Works well, and is a great training kit to teach someone how to build a folder. I would suggest a few slight modifications. First, make the spring a bit beefier, it deforms too easily, fixed that by pushing a small piece of foam under the tab to help it return to lock position. Secondly, notch the top handle slightly so that you can get your thumbnail on the lock to push it down. Most knives are indented there to allow the lock to be accessed. This is similar to a liner lock spring setup, which might also make a nice modification. Nice job! A bit of tweaking and it works and looks good!

thanks for the feedback! i'll upload new files with the modifications you suggested :)
