Ron Lake has been called “the father of the modern folding knife” and literally co-authored the book on them in 1988, How To Make Folding Knives. But while Ron is busy making stunning custom folders in his Eugene, Oregon, workshop, he is always thinking. In this case, we believe he has perfected the lockback folder. Ron’s breakthrough is his patented* Lock Back Safety (L.B.S.) which allows the user to slide the small L.B.S. button forward to lock the blade both in the open and closed positions. When locked open, it is virtually impossible to accidentally release the blade even during vigorous cutting tasks. For those who are concerned about accidental opening, in-pocket or on-belt, simply slide the button forward to lock the knife closed until its next use. The blade is a classic drop point with a flat grind for strength and a brushed finish. Dual Lake-style thumb studs give fast either-hand opening, and the lockback release allows easy one-hand closing. The lockback design allows for a very flat build. The combination of stainless steel liners and lightweight injection-molded glass-filled nylon scales results in a very rigid frame. For grip, the handle features a basketweave texture and a pronounced finger choil and pommel. Over the years, others have tried to devise safeties for lockback folders, but Ron’s is the most effective and sophisticated we have seen.
