Wasp Gas Injection 001

Wasp Gas Injection 001

"Wow, you pulled the trigger on one of these...!  (Figuratively speaking, of course; the death blow comes with a push of the button here, not the pull of a trigger, I know.)  But while pricey, the WASP is far from being the most expensive…"

Yeah, Mike .. when I first joined .. I used my full name. Then.. like you .. had second thoughts & dropped my surname. Then .. as time passed .. another Dale joined .. then another. That's when I became "D ale". Many think it's a typo .. it is not.

.

And .. you've some really nice knives. Certainly .. no need to advertise the exact location of their storage.

.

Enjoy

Welcome to iKC Michael!

Sorry .. the listed link for the "leverlock 2" is incorrect

.

Here is a valid link.

.

Also .. I removed the finger guards of the small leverletto that I EDC .. it greatly enhances the pocket carry aspect. i.e. no finger guards catching & frustrating efficient retrieval from one's pocket.

Michael

!!! .. Wise choice .. !!!

The very same issues cause me concern

'n hence

my moniker is simply "D ale" & there's a totally bogus b'date entered & other less than accurate identifying data listed relative to my "personal identifying info". Very very understandable !!!

.

!!!!!!! ... Also .. glad you returned ... !!!!!!!

.

It's obvious you've an interest in autos .. as do I.

Might I suggest .. taking a look at these ...   ...   ...

Ganzo G748

Ganzo leverlock

Ganzo leverlock 2

Small Leverletto .. been EDCing one for 3+ yrs.

.

Ganzo makes a sturdy build. The blade steel is good .. takes an edge & holds it. AND .. the price can't be beat ..at least.. not by an equivalent quality product.

.

Their buttonlocks use the readily available 3/8" coil spring.  There's no lock on the G707 .. there is one on the G748. However .. both the G707 & G748 have recessed buttons.

.

Their leverlocks use a leafspring design ..&.. are therefor slightly quicker & forceful @ opening.

.

The small leverletto design I've EDC'd for 3+ yrs .. I really like. At 3.6" OAL closed .. it's great for pocket carry. The 2 5/8" blade is fine for anything I encounter in the work environment. I did remove the
