    Whoever made that has a brilliant eye.

    That's an Opinel type barrel lock?

    Yes, similar obviously.

    He calls it "Helilock".

    Incredible. It looks like an Opinel design, but without an place to catch a nail notch?

    I'm guessing that when you twist the locking ring, it pushes on the tang/ricasso of the blade to push it out a little? I wonder how that affects closing the knife. I suppose you would have to use the lock ring in order to close the knife all the way, so you wouldn't be able to use it like a straight friction folder.

    I really need to learn German.

    Unlike French, I usually think the accent sounds really cool, and I've liked the vast majority of Germans I've met.

    Maybe the PDF is posted is a good start :)

    (it`s the hardest language to learn......)

    Personally it cracks me up, when i hear our slingshot german speaking.

    ( my accent is minimal .... but i`ve lived in the sticks and in Oz for a longer time)

    Sorry but German is relatively an easy language to learn, the two hardest languages to learn are English and Chinese, followed closely by Hungarian, Finnish and Icelandic. I am learning Khmer which is spoken in Cambodia and is regarded as a relatively easy language to learn but it has 33 letters 25 vowels and 88 spoken sounds, more than any other language.

    cool knife though.

    Considering there is only on american (i`ve ever heard of) him being a former ambassador to germany during cold war times, who can join a discussion show - and only make like
    one mini-mistake per sentence (!)

    ... that`s after like 30 yrs of speaking.

    Everyone is very impressed, needless to say.
