My view is why worry about where the lockbar is unless it's causing a problem? I've never felt a knife with “late” lockup was worse in any way than a knife with “early” lockup. If anything the knives with the lockbar barely engaged would be less “safe” no?
You're likely to seeing a difference from gripping the knife (and lockbar) tightly or after putting pressure on the blade so the lock adjusts inward a bit.
The reason i mention it not because the lockup % bothers me but rather because on Regulars there is less room for the thumb to disengage the lock and the room gets smaller and smaller as the lockup % reaches 100. Even worse when u got a fat thumb.
