    I got big meaty hands and need a good carry knife. I've been carrying a Kershaw Scallion for a few years now, but have a major complaint. I've had the knife unlock a couple of times during use and cut my finger. I'm guessing my meaty grip pressed the unlock in...

    Any suggestions for a replacement?

    i carry a crkt mt rainier, the liner lock is great and I dont think i could unlock it with my grip if i tried, and it also has a great safety on the top that locks the blade open

    i was skeptical when i bought it because I wasnt sure how well the safety would function but i love it, anytime I open it my thumb locks the safety when I grip, and it didnt take long to get used to unlocking it to close it without slowing me down.

    Don't use a knife with a liner lock if you have this problem.
