Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I opened mine and put the box up so fast that I cannot remember if it came with a tool or not to be honest. Tim stated that it could be taken apart but I have also seen where Bill Harsey highly suggested for most people to not attempt this due to the pressure/tightness of the spring? So, the short answer is yes, it can be disassembled, but be careful and do not expect it to be as easy as the other folders.
