I picked my new HEST/f 2.0 from a local knife 'pusher'/enabler last week. Wow! A T10 Torxx driver on one side and the two-pin tool on the other side permitted a very few degrees CCW rotation to loosen the pivot ever so slightly. That, and of questionable value, a needle applicator drop of clock oil on said pivot, and the knife pivots properly, ie, without needing a strong hand! Good edge, too. Very near CRK in fit & finish - a nice knife. Thanks, Lionsteel!
