hey people, whats up, i was reading a post "Liner lock...Ti vs. SS", and it reminded me to say to all of you, dont flick open your folders, liner locks or back locks. You dont know how many knives is screwed up by doing this. All my Benchmades with Titanium liners went back for repair, i wrecked and hade sever play on my Voyagers, Enduras, and one custom Emerson CQC6, damn it. Today i went to the local gun store, and my friend who worked there let me handle a new version Spyderco Military, ATS-34 full serr.-damn, wish i could of seen a cpm440v. Anyway, he let do speed openings, and combat drills(quick out-of-the-pocket openings) after about 25-35 hard slamming openings, the liner didn't move much, it moved about 1/32 of an inch more, but was far from the middle, a great sign. I tell ya people, i wish i never made that stupid post about the Military, now i love it, i bought it up front for 129.95 plus a 10% discount. Everything i said about the Military i take back, i even broke out my torx drivers and took this baby apart, all lines where perfect, clean liner, un like my benchmades with all grind marks. Sorry i took it apart, i'll never send this to Spydie Warranty. The stainless liner is quite beefy, and i know now it wont wear. I got to say, im starting to like it better than the SOCOM i got, the screws are huge, more strong, and the pivot pin on the military is huge, i have an infatuation with pivot pins, the bigger, the better. To the people out there, i now suggest a stainless steel liner, instead of titanium, titanium will not last, and a correctly made steel liner lock like the Spyderco Military is a hard to come accross item today.
