The Wait Is Over. From this thread, orders for the 2023 BladeForums Traditional Knife are open & here's your handy order button. OPEN TO ALL MEMBERS $200 ea, one per household, must have been a member prior to 3/2023
I will get the full scoop at Shot but it appears to have a user adjustable screw to adjust lockup tightness. Not sure how it will be on the actual production models but here is a pic courtesy of Tom Kyle (FrogMan).

If anybody thinks I'm kidding, see also...oh DAMN, Fuzz took his whole site down, the pic isn't available online. I'm sending it to Spark RIGHT NOW so you can all see what I'm talking about.
Go look in Shop Talk for a thread by me on this sucker!
Now, I'm not pissed. I *gave* it away to ANY company willing to use it it build a megafolder. It's also possible we're looking at independent invention; I first posted my pic of the system on 11-09-98 both here (in Shop Talk) and on KF's Design forum. They *might* have had prototypes with this lock prior to 11/9, or they might not have. I published as soon as it came into my head, or at least within a day or two.
I'm sitting here laughing my a$$ off. BUT if my posts and pics pre-date MT's prototypes, then as far as I'm concerned, Microtech "owes me" the chance to but a REALLY high-quality megafolder that puts the CSVG to SHAME!
Jim, if it is your look that they are using and they did not come up with it before you, then at the very least you deserve to get the knife they made free, IMO of course. Good luck with it. Nice to see a fellow forumite get credit for something. Hope you do.
Cobalt, I just exchanged EMail with Sniper308, who owns a Nemesis. He's confirmed it's the SAME lock as the Kestrel and dates back to '97, long before I thunk this up. See also the "lock design for comment" thread in Shop Talk.
