Of the four EDC I have in my possession, three exhibited barrels which either galled or cold welding to the handle. Jo has kindly sent me replacement hardware when requested, but I believe this is an issue worth directing some attention to. I should not have to be concerned with securing an 8d common wire nail (in lieu of a punch tool), a hammer and a cut-off wheel (to take down deformed aluminum) with a pass through the freezer to remove said barrels. Anyone else have difficulty removing the barrels upon disassembly?
