Temporary lock in the forward position has been strengthened so that the blade will stay extended even if it encounters a hard surface or bone during use.
The slider mechanism now contains a notch in the retracted position that holds the blade more securely in the passing/ retracted position.
A permanent lock position has been added to the retracted position. This requires a conscious amount of force to engage the slider into the permanent lock position.
