    I have had this knife for a few years and have not carried it due to the slightest finger pressure on the framelock would not allow the flipper to work. I have seen You Tube videos on this. I know some say that you have to be careful not to put your finger on the frame lock. This is the only knife that I had to always be aware on my finger location to open the knife. Yes ZT screwed up on this model. Their pocket clip was not a low rider so I decided that I needed to try and correct this problem with the frame lock. I have large hands so I made a 316 SS low rider clip that covered more of the frame lock. Now when I remove the knife and how it sits in my hand presents no issue with my finger coming in contact with the frame lock. Problem solved. I hope you like the remedy.
