Do an reputable Custom Folder makers use another locking system other than the liner lock? Such as the Benchmade Axis Lock or others type of locks on their defensive custom folders?

Because you mention Benchmade I think the AXIS and their new 610 knife is a great set up if you want a big folder. If size is an issue the 635 is a great choice.

Framelocks are made by a number of high end folder makers. Take a look around http://www.customknivesandguns.com between Kit Carson, Neil Blackwood, and Jim Burke they should be able answer any additional questions you might have.

It's a production knife, not a custom, but I REALLY like my benchmade Rukus.

I can easily flick it open with my weak hand, it's BIG, sharp, great steel, and locks positively.

Frame locks from Chris Reeve, Rick Hinderer, and the guys at Strider come to mind immediately. There are more then a few others as well.

I'll keep looking at the knife web sights. Frame lockers are the same system as a liner lock. I'm trying to find something more along the lines of an axis lock, but in a custom. Thanks

I see what you mean. Alan Eilishwietz. He does alternative lock ups.

Yep, Elishewitz is your man. He is my personal favorite custom knife-maker. I own several of his knives, and as Steve stated, he offers a few different locking mechanisms; including a button-lock similar to what you're looking for.
