Kwaiback Button Lock
The Kwaiback has been our flagship knife since 2009! What a long run! Over the years we've made many modifications/revisions/updates/and types, but this time we decided to try something completely different (something that I've been wanting to do for a long time)... A button lock. I would argue that a button lock is significantly stronger for a lock than a frame lock.
I spent some time picking Brian Tighe’s brain at a show about his button lock flipper setup and then went to my trusty drawing board and started doodling. I made a few changes to how Brian makes his, as I had a previous button lock designed for the Sumo and Tradecraft and wanted to implement some of those features. I figured I would add a front flipper tab for the fidgetiers in the crowd and a concealed carry contour (rounding of the handles)… and wham! We have the Kwaiback Button Lock! The action on this knife is insane!!! It's a must have for your 2023 knife lineup.
