Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I just received this knife yesterday from BladeHQ, and the detent is way too strong. At first I figured the pivot was too tight, but once the knife is open, it will fall shut under it’s own weight when I remove the lock bar. So the pivot is obviously not the issue. One of the reasons I got this knife was for the great action that all the reviewers claimed it has. However, it’s so tight now that I cannot deploy it one handed. Instead I must open it two handed like you would open a slipjoint, and even then it requires way more force than your typical slipjoint, to the point that the thumb studs dig into my fingers. I played with the knife for about a half hour last night, and just kept opening and closing it, and it did get a slight bit easier to open during that time, but it’s still a long ways from being able to open one handed. Will this break in over time or should I send it back? Or is there anything else I can do to adjust it without damaging it. I’ve never disassembled a knife, so that’s not really something I’m comfortable doing to my new $300 knife.
