a Klaas that fires hard and locks up tight, but the lever is hard to push.

I have flushed it with WD40 and oiled it, that helped some. Any thoughts on making it

work easier??

If you can get some lithium automotive grease down into the sear hole, it will help a lot. Open the blade to half way. The hole in the blade should become partially visible. Use a toothpick to shove some grease in the hole.
