So comparing non-fixed knives, which one is stronger a LUDT or Scarab?

Which handle would snap open first under pressure?

Which attachment point is stronger, the pivot pin in the LUDT or the rail system within a Scarab when it's deployed?

Tough to say.....probably quite comparable. I would guess it would be easier to get the scarab to fail lockup, but that’s only a guess

I agree - I think the LUDT is stronger than the Scarab.  Alas, I'm not aware of any formal testing that bears this out though.

I think the LUDT will hold up better in a wider variety of conditions, OTF mechanics can fail at a higher rate. Note: I have biased toward LUDTS and other side openers
