    Do you know if the Lock 45 is what inspired the framelock of today? I believe there was another knife like this the OKC arrow came with a liner that locked at the top and bottom of the tang, rather than just the bottom. I believe the set up had lots of issues on the OKC.

    Were there issues with the Lock 45? What came first the lock 45 or the Reeve intergral lock?

    The Lock 45 pre dates the Frame lock that morphed into the Sebenza as we know it via several minor changes.

    The only issue that I'm aware of was the ability for the lock 45 to be over extended in the open position..... past the 180 degree mark. That was if the lock wasn't engaged at the 180 point.
    Ju Pengfei is one of the most knowledgeable guys I know of the early folders I'm sure he could better explain the transition and variations. He has both a lock 45 and a very early framelock, pre named Sebenza.

    So in a way the lock 45 did evolve into the framelock?
