    How does this lock mechanism differ from the Paul knife axial lock?

    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.

    Any one of these, but I usually grab one of the Endelas or Enduras. They are both pretty much perfect for my daily carry needs.

    Nah, had a couple back when I was big on CPF and I even had 3x Ti Ra Clickys at one point:eek:...only fancy ones left are my Tain and an OLD Photonfanatic (Fred Pilon) custom we collaborated on.

    I always wanted one of the perrin tri folders but I never got one. I have a DE triple action but I keep it as more of a curio. The aluminum is just too soft.
