    Why no Compression Lock / CBBL ?????????

    Many new models were shown this year in Amsterdam, and man are they amazing. But I can't help but wonder why there aren't any new models being released that utilize the compression lock / CBBL. These locks offer amazing strength while at the same time add something special to a knife, a second kind of cool if you will. So whats the deal? Why do you think these lock types aren't being utilized?

    Hi Cobra,

    We're working on a few, just not far enough along to discuss or show. They are both difficult locks to make an not all of our makers can make them. The Golden facility is working hard to keep up with current models. Also knife afi's like the newer locks, but much of the genral public thinks of them as new fashion and would like to see more history.

    The compression lock has become my favorite lock followed by the CBBL. Having purchased 5 examples this year alone, I look forward to learning more about the upcoming releases.
    Cheers ...

    Mark me down as very interested in any new CBBL models.

    I can't wait for the Sage series with the CBBL--that's definitely going to be on my immediate purchase list.

    I just want to see the stop lock in production. That one's a game changer.

    I would love to see a compression lock on a smaller blade. Something like a native 5 with a compression lock would be awsome.
