Default What's the strongest type of folder lock?

My Buck Bantam's lock is one of those ones that run along the backside of the handle. Today, I was cutting away some branches, and the lock gave out and the knife closed on me, cutting the piss outta my hand in the process.

Are there any other folders with stronger locks that won't give out on me like that?

Well now that you got that stuff out of your hand, you don't have to worry about it anymore.
