Anyone have an opinion on this type of locking mechanism vs the bar you release from the back, usually a half Moon cut out.

Edit: looked up the proper names, lockback vs liner lock/ frame lock

Bought it for $13.04 Last month. It is a little big for EDC, so I haven't used it much.

I only have a few lock back knives and they don't get much use- they are also quite cheaply made and most I have seen don't have a pocket clip. Most if my liner locks have bound up if you are trying to chop something very thick like as a hatchet but can be pried back unlocked.
My Edc's have liner locks and pocket clips and part serated.

This is a flipper only deployment with a frame lock. You get a strong detent with solid lockup and reduced frame thickness. Lockbacks are an older design and are generally not as smooth as framelock. Lockback is stronger but for the tasks appropriate for this knife the frame lock is strong enough. Personally, I don't prefer frame lock knives because they are not as convenient as other locking mechanism for one handed operation. However, almost all flipper knives utilize the frame lock, because the strong detent results in excellent deployment. I own knives with liner lock(#5), frame lock(#4), lockback (#3), Axis lock(#2), and compression lock (#1 fav).

PS Liner lock is different because the liner is a piece of steel inside the scale of the handle. Frame lock uses entire handle of the knife and is generally stronger than liner lock.

That cheaper Pico was way better looking. This looks like something a suburban mall ninja would carry.

Agreed. It's bigger than I thought so I'm still using my old EDC.

Just because it's black doesn't mean it's worse than a shiny knife. Everyone needs one tacticool knife in their collection.

Thank you for the response. I haven't looked at knives for a while. Now that I have, I've been seeing those liner locks and really didn't like the design but it was seemingly impossible to find one I liked with the lockback, which I was more familiar with. I did see a few frame locks and after your response I'll revisit those.

Coldsteel knives use a stronger version of lockback called Triad lock. Spyderco also makes lockback knives that are of high quality. Of course there are the traditional Buck knives. There are many more choices at all kinds of different price and quality.
