Yes it does,what I like about it over yours is it don't have the blade lock clip that seems to always get in the way,and the way it slides out the front,much easier to use one handed. :salute:

Both my dad and I have a sheffield. I have used mine quite a bit, but nowhere near as hard as what my dad has put his through. Through the winter and most of the spring for three or so years, his sheffield gets used to cut the twine on hay bales. The knife is still going, although he did break the little tab for the blade release. I hate to say I liked a chinese made knife, but I have to put the sheffield as one of the best things that cost around $10. One neat trick I found with the knife is that when opening it one handed, instead of using the thumb stud, I put my thumb up where the blade exchanger lock pivots. It makes the knife much easier to open, although I guess you do increade the risk of cutting your thumb(that hasn't happened yet). Also I found you can close it one handed by pressing the lock release with your thumb and letting the blade holder close on you pointer finger, and then closing it the rest of the way. The only problem I have found with this method is that one might forget that this isn't something you should do with a regular lockback(I think I did that once)>

I really like the Superknife SK2. It has the best knife changing system I've seen, being very secure, simple, and doubling as a thumb opening disk. Overall size and shape are good, and the pocket clip allows the knife to sit low. Much better than the previous Superknife designs, an most of the similar locking utility knives I've seen on the market.

My son in law has the SK2 knife looks like it is a vary good knife. I recently retired i was a carpet and linoleum layer for 30yr. The last three years i used folding knifes. One was Craftsman and the other a Sheffield after three years of hard use they have both held up well. One thing that most people don't know is that you can resharpen utility blades. I also have a Kobalt folding slotted blade (AKA Bloody Mary Knife) knife it also is a good knife. Slotted blades cut carpet well and give you four blades in one.
