Jimmy Lile's buttonlock mechanismChip what type of lock does your Lile have? Another beauty you lucky guy.
With the Paul lock the blade is "fixed" to the button and the handle rotates, this is more like most buttonlocks where the button is fixed and the blade rotates if that makes sense. Also, the Lile uses ball bearings for the lockup similar to the Deadlock OTF making the action crazy smooth even compared to the Paul.How does this lock mechanism differ from the Paul knife axial lock?
Nah, had a couple back when I was big on CPF and I even had 3x Ti Ra Clickys at one point...only fancy ones left are my Tain and an OLD Photonfanatic (Fred Pilon) custom we collaborated on.Awesome pliers
I also have those, between that and the Barry woods we do share some of the finer things, any mcgizmos?
