    I purchased a Domin V4516A2 for my son's birthday. Now, a few months later, the locking mechanism won't engage. Is this reparable?

    Difficult to tell without seeing the knife...
    Maybe contact the USA rep for Kizer?
    I'm in Netherlands Europe so can't help you out, sorry

    Did he use it to chop some trees with?
    I would think that the pivots just loose. Screw it in a bit. Not too tight cause you don't want to smash the bearings.

    See if that helps. Else send it in via warranty unless you can provide more info and pictures or even video.

    the side lock bar does not slip behind the blade. I don't believe he chopped anything with the knife. I sent an Email to service, but they have not responded
    edited to say kizer did respond, I sent email and pictures of the liner lock not engaging.

    Pinn Zhou from Kizer was able to resolve the issue. Some debris or something was keeping the liner lock from engaging. Cleaning, light lubrication, and a more emphatic opening results in a solid lock. Thanks. Excellent customer service.
