no pics but is the same as a liner lock except rather than the liner being utilised for the blade lock the frame itself is cut out to engage like a liner lock therefore the liner is lots sturdier/thicker than a liner lock, is one of the better locks imho, perhaps only the axis lock is better.

hello,

A frame lock is the same as a liner lock without handle scales over it from what iv seen and heard. the likes of a Chive or a or a Kiss has a fame lock and an Emerson or a or some Benchmades have liner locks. I think :)

Does anybody happen to have pics/sketches of other lock types for comparison ? Something that woudl show how each of these locks works ? I've been searching on Google for that kind of information but i always ran into online stores selling knives with various types of locks rather than any pages explaining the differences between them in picture and text.

some framelocks have scales though, i have a ralph minimaxx w/carbon fibre handles and its a frame lock, the buck/strider 880 also is darned near a frame lock imho, its not really though i dont think. i dont think many framelocks have scales though.

I would disagree. I think if the knife has scales that cover the entire length of the frame or lock, then thats a linerlock even if its a thick linerlock. Now overlays that leave parts of the frame exposed are a different story
