They either can't replace the safeties or they are too lazy to. Either way, it's pretty much the mark of an amateur.
I totally agree, and also suspect the use of "24K Gold Plated Screws" to replace the traditional brass scale pins falls into the same category.
It does.

Personally I like the stiletto with no safety, think they look better and I'd never carry one so I'm not worried about one going off in my pocket. Eact to their own.
