I bought two of these recently.

This is a really nice knife, and cheap.

looks like a nice comfortable handle. Not sure about the "locking" method though, you will have to give us an update. Does the ferrule ever move while the knife is open? I have had some nasty cuts with locking knives that did not stay locked...

I know what you mean. A running joke with my family is that I can find a way to cut myself on a butter knife.

The locking mechanism is pretty simple. As you can see, the collar fits around a ferrule. The collar slides left/right, at the bottom has a sort of "catch" and on the top is slanted on each side. It's a little too tight, needed a bit of grease to make it easy to use, but other than that slides pretty easily.

As long as the knife doesn't have much play in this arrangement, because of shrinkage of the wood or damage to the collar, it's not going anywhere.

I'm very impressed with the knife for the price at this point, but haven't put much use on it yet.
