I’m not a fanboy, but they are trully excellent knives, I would return it and give the 21 or zaan a shot, the only thing I’ve noticed on mine is that they lockup late, but stay there, the you can get X amount of knives is a beaten topic, if you want a CRK get one, mistakes happen
Owning both version of the same knife, Holt V3 and V4, and doing normal EDC tasks, I can tell you that I tend to lean towards the liner lock,
The action is the same regradless how you hold the knife
Both lock up great, have no problem with them on normal EDC tasks
The action on the liner lock...
