OTF's, trust worthy?
Your average otf knife is not the knife to depend on for solid lock-up. Without solid lock-up it's worthless.
Folding auto's are the preferred knife to carry on the average day.
Sure a Micro-Tech is reasonably trustworthy with good quality and would probably be my choice in a otf if a otf is a must , which it never is.
Since i bought a Piranha Excalibur I have been carrying it all the time.
Obviously a Sand-Shark is not to be scratched up and dinged so that is out of the choices.
I would never carry mine anyway.
I totally trust my Excalibur to open and lock-up strong ~ enough to penetrate the average leather jacket easily.
Successful torture tests on it are amazingly common.
It uses sears inside that are bigger than that of a Sand-Shark.
It's the knife I carry always.
It's a lot faster than a folder, even a Dalton is slower coming out and in.
Knives I wouldn't carry (otf's) Infidel is weak and light...Harkins Triton is a piece of crap... any of these knives fail to open with a bit too much oil dropped on the blade.
Even micro-techs don't function if a drop too much is used on/in it.
I flooded my Excalibur (of which I have 3) Black, Silver and Desert Camo with Militec and Mobil 1.
I mean that I submerged it and the Excalibur still opend hard every time.
Just as laser sharp as any Micro-Tech too. It's like a razor.
Bright chrome mirror blades are standard which also makes it stand out among the rest.
Try one, you won't be disappointed.
Check out PVK knives videos on breakdown and torture testing.
You'll be sold. I know there are better knives but in the (otf) category they all seem like novelties (even Micros) compared to the strength of a Piranha Excalibur.
They don't break the bank either.
An old Halo I have is the only knife besides a Sand-Shark that I trust to carry ...+ Excalibur.
Please excuse the ramble.

On the other hand.....I have had 4 sandsharks all double edge with hook blades.3 were junk..lots of misfires and lock up problems...sent the 3 bad back to Jim and had pocket clips installed and also to get them tuned..they never did work right.
Also IMO sandsharks are HUGE way to big for blade size !
I also know for a fact the sandshark used for the famous 55gal drum test was a ringer....with beefed up internals.
I sold all mine off...for a good profit as they do look cool.
