Yes! Most have been made with Micarta. There were orange and black Delrin, Nifebrite and Tortoise Acrylic and a Osage Orange that I know of.

Another four and there ain't no more.
#1 A double bladed fish knife that can be disassembled for cleaning.The scaler teeth face in opposite directions and the curved area is extremely sharp.
#2 Stamped,"L.J.M." the large fullered double edge blade has rings of Micarta interspersed with aluminum.Came out of a huge collection of militaria and I believe it was a WWII theatre knife.
#3 An unmarked dagger with unusually colored Micarta rings for the handle.
#4 A Kinfolks throwing knife

I don't think that is as big an issue as having it close while you are working with it. Some time ago I did a post on this knife showing it's deficiencies. The concept was by one of the great knife designers of our time;the late Walter,"Blackie" Collins.
Blackie;along with his brother Michael who was a fantastic scrimshaw artist as well as a custom knifemaker were responsible for many of the innovations on modern production knives. This one;in my opinion was probably the worst design he ever did.
Essentially the way it works is you press down on the serrated button on the top of the knife and that elevates the point.Pushing forward on the button moves the blade to the open position and the point drops locking the blade open.
To close,you depress the lock bar(on the bottom of the handle) and pull up on the blade allowing it to slide to the rear and into the locked close position. It can be a bit awkward to operate until you get the hang of it. It is NOT a one hand opener by any means.
The problem lies in the fact that if you are attempting to do any heavy cutting(such as dismembering heavy cardboard)and putting heavy downward pressure on the handle your small finger rests right on the lock bar and can easily trigger the lock. This results in the blade sliding backward rather handily and trapping the flesh between you thumb and forefinger between the sharp back edge of the blade and the frame.(DO NOT ask how I know this!)
Here are the pictures showing the operating sequence.
The pictures shown are of a wood handled Rolox that I bought new.The Micarta handled version I got in a trade.They were not cheap knives when new;in the 1980's they were about $65 US for this model. They also had a slightly smaller version and ones with stag handles.

Aha, so a simple push onto it is not enough to deploy it. It needs a push forward as well  :tu:
The un-lock button position is unfortunate though  :facepalm:
