You've played by the rules and taken care of business. Wife and children. Home mortgage. Car payments. Dance lessons and soccer practice. Retirement planning. Always putting others first. But now its time to think of yourself. Introducing the 2022 Husky Folding Lock-back Utility Knife. Finely crafted from cheap pot metal by strange, gibberish-speaking foreigners in a distant land, the Husky utility knife imparts a pride of ownership found nowhere else in knifedom. The Husky's stainless utility blade slices cardboard and carpet with aplomb, while saving the blade on your "good" knife for other tasks. With its rich, sanguine hue, exquisite texture, unsurpassed ergonomics and polished pocket clip, the Husky is ready for adventure from the urban jungle to mountain trout streams. Priced under $9.00 at your local big box store. Husky - Built for Adventure.
I was reminded again today why I don’t carry this knife very often. While it has great potential, it literally takes no pressure at all to close the blade. I wish I had a better understanding or working knowledge of this “double detent” system, but if anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them. I’ve emailed Isham Bladeworks several times to see if there’s anything they can do to give it some sense of “lock up” when opened…..but my inquiries have gone unanswered.
It’s a shame that using it scares the crap outta me. At least I got a pretty cool pic today, lol.
To paraphrase what @Sharp & Fiery said about another slip joint, I’m now the proud owner of a glorified letter opener.
God help me if I hit any tape with it….

I keep looking at them... Ho do you like it?
This Griptilian chatter got me into the top of the two levels of the box that store my Benchmades, selecting this one for Wilkins Wednesday.I have had numerous Griptilians over the years. I started off with the standard 154CM with the black nylon scales. Liked the handle ergos, but didn’t care for the hollow sound from the handles. I later swapped the scales to AWT aluminum scales when he first started out. Really, liked the knife even more after that. I later gifted that knife to a good friend who still carries that knife. My preference is for G10, Carbon Fiber, or Micarta for the scales. The Griptilian is a great work knife for me and I enjoy using it in the shop.
The factory handle shape is indeed quite ergonomic, though, as JonesE wrote, the plastic jimping notwithstanding, and I'm eager to see your M4 CF knife when you get it. Is that one ordered from the Custom shop or did you find a Gold Class available somewhere?Well: you gotten me into even MORE trouble... They're now on my list! , and have been ordered.
M4, and carbon fiber version...
