    A normal Ti-lock, which I am especially fond of, sold today in an hour and four minutes. It's still a treasure, and I'd like to see it back in production.

    I hope many of you agree, and those of you whom have not handled one, run to it.

    I have one, great knife. They started the fancy versions, so I was hoping that with time (and more money) I could upgrade, but that wasn't enough the keep the knife alive. As far as it coming back in production...well the Ti-Lock was a Chris Reeve and Hawk collaboration and Chris Reeve has retired from CRK; w/o a champion, projects die. Gavin and Grant Hawk have moved on to other projects. About 2 years ago, they used the Ti-lock clip as an upgrade on the later version of Hawk-Boker Griploc.

    I had been meaning to pick up a Ti-lock since they came out. I just recently picked up an Elemental after putting it off since they've been discontinued and I've fallen for it hard;). It really is an amazing design, and executed to the highest standard.

    I have owned pretty much at least a few of every Sebenza design or configuration ever created. However I have never owned a ti-lock. Could someone please explain to me how the locking system works, and is this a knife worth buying to edc?
    Thanks so much for everyone's time.
    Best regards,

    Do a search and you will find massive threads by kidcongo and myself regarding the ti lock. Here is a pic of mine a year ago. Ive had my ti lock for over two years now. It lives with a mora companion and my AFO II for work. I take really good care of it to pass it down to the kids one day.

    It's a great EDC. Better blade to handle ratio than almost every other folder. Can be opened like a slipjoint or one handed, plus easily flicked open. Ball bearing pivot. You should buy one, but they are no longer made :(

    These are incredible reviews that will make you search everywhere for a ti-lock. I still recommend the original.

    Good luck and thanks again people for the info!!!

    Sorry. Tried to quote the reviews in original response, and it ended up as a reply.

    Such a goofy looking knife. Interesting lock idea, but it never took off... maybe for the better.

    Nope. It's a fantastic knife. Lock just adds to the appeal and aesthetic for me.

    It's a fantastic knife and once you learn how to open & close it with one hand, you will be hooked.

    I had one for a couple months, sold it fairly quickly. When I saw they were being discontinued I didn't feel any need to grab another.

    Thanks so much for all of the great input! I really am considering picking one up, it will be like trying a "new" CRK for the very first time...Awesome!!!

    I have two Ti-Locks. One user and one Steam Version mint in the box. I'm really glad I have a user.

    Glad I snagged mine when I did:

    An absolutely smashing EDC, and one that I have no intention of ever parting with.

    Go for it! You won't regret it. The "new" factor was greater with the TiLock than any other CRK I've owned.

    I have two of them (different models) and will never sell them. They are great looking knives that are a joy to use and work with. Knifeart has the In Motion model available. http://www.knifeart.com/tilock.html
