That is a real shame about the lock up mate
, I agree early lock up is much better.
My NIB CX Skeletool has a very late lock up & it bugs the hell out of me , I think the early Skeletools/CX's were prone to this & it is one of the reason's LM did the larger button fastener, it actes as a blade stop
, VERY odd solution though as it gives you no leeway for linner lock wear. One of my 'blade launcher' LM's knives has worn & now has a poor lock up , that again bugs me
. I do not think MT manufactures, LM , VIc & Wenger, do linner locks as well as dedicated knife manufactures
