    I was really looking into the sebenza and strider then naturally i look at other frame lock knives (XM-18, Bradley Alias 1, Sage 2, Titanium Military) and I need some help! Haha can you say which ones you like...in order and why. All help appreciated thank you.

    I don't own any of those but my favorite frame lock I have is my zero tolerance 0301
    It's a very well built and would stand up to whatever task you throw at it. It's not a strider but was a collaboration between mick strider and ken onion and features the strider tiger stripe on the blade. I would recommend looking at one.

    Don't forget the ZTs. :) I just got my 0301 and it's amazing.

    It all really depends on how much you want to spend, what kind of style you like, what you're going to use the knife for, etc. All those knives have different prices, but most of them will do just as much as all the others. Take your time and look them over, pick which one you like.


    Edit:Someone beat me to it.

    As unexciting as it is, my favorite is the sebenza. It just..works so well.

    I like the Darrel Ralph CUDA MAXX and MADD MAXX and also the Steve Ryan Vorpal. I like large blades especially during melon season.

    Of course the Sebenza, the HTM Madd Maxx, the Kershaw Speedform, but my favorite is the Kershaw Volt. But the last two, Speedform & Volt, are no longer available except on the secondary market.

    I have quite a few framelock folders that I adore but my current favorite is my EDC , my pimped BM LFTi, truly a badass knife that can easily go toe to toe with any of the usual suspects. :)

    Although I do like my Sebenza, Buck Mayo, and Buck Waimea a lot, this one from Ray Laconico is by far my favorite

    i really enjoy my zt0300. very strong, practical, elegant, and powerful.

    i own a dpx Hest 2.0 which i love also. after breaking in the ti lock its a lot nicer. its a lot smaller than the zt 0300 though. but it also has a wave like open notch which doubles as a bottle opener. and a window breaker. i use the window breakers to power through packing tape while opening boxes of product at work when I'm in a rush and don't want the blade out because too many people are around and one day i always cut myself being bummed into.

    and i now just bought a hogue ex01 which is by far my favorite of the 3. it opens so fast closes so smooth and with one flick. i can't say enough good things about this knife. only thats its 154cm steel.

    I'm saying all this because if i had to rate my use of the 3 i would rate it ex01, 0300, 2.0

    i love ti frame locks but i don't love the assisted opening of the zt 0300 i need to be careful when closing it one handed in a hurry. i personally am attracted to strong build knifes with easy opening and closing because of my personal needs.

    g/l with your search. if i were you i would look into a xm-18/24 :))))))

    Sebenza. My small regular with BG42 is my favorite, then the large and small micarta's.

    For me, it's my new XM-24. It's a beast of a knife. Also like my Strider SMF and ZT 301. I need a bigger knife for my hands.

    I love my Large Regular Sebenza....lockup hasn't moved much, if at all, in the 6+ years that I've had it. Planning on ordering the ZT 0550 this week as well. :D
