Liner-lock Skipper pictures

I recently found a new liner-lock Skipper in stock locally, and promptly bought it. I suppose it is not very popular, because I could not even find one proper picture online of this version, other than the official one on the Vic site. So here are a few, for those of you who are interested.
I always wanted to try the Skipper. The changes Vic made with the beefed up construction on the liner-lock version convinced me to pull out the wallet. It’s a big burly knife, and I always thought the slide locks lacked somewhat in the muscle department. Most obvious was that puny flathead driver/ cap-lifter, shamelessly stolen from the 91mm series... It simply did not do the design justice IMO.
Anyway I like this one... Compared here to the Soldier 08 and Workchamp slide lock.
