The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Lock Type, Blade Material, Sheath, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Ease of Opening
This knife is smaller than I expected. Not really a 4.5" blade, it comes to about 3.75" at best. The overall shape and blade and angle is nice. The handle material is not so great though, with a hard, rough plastic grip that wasn't completely molded around the steel liners, leaving it slightly loose at the corners where there is no screw holding the outer plastic to the inner steel liner. For the price, and for a knife made in China (didn't know that when I bought it), it is OK I guess, but not really as good as I had hoped for.
