    Any forumites have one in hand? I've been interested in this knife since it was announced because of the XR lock. I'm going to get on the interwebs to hunt reviews but I need to ask here on BF as well, the place I trust the most.

    What makes the the XR lock unique or compelling? I’d be interested to know how it works.

    It is a handsome knife for a sog.

    I wonder if those liners are ti or steel. Probably steel or they would have mentioned it.

    I don't really know. I'm hoping someone can tell me that, too. Just looking at it, it seems it could be:

    1) An Axis Lock by another name.
    2) A Bolt Lock by another name.
    3) Something evolved from 1 or 2.

    All of those interest me for one reason or another.

    I'd like to know more about this model too. Maybe you should start a thread in General where more people will see it.
    There's a new review on youtube.

    Watched another video. It's an axis style lock.

    Having one for several months, and I'm highly impressed. It is an Axis derivative, but the springs are shorter in arc, making the lockout stronger and quicker. It's also on bearings....I'm not a huge fan of bearings in a pivot for a working knife, but haven't had the issues I've had with other pivot-bearing equipped knives.

    For 2019 they are going to release two G10 variations in green and red.

    Plus the SEAL XR with a 3.9-inch S35VN blade.
