Wish that I could upload a video, to show you guys the problem I am having with this knife.
Just got mine today. Having problem with it closing. Who should I reach out to for this?
What is so hard about putting a deep carry clip on a knife? Why would I want 1" of a knife sticking out of my pocket making it eaier to get caught on something and lost?

Couldn't have said it better myself. I'm sure that if you looked around, you could find one online to mod it yourself. Post some pictures if you do (: I am ordering my knife right now - just torn on which color (thinking green or beige.) I will let you know if I find a "better" clip for mine.
I went with the green lol. I would like to try giving it a texture the way that people are suggesting in the reviews as well...seems like it will be a fun knife to customize.
would love to see the SPIKE, RHINO, and TOUCAN...offered

Just got my Lion in tan g10 scales. I am very impressed with attention to design detail on the handle. Having been an amateur knife maker in the past who did everything by hand it's the small details I appreciate, even though I know most of the work as done with machines.

Handle details I noticed and appreciated:
1. The angled chamfer on the insides of the SS liners are consistent in angle, size, and finish all the way around except where it exactly meets the handle spacer/lanyard/skull crusher.
2. At the handle spacer/lanyard, this piece stand proud (slightly elevated/raised) off the handle back contour. In addition, where it sits against the steel handle liner, the liner is "not" chamferred there so that there is no unsightly gap to collect crap if they did not design the liner and backspacer/lanyard piece to match exactly. Also the chamfer on the backspacer tailpiece itself, exactly matches the amount the piece stands proud . This means the spacer/tailpiece was not simply thrown in there. It was "designed" as part of the overall flow of the knife.
3. The exact same chamfer angle/size on the liners and spacer/tailpiece is the same put on flipper tab. Makes it all very consistent in both design and implementation. Some complain the the flip tab is a too hard on their fingers because it's edges are not chamferred more.. I don't know what to say about that. I don't have pansy fingers and I prefer the design is consistent in looks and implementation. This chamfer angle/size even matches the one on the pivot screw edges. That's serious attention to detail/design
4. They milled about 30% thinner section on the lock spring area so the lock is not so hard to disengage. Even milled it's pretty stiff so I can image how still it would be with the full thickness.
5. The G10 scales edges match the liner edges perfectly. Yes both pieces were cut by some precise CNC machines, but actually implementing and assembling it so matches "after" production steps is not easy. A few thousandths difference here and there and the assembled product doesn't match any more. This precise machining QC also shows with the inset head of the pocket clip into the g20 scale that shows no visible gaps around a part that probably cost 0.05 cents to stamp out. I do wish they had chamferred the edges of the pocket clip to match the rest of the lovely chamfers, but it's a stamped part, but they did well enough to polish off the sides of the clip so it doesn't show the stamping tears on non finished stamped parts.

So for the price. I am simply amazed. Hopefully I didn't just get lucky and they are all mostly as good as the one I got. I'm not going to comment on the blade or steel. The fact that I see a LOT of attention to tiny details and aesthetics on the handle alone makes my inner amateur knifemaker OCD very happy because I know how hard it is to make that level of design consistency by hand.

Ahhh well.. Even if they needed to make the holes a bit bigger in the spacer for fine tuning, I'll give them credit for good alignment on assembly! It's still amazing for the price!

No argument there :)
It's funny, I had never heard of "lock stick" until I started buying titanium frame lock knives.... But this knife, with it's steel liner lock, is the first knife to show me the meaning of the word!

Anyone else have that issue?
And is there any fix for it?

Thanks, I'll give that a shot.
I had forgotten about that post, it seems to have broken in now, doesn't stick like it was, but still feels a little like nails on a chalkboard now and then

my first experience with a bestech was the blade snapped at the pivot hole after flicking it open... ( and not forcefully btw.) several people had te same problem with that model...turns out is was a bad batch of D2,,what i will say is this..their customer service is AAA... i sent pics and explanation. and they sent a replacement immediately through their guy in Louisiana. no request for a rma, or to return it or anything. and he kept in touch from them moment they contacted him till i received the replacement.. the replacement has been an awesome knife with no problems ..i now have 6 different models....very impressive products especially for china. its typically a crap shoot with Chinese companies on quality...AND customer service ( usually NONE). Bestech is an exception. if yours is sticking, email bestech i bet they replace it...
I have four betech knives and I love them all. At this price of $40-50 you won’t find anything better, imo. Had to add that for all the haters who think they know everything and only their opinion matters. Is the lion the perfect knife, no; but what is the perfect knife anyway. I would make a few changes if i were to design it for myself; I’d like the grip to be textured more as it’s a little slick and the angular parts to be smoother.

I hear G10 can pretty easily be filed and sanded if you want to tweak it a bit 👍

And I'm with you, these "budget line" Bestechs are damn near impossible to beat at these drop prices
This looks like the CRKT Shenanigan.
What really separates them?

if they are as slick and clean as their folders, i can see myself getting in trouble with my credit card company.

I bought this knife in the debut drop, and have been thoroughly impressed with it. The blade had an almost shaving sharp edge on it, about 20 passes on my sharpmaker and it was scary sharp. The ceramic bearing makes for an extremely smooth flip motion. The knife has a nice feel to it, and decent grip. If I had to say something negative, the only thing would be that the beige is a bit lighter then it appears in the pictures. Semper Fi.
