Nothing wrong with the lock, at least not for anybody who hasn't got childsized hands.
I can open and close mine one handed and i have never cut my hands while doing so in the 5 years i have it.

Never buy from Ultimate Equipment.
They will charge your PayPal / Credit Card
but will never send you a knife or contact you.

Sucker? Moron. I bought this from the owner of the company who is 10 minutes from my house. Why do so many open their mouths on youtube when they are clueless.

@MrUtubegunner just an FYI, it was designed by an american, pattened the locking system,and used a friend in china w/ the machinery to cut the steel. if you dont believe that the creator is a member of the 1911 forum and there is a posting about this knife's creation

@MrUtubegunner $100 with the 440C blade, More with the US made S30V blade. Raidops is purchased from Raidops directly.

BTW, mine is marked "Glass Breaker" instead of made in China near the lanyard loop; it works. It is my understanding that these are produced in Canada as well.

I own one of the "compact folder" versions of this knife and have had it since November 2010. I have no issues with one handed operations of this knife; deployment of the blade with my thumb is quick. Closing the knife is also relatively easy once you get the hang of the lock. While pressing the hammerhead lock with the thumb, I place my index finger on the "paddle" of the blade. I find once you become accustomed to it, it is extremely smooth.

@customtacticals ya i guess that could work, all i know about the production of the knives is they no longer say china on the bottom and i read he hand makes them but that could be wrong

@MrRastafarianman Not necessarily, he could have put the release for the lockback at the back of the knife where the notches in the grips are. I don't see how a liner lock would make the knife any thicker either. One of the liners would simply have a lock bar cut into it.

As for where they are made now, I'm not aware if they changed the location so you could be right. Now the real question would be where they are made instead.

i dont believe they ae made in china anymore but also he couldnt put a lockback because he would of had to cut into the grips which would defeat the whole purpose of being able to put on factory grips and im sure he didnt use a liner lock because it wouldve made the knife thicker than it already is

Wow, that's unusual. Unique idea. The blade geometry looks like something out of Cold Steel's catalog. Would make a heck of a great gift for the 1911 owner who might want to match custom grips.

@Wyndstarthedruid My bad – I should have said Thumb Disc (or paddle, though I've never heard that used). It opens just fine.. I'm sorry I opened it with two hands and made it misleading. It opens pretty quick one handed, no problems there. But having owned a RAT-1 before, this knife is far nicer in finish and fit than the RAT-1.

@customtacticals well, first its a paddle, thats debateable. but the "guard" looks like it gets int the way of a speedy opening. meaning your thumb would run into it and the paddle would just stop moving unless the blade is really loose, might just look like that, im not sure. but you did open it like that.
