Deadbolt looks very interesting.
i like the blade shape. what's the price.
Nice system. But if holding the button takes all the tension off the blade, as it appears while closing in the video, to the point where a wrist flick would open it, it would be construed as a gravity knife in certain states.
I have a Stanley knife like that and I don't carry it for that same reason.
I'm assuming CRKT has prevented the gravity knife concern, but until I get my hands on one I can't say positively.
Isn't that basically the same thing as the Gerber Paul knife. Those have been around for about 40 years.
Blade HQ has them on pre-order for $120, expected to ship in a few days. Sadly, the blade is 4116 at 55-56 HRC, and the knife weighs 6.3 ounces. And it's made in China. There's no way I'd pay that when the made in USA Spyderco Manix 2 XL is available for $23 more with an S30V blade. That Manix is basically the same size, has the same handle material, and is an ounce lighter.
Hiss! For $120 I'd look elsewhere.
