Originally posted by pedropcola: CF 560’s. Not sure why they discontinued this one. Other than not having the lock bar insert it’s as good as any other.
After researching I found that 0560’s with serial numbers 0-10,000 were manufactured without a lockbar insert. 0560’s with serial numbers over 10,000 had a lockbar insert. So I searched until I found one that fell into that series.

Nice. Good to know. My three are all sub 10k so no lock bar insert. My experience has never had a titanium lock bar fail so I’m not real worried. I just got a 562Ti from USAmade, all ano’d up. What a great blade. Design and materials are tough to beat. I will probably pick up one or two more.
