I was just reading the "I blame Stich and Doug" thread and decided to pick up the peanut my sweet heart gave me and take it outside for a bit of whittling. I have not used this knife for anything, other than the usual "opening and closing routine",as I wanted to keep it pristine.
I was going to give Carl's advice a go and put it in my pocket and put it to use.
I admired it a bit, picked up a nice stick of aged walnut, and began to whittle. After a bit of bark and a few feathers, I was satisfied and proceeded to close the blade. Piiiiiig....the spring snapped in half.
Catastrophic Failure...(internal considering )
It's the stainless model and absolutely new!! I have never had this happen before and since it was a present I want it repaired. How does the process work with case.
I could email them but wanted the advice of my fellow forumites. No receipt ...it was a gift.
