Wanted to check out a 940-2 but was scared after reading countless threads about how the quality control was god-awful. i've owned 2 griptillians in the past but sold them. not because of the QC, but because they're too fat and i didn't like the scale material. that being said, the QC was spot-on for both of those. also, they were both stiff at first but smoothed out after flipping a bunch of times....i've also read threads where people were saying they should come smooth right out of the box or you should send them back, but i knew better and sure enough they got buttery smooth. so everyone saying that was just dead wrong. ordered the 940-2 and was kind of expecting to get a bad one... threads had me paranoid. got it in and it's perfect in terms of blade centering, no blade play but it came SUPER stiff. so i went and typed in "benchmade 940 stiff detent" and found more threads of people saying they don't need a break in period, and it needs to be returned. again, just horrible misinformation. i knew better and sure enough it smoothed out and now flips really nicely. so what's the deal here?? am i just lucky? or are there just haters? i'm not even a benchmade guy (I own mostly spyderco's). has the QC changed? very curious because all 3 BM's i've got were perfect.
